Star Wars: Order 65
Tatooine (pronounced tætu’in) was a desert world in a binary star system in the Arkanis sector of the Outer Rim Territories. It was inhabited by poor locals who mostly farmed moisture for a living. Other activities included used equipment retailing and scrap dealing. The planet was on the 5709-DC Shipping Lane, a spur of the Triellus Trade Route, which itself connected to the Sisar Run. The planet was not far from the Corellian Run. It had its own navigation system. However, it would still play a role in galactic events, serving as the home of Anakin Skywalker. It was here that Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn recognized Anakin’s potential to become a Jedi and would serve as Anakin’s future master and mentor.
The planet built up a very bad reputation, often being viewed as the cesspool of the galaxy due to the high-level of criminals who could be found onworld. The planet’s darkest event in recent history was at the end of the Clone Wars, when the newly-appointed Chancellor Padme Amidala was assasinated along with her protector Anakin Skywalker during a cease-fire summit with Count Dooku and Qui-Gon Jinn. Master Kenobi personally killed the former Jedi Masters and burned their bodies at an undisclosed location in a system between Tatooine and Coruscant.
