"I am sending you to the Mustafar system in the Outer Rim. It is a volcanic planet. You will be safe there."
General Grievous to the Separatist Council

Mustafar was a small planet located in the Mustafar system of the Outer Rim Territories, coreward of Rutan, between the Hydian Way and the Ninth Quadrant.

The tiny world of Mustafar was a fiery volcanic world where lava was mined like a precious natural resource. It was on this very planet that Darth Maul began his Sith training. It was also the last capital of the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the site of their downfall, an event that shaped galactic history. It was the site of a climactic duel in which Darth Vader dueled his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and was forced to wear dark armor for the rest of his life.

Mustafar was a very young and volatile world, torn apart by opposing gravitational forces of the gas giants Jestefad and Lefrani, with the former being the closer of the two. Astride thick-skinned lava fleas, the natives leapt across the lava fields to mine the planet's deadly natural resources. Mustafarians oversaw the smelting facilities constructed by the Separatists on Mustafar.



"It's obvious that civilizations have been present here for thousands of years. Strangely enough though, apart from the last few hundred years, there are no records at all of who was here or where they are now."
―Epo Qetora

Imperial era

After the destruction of the Separatist Council and the Imperialization of the Techno Union, Mustafar was largely forgotten, until a Separatist stalwart, the fugitive Geonosian Gizor Dellso, holed up on Mustafar during the early days of the Galactic Empire and re-activated an independent battle droid factory, intending to rebuild the Confederacy's previous military strength. In 12 BBY, he constructed a small droid army and a flotilla of warships above the planet, and got the support of several fellow Geonosians. One year later, the situation had been required by the attention of the loyal 501st Legion of stormtroopers to storm the planet. At the battle's end, with the droid schematics destroyed and Dellso eliminated, the base was annihilated in a massive orbital strike from Imperial I-class Star Destroyers, which resulted in the fall of the Geonosian Industries, along with the fragmentation of the Separatist holdouts.


Mustafar attracted interest from both the Tempest Project of the Rebel Alliance and Cizerack for its resources. In the end, a contract was hammered out between the two groups to where the Alliance would take possession of the planet in exchange for supplying refined ore to the Cizeracks. After making contact with the native Mustafarians and selecting an ambassador from amongst them, Alliance personnel got right to work building droid factories. These factories produced droids that built more droid factories who built other factories and so on. As of 9 ABY over one million droids of all shapes and sizes inhabit Mustafar with tens of thousands of factories, the rapid reindustrialzation of the planet spawning an oversupply of materials as the orbital spacedocks and transport capacity struggled to catch up.

Four massive shipyards have been built in orbit for the Alliance, named Anton, Bruno, Caesar, and Dora. These four shipyards are protected by a pair of massive and experimental battlestations, the Golan V Battleplatforms Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. Tempest Base itself, a hollowed out asteroid that used to be located around a dead radioactive world has since been moved to orbit Mustafar, giving the planet in effect its first moon.
