Background: Wobani was a temperate planet partially hidden by a swirling dust cloud in the Wobani system, in the Bryx sector of the galaxy’s Mid Rim. During the Imperial Era, the planet was used by the Galactic Empire as a site for labor and prison camps.

Wobani was covered in a thick cloud of space dust that rarely provided a glimpse through the atmosphere. Wobani’s canyons were home to Imperial Detention Center & Labor Camp LEG-817.

When Princess Leia Organa was sixteen, she went on a humanitarian mission to Wobani as part of her Challenge of the Heart to provide the people there with supplies. Upon arriving, she realized how terrible the natives were being treated and decided to take as many refugees back to Alderaan as possible. She could trick the Imperial officer, Major Tedam, in charge of Wobani, by hiring several Wobani citizens to work aboard her ship, rescuing 100 refugees. These refugees were then taken to Alderaan, where they could choose to stay or live on other planets, all at the expense of the royal family. Unbeknownst to the princess at the time, however, in doing this, she had undermined negotiations her father, Bail Organa, Senator Mon Mothma, and some of his other allies in the Imperial Senate had been in for resettlement of the Wobani population for months. Due to the princess’s actions, the deal could no longer happen as everyone with authority over Wobani was embarrassed, angry, and unwilling to bargain.

Wobani continued to deteriorate under Imperial rule until the Empire used the planet only as a site for manual labor and prisoners. Shortly before stealing the plans for the Death Star, Jyn Erso was held in an Imperial labor camp on Wobani for six months until being broken out by Extraction Team Bravo of the Rebel Alliance.
