"This system is haunted, cursed, whatever. Anyway, Jedi or not, no one gets off this rock alive, not past Drol."
Jaybo Hood, to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker[src]

Iego was a mysterious planet in Separatist-controlled space that had a thousand moons.

Description

"Jaybo Hood: "Follow the vines to the bottom, dig up the roots, but don't touch the vine."

Obi-Wan Kenobi: "Aside from the obvious, why not?" Jaybo Hood: "Because the plant don't like it, and they have big, sharp teeth." Anakin Skywalker: "Teeth? This is getting better by the minute." Jaybo Hood: And watch out for the flying xandu."

Jaybo Hood, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker discuss the dangers of Iego[src]
A planet located on the fringes of the Outer Rim, its desert surface is covered with basaltic spires and canyons which are home to reeska, large carnivorous plants whose roots are used to create the only known cure for the deadly Blue Shadow Virus, and are inhabited by flying four-winged xandu. Iego is surrounded by a 1000 moons and at least one of these, named Millius Prime, is home to a race called the Angels.

History

During the Clone Wars, the Separatists invaded the planet and established battle droid garrisons, intending to use Iego as a redoubt should their war go against them.They eventually abandoned the planet, but before leaving, they installed an orbital security system that destroyed any ship trying to leave the system. The inhabitants of the planet believed the amount of casualties in orbit was because of the wrath of "Drol", a destructive spirit that would allow nobody to leave the planet. Jaybo Hood, a ten year old prodigy, made use of the battle droids left on the planet and reassigned them to his personal commands.

When Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived on the planet to collect a reeksa root necessary to create an antidote to the Blue Shadow Virus, the locals told them about the myth of Drol. The Jedi soon discovered that it was actually a laser security system that went off whenever a ship passed through the area. They destroyed it with Jaybo's vulture droids, bringing freedom to Iego.
