- "Your planet—your home—is being drowned in blood! For three thousand years we were loyal to the Republic… and where did that get us in our hour of need? Nowhere! And now it is it's inheritor—the New Republic—that ignored our cries for help—until they learned that beneath all the mud—our planet has a heart of ore!"
- ―Alto Stratus
Jabiim (pronounced /dʒə'bi:m/) was a small, muddy, Outer Rim world. It was most notably the site of two fierce Battles of Jabiim.
Originally known as Gwynhes Minor, the planet was absorbed into Xim's empire as he expanded his borders from the Kingdom of Cron. Jabiim would later join the Galactic Republic in 3,000 BBY, millennia following the fall of Xim's Empire. The planet had paid its dues to Coruscant, but was undefended when tragedy befell the planet. The planet suffered from an outbreak of brainrot plague, which slammed the population of Jabiim.
Galactic Civil WarEdit
Yuuzhan Vong WarEdit
Prior to the Yuuzhan Vong War, Trandoshan bandits attacked and conquered Jabiim's lands. After the bandits moved on, Lythian Pirates attacked the world, seizing small communities and killing many. Despite requesting aid from the New Republic, Jabiim received no help from them in any of these cases. Because of the lack of assistance from the New Republic, the Jabiim Congress sided with Count Dooku's growing Confederacy of Independent Systems. New Republic agents on Jabiim informed the New Galactic Senate that the Congress had been undermined by Confederate influences.
Negotiations spearheaded by the Alderaanian Diplomatic Corps were rebuffed as Jabiim geared towards war. Jabiim was a planet that was rich in valuable ores. None of these ores could fall to the Confederacy of Independent Systems as they were rumored to join the Peace Brigade, a faction allied with the invaders. Rather than lose Jabiim and its valuable mines, the New Republic decided to retake the world by force. The New Republic positioned their strike force on nearby Handooine. General Owen Kenobi was chosen to lead the attack.
