Dathomir is an obscure planet in The Outer Rim Territories, located in the Quelii Sector. It is somewhat smaller than Coruscant in size and thus a slightly-below-standard gravity. The planetary day is close to standard, though the planetary year is 491 days.
Dathomir is considered temperate and beautiful by Human standards, with a varied terrain that includes coastal lakes and tar-pits, thick forests and snow-capped mountain peaks, powerful rivers and broad savannas, small icecaps and dramatic rift valleys. Even under the New Republic, however, nine-tenths of the planet remain unexplored and uninhabited, with the population limited to a relatively small area along the edge of one of the three main continents, a zone of uplands and river plains bordered on one side by the unsailed ocean and on the other by vast expanses of desert.

|15||Dathomiri Rancors (Also known as Bull Rancors) are larger than off-world specimens, with full-grown adults in the range of eight to ten meters tall. This extreme size can in part be attributed to the planet's low gravity, which allow native trees to rise up to eighty meters tall, but it may also reflect a more general effect of the sheer vibrancy of the planet's biosphere.|
|20||The fact that the Dathomiri Rancors are semi-sentient often comes as a surprise to unsuspecting offworlders. It is not clear whether they have made any independent progress towards basic tokens of civilization like kindled fire or shaped tools, and their social system and lifestyle are little different from those of many nonsentient animals: matriarchal herds led by herd-mothers roam the landscape, hunting live prey for food.|
|25||Dathomiri Rancors pass on their clan histories from generation to generation, and when they formed a symbiont circle with the planet's Human population in the last centuries of The Galactic Republic, they adopt basic armor and weapons.|
|20||Dathomir is home to The Witches of Dathomir, the tribal matriarchal society of largely force-sensitive Humans.|
|25||A rogue Jedi Knight named Allya is remembered as single-handedly transforming Dathomiri society, credited with enslaving the entire male population under her leadership, turning the Dathomiri Rancors from predators to friends, pets, and war mounts, and codifying her teachings in the Book of Law.|
|30||Dathomir is originally the homeworld of the reptilian Kwa. By 100,000 BBY, the Kwa had built an Infinity Gate- the Prime Gate in a network of similar devices, used by them as a means of interstellar travel and as superweapons. The Infinity Gate was covered by massive pyramid-shaped structures known as the Star Temples, incorporating defensive systems to protect them from intruders. If the gate was ever activated, the planet housing the equipment could be collapsed into the Gate itself, along with the surrounding planets, moons, and even suns.|
