Description: Mapuzo was a Galactic Empireâ€“controlled mining planet located in the Mid Rim Territories. The planet was once lush and full of life, but had been rendered a wasteland due to the Empire's mining activity. After rescuing Princess Leia Organa, Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi was able to escape the planet Daiyu by hiding on a transport that was traveling to Mapuzo.
The Empire's Inquisitorius was able to track Kenobi to Mapuzo. Three of their numberâ€”the Fifth Brother, the Third Sister, and the Fourth Sister, accompanied by Sith Lord Darth Vaderâ€”traveled to the planet in search of Kenobi.
