Background: Lothal re-settlement camp 43, commonly known as Tarkintown, was a small settlement built on the planet Lothal during the reign of the Galactic Empire. The town was inhabited by farmers who had been dispossessed by the Empire and were left impoverished. The crew of the starship Ghost visited the town and distributed food stolen from the Empire to the inhabitants.

Tarkintown consisted of a loose collection of a few dozen buildings constructed on the plains of the planet Lothal. Several moisture vaporators were dotted throughout the settlement, and a clear central area acted as a town square.

Tarkintown was home to impoverished farmers of many species whose homes, such as in Tangletown, had been taken by the Galactic Empire when it needed the land they were built on. Anyone who attempted to fight back was arrested for treason, and the rest were left with nothing. The residents named their settlement after Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, the Imperial in control of the Outer Rim Territories and the man responsible for the dispossession of the farmers.

The crew of the VCX-100 light freighter Ghost took pity on the town’s residents, and three members of the crew, Sabine Wren, Garazeb Orrelios, and Ezra Bridger, brought them three crates of food that they had taken from Imperials in Capital City. The group opened the crates in the center of the settlement and called out to the residents to take the food, which the farmers did gratefully. Tarkintown was destroyed at the behest of Darth Vader and ISB Agent Kallus to punish its inhabitants for receiving aid from the Specters during the Siege of Lothal. The inhabitants were forcibly relocated to a detention camp.
