Description: Vandelhelm was a planet located in the Vandelhelm system, inside of the Vandelhelm Cloud within the Expansion Region. It was known for its starshipwrights, and manufacturing capabilities.

Even though it was located along the Rimma Trade Route, it was not discovered by the Republic until 3053 BBY due to the planet being obscured from sensors by the Vandelhelm Cloud. Eventually two independent prospectors Vandel and Helm braved the cloud looking for rich minerals and metals. Having found the planet to be rich in ores, Vandel and Helm settled the planet with their families, now named "Vandelhelm", and after making finds on its surface, they used the profits to form the first Metalsmiths Guild.

During the Clone Wars the planet lay within Separatist space.

Vandelhelm Cloud

The Vandelhelm Cloud was a vast asteroid field that encompassed the Vandelhelm system. The Vandelhelm Cloud made it impossible for the planet of Vandelhelm to be located on sensors, and due to its density, also hindered space travel to all but the smallest starships.

Metalsmiths Guild

The Metalsmiths Guild was a group of individuals who possessed knowledge of Vandelhelm's reputed alloy-making. They were caught up in the Galactic Civil War at some point and eventually sided with the Alliance of Free Planets thanks to the efforts of Han Solo and Lando Calrissian.

Venerated Ones

The Venerated Ones were descendants of the original discoverers and colonizers of the planet of Vandelhelm. They held great cultural significance among the citizens of that planet. During the Galactic Civil War, two of them (Lillindri Nanimei Filda Vandelhelm XXXII and Endrodanar Tiopuld Shaamador Vandelhelm XXIV) were placed in jeopardy by an Imperial plot. They were rescued by the Rebel hero Han Solo. This act of kindness then led to Vandelhelm continuing to supply the Rebel forces.
