Taris was a world in the Outer Rim Territories.
At some point the planet was devastated, with the result being the landscape littered with starship wrecks and ruined buildings. The planet remained heavily urbanized, but many inhabitants lived in makeshift shelters.
After the Battle of Endor, a group of cultists called the Acolytes of the Beyond came to Taris looking for Darth Vader's Lightsaber. They met with the Kubaz trader Ooblamon who turned over what he claimed to be the weapon and was paid for the artifact.
