Description: Eadu (pronounced /ˈiːduː/) was a storm-stricken planet in the Outer Rim Territories. It hosted the Eadu Energy Conversion Laboratory prior to the outbreak of the Galactic Civil War, where Galen Erso and his team of scientists attempted to unlock the secrets of the kyber crystals as part of the Death Star project. The refinery was targeted by agents of the Alliance to Restore the Republic following the destruction of Jedha City and resulted in the ruination of the facility and the death of Erso.

Eadu was a remote, rugged, mountainous planet was located in the Eadu system of the Outer Rim Territories' Bheriz sector. It was solidly within Hutt Space along the Triellus Trade Route and lay on the edge of the known galaxy. The blue-hued world was shrouded in gloomy rainstorms, wind, and lightning strikes. The planet's cloud cover was so thick that it appeared to be a night world even in daytime, and clouds mired visibility while gales battered any starships attempting to reach the surface. It comprised difficult, rainswept terrain which afforded the planet natural defenses, although the southern hemisphere also contained an Eaduan village cluster populated by nerf herders. The ground was uneven and was made up of jagged rock formations, broad mesas, black stone ridges, and narrow spires. The rocky canyons bottomed out in dozens of writhing streambeds. The planet's rain had the smell of fecund soil with an undertone of acrid stink.

Eadu was little-known save for its rainfall and population of native nerf herders. During the Age of the Empire, Eadu was owned by Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, and ceded to his eponymous Tarkin Initiative as part of the ongoing Death Star project begun prior to the onset of the Clone Wars. The Galactic Empire established a secret high energy conversion laboratory within the remote mountaintops of Eadu's northern hemisphere. This refinery, defended by the Eadu Flight Station, was administered by Sirro Argonne and guarded by stormtroopers of the 975th Battalion. Captain Magna Tolvan was responsible for security on Eadu. Director Orson Callan Krennic put Galen Walton Erso to work on unlocking the secrets of the kyber crystals within the secret installation. To this end, Erso led a team of scientists who conducted dynamic kyber field experiments south of their facility. The world was considered strategically insignificant due to communications blackouts, which made an analysis of the world difficult and was officially designated by the Empire for research and chemical processing. Individuals such as Cassian Jeron Andor considered it to be a sodden lump of a planet. However, the Empire created its final, functional superlaser on Eadu, and transported it to the Death Star to make the battle station fully operational.

In 0 BBY, Erso sent out pilot Bodhi Rook with a message for Saw Gerrera, informing him of a structural weakness in the Death Star. Krennic learned of the security leak and ventured to Eadu to deal with the Imperial traitor. At the same time, a team of Rebel agents led by Jyn Erso and Captain Cassian Jeron Andor arrived on Eadu with the intention of locating Erso. The mission became complicated after Krennic had Erso's fellow scientists shot in order to draw out a confession, and Rebel starfighters bombed the Eadu complex landing platform. This resulted in Galen's death and led Jyn's team on a further mission to steal the Death Star plans from Scarif. Because of the security breach, Tolvan was later sent to Yavin 4 following the destruction of the Death Star, as a punishment duty for the Eadu debacle.

Eadu had a relatively small planetary population estimated at two-point-five million, which included native Eaduans such as the nerf herders living in a village cluster in the southern hemisphere. These individuals were among the only features of Eadu known to the wider galaxy. It was the homeworld of Kris Elioup.

Places of Interest
Eadu Energy Conversion Laboratory
The Eadu Energy Conversion Laboratory, also known as the Tarkin Initiative R&D base, Tarkin Initiative laboratory, Imperial kyber refinery or the Laboratory of Conception and Implementation of the High Energies, was a secluded Imperial research and development facility located on the planet Eadu. Guarded by the 975th Battalion, the installation was where the development research was done for the Death Star's superlaser under the direction of Galen Erso as part of the Tarkin Initiative. A team of scientists at the complex undertook two interconnected projects: the fusing of kyber crystal shards into larger forms and the creation and redirection of a controlled chain reaction. Attached to the facility was a single-barrel defensive turbolaser cannon and a shuttle station where cargo shuttles delivered crystals for the team in specialized containers.

During Operation Fracture in 0 BBY, a Rebel squad consisting of Captain Cassian Andor, Jyn Erso, K-2SO, Bodhi Rook, Baze Malbus, and Chirrut Îmwe traveled to the facility in a UT-60D U-wing starfighter/support craft to find Galen Erso. Director Orson Krennic arrived shortly after the Rebels in his Imperial shuttle to investigate suspicions of a Rebel sympathizer within the scientific ranks. After Erso revealed himself as the traitor, Krennic had Erso's team executed by death troopers. The complex was then attacked by rebel starfighters, consisting of T-65B X-wing starfighters and BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bombers from Blue Squadron. In response, the base's defensive cannon and TIE/ln space superiority starfighters were dispatched to counter the threat, only to be overwhelmed by the Alliance as Îmwe led to the turbolaser's destruction, allowing for the Rebel strike team's success. Ultimately, an alliance torpedo brought severe damages to Director Krennic's landing platform, killing several stormtroopers and mortally wounding Galen Erso, who conversed with his daughter before the remaining Rebels fled from the planet.

Eadu Flight Station
Eadu Flight Station was a shuttle depot located at the Eadu Energy Conversion Laboratory on the planet Eadu during the Age of the Empire.

On the main landing pad for the flight station, four large spotlights lit up space where at least 5 Zeta Class cargo shuttles could be landed.

During 0 BBY, Bodhi Rook, an Imperial pilot who defected from this facility and reprogrammed KX series Imperial security droid, K-2SO, stole shuttle SW-0608 from this facility, a Zeta class cargo transport, later using it to infiltrate the Imperial shield gate at Scarif.
