Description: Bogano was a grassy planet which was largely unexplored during the time of the Imperial Era and couldn't be found on any maps. Its surface was covered in mesas and wetlands. The planet was home to a great Vault built by the ancient Zeffo civilization. Bogano was important to the Zeffo due the presence of the Binog, a large creature important to Zeffo art and culture. Another reason for the Vault's location was theorized by Eno Cordova to be because of the light electromagnetic winds, although in much smaller conditions than Zeffo. At least one Zeffo Colony was located on Bogano likely as a pilgrimage site. The Vault hid away a holocron containing a list of Force-sensitive children in the galaxy, which was placed there by Jedi Master Eno Cordova. In 14 BBY, Cal Kestis was sent to the planet by Cere Junda to unlock the secrets of the Vault in hopes of rebuilding the Jedi Order.
Kestis eventually returned to the planet and used the Astrium, that he had acquired from Dathomir, to unlock the Bogano Vault. He was followed by the Second Sister who stole the holocron and escaped. Several squads of stormtroopers were defeated by Kestis on the planet, meaning that the Galactic Empire had found Bogano.
Bogano was a generally uninhabited world, and its nature was in turn relatively untouched. The world was primarily comprised of flat, grassy plains, broken up by massive ravines and sinkholes, with water-filled caves beneath the thin surface layer.
Points of Interest
The Abandoned Workshop was a workshop constructed by Jedi Master Eno Cordova on Bogano. Within the workshop, Cordova researched Zeffo technology. By the time of the Imperial Era, the workshop had been abandoned.
The Binog Mesa was a mesa on the planet Bogano. The binog, a large amphi-mammalian creature, was known to reside on the mesa.
The Bogano Vault, also known as the Ancient Vault, the Zeffo Vault, or simply the Vault, was a vault constructed by the Zeffo species on Bogano.
Built centuries before the Clone Wars, the Vault of Bogano was constructed out of karnite, a mineral rich stone mined from the planet's surface. The interior walls of the monolithic structure were decorated with inscriptions etched into the metallic plating which lined the walls. The Vaults interior was filled with ancient, fragile offering vessels, left by pilgrims in the distant past. The Vault was only accessible by Force-sensitives.
The Jedi Master Eno Cordova discovered the Vault while studying the Zeffo, who had long been extinct. Cordova later used the Vault to hide a holocron containing a list of Force-sensitive children in the event that the Jedi Order needed to be rebuilt. Several years after Order 66, Cere Junda brought former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis to the Vault, hoping to use the holocron to rebuild the Jedi Order.
Once Cal returned to the planet with the Astrium from Dathomir, he placed the astrium in the vault, causing him to see a vision of Padawans he was training. The Empire then attacked and Cal appeared to be an Inquisitor with the younglings being tortured to surrender. Cal awoke and grabbed the holocron only to see the Second Sister before him. They engaged in a duel with Cal eventually stealing her lightsaber. This caused him to have a echo of her past trauma. Trilla made off with the holocron leaving behind a detachment of stormtroopers to deal with Cal.
The Bogdo Sinkholes were an area of sinkholes on the planet Bogano. The Oggdo Bogdo, a rare subspecies of the oggdo creature, could be found inside the Bogdo Sinkholes.
The Fractured Plain was an area of plains on the planet Bogano, broken up by chasms and cliffsides. When visiting Bogano as part of their quest to rebuild the Jedi Order, Cere Junda and Cal Kestis landed on the Fractured Plain in the Stinger Mantis.
The Great Divide was a chasm located within the plains of the planet Bogano, near the Bogano Vault.
The Hermit's Abode was a residence located on the planet Bogano, beside the Fractured Plain. The interior of the residence was located within a cavern. The Jedi Master Eno Cordova lived in the Hermit's Abode while researching the ancient Zeffo on Bogano.
The Subterranean Refuge was an area of caves on the planet Bogano, located beneath the Binog Mesa. Bog rats could be found inside the Subterranean Refuge.
