Manaan is an aquatic planet in the Pyrshak system. It is home to the Selkath, and is completely covered in water. Manaan is the only known source of the medicinal substance Kolto in the galaxy, a medical compound used to heal injuries. The only above-surface settlement on Manaan is the floating Ahto City, built above Hrakert Rift, an abundant source of Kolto.

In the years leading up to and during The Jedi Civil War, Kolto is so important to the galaxy that the Selkath are able to use their monopoly to enforce their policy of neutrality and autonomy. During The Jedi Civil War, both the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic work to get an upper hand in the war by creating secret deals that would give them more Kolto. Ultimately, however, the Selkath ban The Sith from Manaan for attempting to overthrow the government.
