Description: Ashas Ree was a forested planet in the Outer Rim. Its sole inhabited trading outpost was situated next to a Jedi temple that had been built to seal the power of a Sith temple beneath it. During the war between the First Order and the Resistance, traveller Mika Grey came to Ashas Ree seeking a relic hidden in the Sith temple, intending to keep it out of the First Order's hands, but became trapped inside the temple as a result until being released by Colossus resistance members Kazuda Xiono, CB-23, Eila and Kel two days later.
Ashas Ree was covered in forests, with the planet appearing green from space. Known fauna included the parvinoths, a species of bioluminescent insects, which were seen flying around the trading outpost.
Ashas Ree had an ancient and dark history, having once been ruled by the Sith. Long before the First Orderâ€“Resistance war, they built a temple on Ashas Ree. At the heart of the temple was left a relic that could be used as a source of considerable power. The relic was guarded by a series of traps which made traversing the temple a dangerous prospect. Eventually, the Jedi buried the Sith temple and constructed a temple of their own, the Temple of the Force, atop it to seal its dark power. The temple eventually fell into disuse by the Jedi, and consequently also fell into a state of disrepair.
By the time of the cold war between the First Order and Resistance, Ashas Ree hosted a remote trading outpost adjacent to the Jedi temple, the only civilization on the entire planet. Mika Grey, a traveller searching for Sith artifacts to keep them out of the First Order's hands, came to the outpost in search of the relic hidden in the Sith temple, and managed to excavate the structure, causing it to rise from underground for the first time in a long time. The outpost's residents, aware of legends about the buried evil, fled, leaving behind written warnings in the village advising any visitors to flee. When Grey found the artifact, however, she became trapped in an underground chamber when she touched it and accidentally triggered a trapdoor.
Two days afterwards, the Colossus, a mobile supertanker fuel depot fleeing the First Order, passed by Ashas Ree. In need of supplies, Captain Imanuel Doza dispatched Ace Squadron members Freya Fenris, Torra Doza and Kazuda Xiono, along with their astromech droids, down to the trading outpost. Kel and Eila, two child survivors of a First Order atrocity, persuaded Xiono to sneak them along in his shuttle as they were tired of being cooped up on the station. Upon landing and discovering the outpost to be deserted, Fenris ordered the pilots to split up and begin collecting supplies. However, Xiono wound up distracted trying to prevent Kel and Eila from exploring, and the two found their way to the Jedi and Sith temples, where the children, Xiono and droid CB-23 heard Grey's cries for help from inside.
Descending into the Sith temple, Xiono and the children were quickly separated by a door triggered by one of the booby traps. As Kel and Eila became lost in the corridors, CB-23 led Xiono to the central chamber containing the relic. Xiono, dazed after being shocked by another pressure plate trap, ignored Grey's warnings and touched the relic, becoming trapped with her. He ordered CB-23 to find the children, after which Grey questioned him as to whether he worked for the First Order. Kel and Eila arrived in the central chamber in time to save Grey and Xiono after the latter accidentally activated another trap that caused the lower chamber to become a centrifuge with a gear mechanism that nearly killed them. After being released, Grey carefully retrieved the relic, but then had to hurriedly flee the temple with the others after Xiono accidentally pressed a Sith glyph that caused the structure to collapse.
In the outpost, Fenris, Torra and their droids had finished loading supplies into the shuttle when they realized other ships were approaching. The ships belonged to the squad of First Order Raiders led by Agent Raith, which had been tracking Grey and the artifact she sought for some time. When Xiono, Grey, CB-23 and the children emerged from the temple, they saw the enemies. Grey attempted to lead the others to her ship, but it was blown up by Raider troopers. She managed to slip away as Xiono, CB-23 and the children were caught and rounded up with the others, before revealing herself and saving the others by activating the relic, which the Raiders attempted to deactivate as their erstwhile prisoners fled. The activation of the relic killed the Raiders and drained its power, rendering it worthless. Having lost her transportation, Grey accepted an offer to come to the Colossus.
Ashas Ree was sparsely populated, with the trading outpost being its only population centre. The entire population of the outpost fled after Grey raised the Sith temple, frightened of its dark power.
The trading outpost was the only populated place on Ashas Ree. It was situated right next to the Jedi temple that had been built to seal off the ancient Sith temple. Although the Jedi temple was known to the residents of the outpost, the Sith temple was the subject of dark legends, so when it was raised by Mika Grey, the outpost's inhabitants fled.
Ashas Ree Temple of the Force
The Ashas Ree Temple of the Force was a Jedi temple located on the planet Ashas Ree. It had been built atop a Sith Temple in an attempt to contain and suppress the dark power located inside it. Eventually, by the time of the war between the First Order and the Resistance, the temple had fallen into some disrepair, and a trading outpost had sprung up situated next to it.
Sith Temple (Ashas Ree)
A Sith Temple was located on the planet Ashas Ree. It contained a relic that served as an immense power source. The relic was guarded by a heavy number of traps throughout the Sith temple, activated by pressure plates in the floor as well as touching the relic itself. Eventually, the temple was buried and a Jedi temple was constructed atop it in an effort to seal the temple's dark power.
Although the temple was long buried, residents of the trading outpost nearby were aware of rumors and legends about it, and in 34 ABY, the outpost's residents fled when the temple was unearthed by Mika Grey, who was attempting to retrieve the relic inside before the First Order could find it. Grey was trapped inside the temple by one of its traps, until being discovered and released by Colossus residents Kazuda Xiono, Eila, Kel and CB-23 a few days later. The temple was then destroyed when Xiono accidentally activated a Sith glyph that caused it to collapse.
Unidentified trading outpost
This trading outpost was the only populated location on the planet Ashas Ree. It was situated next to a Jedi temple of the Force. When the ancient Sith temple that had been buried beneath the Jedi temple was raised by Mika Grey, the outpost's population fled, leaving behind messages warning visitors to beware of the ancient evil. The messages were discovered by Torra Doza, Freya Fenris and Kazuda Xiono of the Colossus, who had visited in search of supplies for the station.
