Star Wars: Enemy of the Republic - Dark Side
Kessel is a planet located in the Kessel sector, in the Outer Rim Territories, near Hutt Space and the dangerous celestial bodies of the Maw. It is a prison world, and was home to the galaxy’s largest Glitterstim spice mining operation. Under Imperial rule, slave labor is in extensive use.
The misshapen, asteroid-shaped planet known has a barren, rocky landscape. The atmosphere is very thin, with most of the air being provided by factories on the surface. Ancient tombs and ruins, possibly of Sith origin, dot the landscape, haunted by skeletal avians. The prison was established in these inhospitable settings. There is a single large settlement on the planet, Kessendra.
