- List of Star Wars planets (E-G)
Ealor is a planet in the Bysis system. It is home to the graivehs, and covered with
grasslands and temperate forests.
Elom is home to Eloms and the Elomin. For centuries, the two species lived unknown to one another, with Eloms living deep underground to access the planet's natural springs, and the Elomin living a technologically advanced life on the surface.
Eloms are primitive and peaceful, and evolved on the surface in times long passed. Only later did they adapt to subterranean life, evolving larger claws for digging and acquiring an extreme sensitivity to bright light. They live in communities called cseria, annually meeting to solve problems and to trade goods.
The Elomin became aware of Eloms during an expedition inside the caves of the A'driannamieq Mountains. Due to the rigid perceptions of order and structure in the Elomin world, they found the concept of underground Eloms difficult to grasp. Accordingly, the mountain explorers never reported to their findings to the Elomin Council.
When Elom became part of the Galactic Republic, a lucrative trading deal was struck with the Elomin, with precious lommite ore from the planet's crust being exported from the planet. A cave-in during the mining operation revealed the Elom civilization again to the Elomin, and the Republic began to investigate, finding Eloms to be sentient and giving them land-rights over an area of the planet. The Elomin began a resource-sharing program with their newly discovered co-habitors, although they were hesitant in entering such a deal with a culture they found so strange and alien. The Eloms, for their part, were content to persist in their subterranean existence.
When the Empire assumed control over the planet, the Elomin were forced into slavery and Eloms' land ownership was revoked. Most Eloms sought an existence even deeper underground, but occasionally young Eloms would journey up to free Elomin slaves using "mining accidents", despite the disapproving sentiment among the Elom elders.
Eloms rarely journey off the planet Elom, and those who do show sociopathic streaks in their personalities, possibly because of their separation from their native environment.
Elrood is a primary planet in the Elrood System near the Rimma Trade Route. It has two moons, Sharene and Lodos.

Empress Teta is the primary world of the Empress Teta System. It was renamed in the honor of Empress Teta, who was the ruler of the planet; in 5,000 BBY she unified all the planets in the system. Since the capital city of
Cinnagarcovers more than half the planet, the planet itself is also often referred to as Cinnagar.

Sith Empirein what came to be known as the Great Hyperspace War. Years later, the Krath Aleema and Setal Ketolived on Empress Teta and used it as their base.
