Background: Lola Sayu was a sulfurous, cracked planet that was home to the Citadel, a prison engineered to hold Jedi, during the Clone Wars.
A decaying world in the northeast of the galaxy, the brittle volcanic planet Lola Sayu was located in the Outer Rim Territories’ Belderone sector, in the system of the same name, along the western side of the Perlemian Trade Route, as well as the Salin Corridor. A large portion of the planet’s southern hemisphere was broken, revealing the vast yellow Sulfur Sea beneath. The planet’s northern hemisphere presented a purple hue when viewed from space, with long cracks that resembled vast rivers reaching up into it from where the crust disappeared to the south.
Despite the planet’s fragility, the northern hemisphere managed to cling to a thin, yet breathable atmosphere, making it capable of supporting life. However, water on Lola Sayu was scarce, and no indigenous life forms were known to exist on the planet. The planet’s remaining terrain was extremely treacherous and unpredictable, primarily consisting of mountains, hills, caves, crevasses, volcanoes and lava flows. Much of the roads wound close to the edge of the lava flows, and would often lead travellers to labyrinth-like cave systems or steep valleys.
