Star Wars: The Last Hope
Dantooine (pronounced /‘dæntuin/) was a pleasant world of grasslands, rivers and lakes. The planet was located in the Raioballo sector of the Outer Rim at an endpoint of Myto’s Arrow, the other endpoint of which was in the Obtrexta sector, though Dantooine itself was still far removed from most galactic traffic. It hosted a small population spread amongst single-family settlements and small communities with large land holdings. Its sentient population consisted primarily of simple Human farmers, though Dantooine was also home to the primitive Dantari race. Native wildlife included the kath hound, the iriaz, the kinrath, and the graul.
An ancient abandoned Jedi temple was located here and was used by Rahm Kota to train the group of force sensitives that he gathered together. When his trainees were formed into a special operations team for the Alliance the temple acted as their base of operations.
Soon after the official formation of the rebel Alliance the first official operational headquarters of the rebellion was established here.
