Description: Hypori was a planet located in the Ferra sector of the Outer Rim Territories notable for being a heavy battle droid producer during the Clone Wars.

Geography
Hypori was a planet located in the Ferra sector of the Outer Rim Territories. It was a temperate world of small oceans and rocky landscapes, rich with minerals. The planet had no intelligent life.

History
Hypori was the site of a battle during the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Imperial forces attacked the prototype "Gilded Meteor" bomber on its maiden voyage above the planet.

Sith training ground
In the last decades of the Republic, Hypori belonged to the Techno Union. Its foreman, Wat Tambor, agreed to supply the planet as a training ground for Damask Holdings and its Echani Sun Guard, providing the necessary battle droids, in exchange for Tambor's seat in the Galactic Senate.

In 54 BBY, the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Plagueis trained his apprentice Darth Sidious on Hypori with assassin droids.

In 37 BBY, during Darth Maul's training under the command of Darth Sidious, the Nightbrother spent a month on the planet without food or water and with a horde of assassin droids as his opponents. Sidious returned to fight against Maul, easily besting his exhausted, injured apprentice and depriving him of his lightsaber. Enraged, Maul continued to attack Sidious with his fists and teeth. Pleased, Sidious appraised him for passing the final test, and Maul was given the title of Sith Lord, secretly against Darth Plagueis' wishes.

Clone Wars
Following the Invasion of Naboo, Hypori and the nearby planet Geonosis were transformed into a secret foundry world for the Trade Federation. An entire hive of Geonosian workers was relocated to Hypori in a sponsored effort by Baktoid Armor Workshop to construct and maintain the new Separatist droid factories. The tough bedrock and soil proved difficult to assimilate into a true and proper hive-mound, though the Geonosian workers eventually created huge underground factories. The existence of these droid factories was kept secret from the Galactic Republic during the lead-up to the Clone Wars.

Shortly after the onset of the Clone Wars, Jedi Master Daakman Barrek and his Padawan, Sha'a Gi, uncovered the Separatist operations on Hypori during an intelligence-gathering mission in the sector. They reported back to the Jedi High Council on Coruscant, which dispatched a Jedi and clone trooper strike team to investigate further.

Unfortunately for the Republic forces, the Separatists had not left Hypori undefended. Disguised mines seeded in orbit crippled much of the task force. The surviving Jedi—among them Ki-Adi-Mundi, Shaak Ti, K'Kruhk, Tarr Seirr, Sha'a Gi, and Aayla Secura—were ambushed by legions of B2 super battle droids and OG-9 homing spider droids led by General Grievous. The ruined hulk of an Acclamator-class assault ship that had crashed into Hypori's surface became the site of an epic battle between the droid commander and the Jedi, from which only four Jedi emerged alive, with the help of ARC Captain Fordo and the Muunilinst 10. Though some of the battle droids were destroyed during the rescue attempt, the droid factories on Hypori remained in operation during the war. At least one remained operational after the end of the Clone Wars, after Darth Vader ordered the deactivation of the Separatist droid armies from Mustafar in 19 BBY.

Galactic Civil War
The planet was abandoned until the Hutt Cartel learned of the existence of a droid factory that had survived the Clone Wars. They lured the Zann Consortium to the planet's surface, hoping that Tyber Zann's army would deactivate the hostile droideka Mark IIs, thus ensuring that Jabba the Hutt's forces could land and gain control of the planet—in the process killing Zann himself. However, the plan backfired, and cost Jabba greatly. The Consortium then used the technology on this planet to produce droideka Mark IIs. In the aftermath, Jabba and Zann agreed to a ceasefire.

Places of Interest

Hypori droid factory
This droid factory was one of many droid factories owned and operated by the Confederacy of Independent Systems on Hypori, producing thousands of battle droids for their war against the Republic.

The factory was discovered by Jedi Master Daakman Barrek and his Padawan Sha'a Gi, ensuing in the Battle of Hypori. This particular droid factory somehow survived the deactivation of the Separatist Droid Army by the Sith Lord Darth Vader in 19 BBY.

During the Galactic Civil War, the Hutt Cartel took an interest in this factory, and Jabba the Hutt hoped to use it to destroy Tyber Zann and his army. However, his plan was a failure due to Zann's tenacity. After that, Tyber would use Hypori's resources to produce droideka Mark IIs, powerful droids that would be used to spread his corruption across the galaxy.
