The only planet in the Dressel system, Dressel is one of the more idyllic planets in the galaxy. Its lush forests and prairies give the planet a soothing feel and keep the air temperature at quite a pleasant level all year round. The pristine wilderness allowed a wide variety of fauna and flora to flourish, including the planet's only indigenous sentient species, the Dressellians.
The planet was originally discovered by the Bothan Askarr clan, who decided to leave the Dressellians alone. With many small settlements, the Dressellians were never taken seriously by the rest of the galaxy as they were believed to be a primitive, undeveloped race. Only the Jedi scouts who came to the planet centuries ago saw the great potential in the Dressellians and the Dressellians bestowed great honor upon them. They followed the Jedi into larger galactic affairs and the Dressellians that were later trained to be Jedi were known for their proficiency with the Force.
