Ord Mantell was a planet located in the Bright Jewel system of the galaxy's Mid Rim that was the homeworld of the Mantellian Savrip species. In the waning days of the Galactic Republic, Ord Mantell City housed a base of operations for the Black Sun crime syndicate. It later came under control of the Galactic Empire and became home to an Imperial deepdock.

Ord Mantell itself was orbited by at least three moons, one of which was known as Quantxi, or the "Junk Moon of Ord Mantell." The planet's thick clouds glowed with a pink cast when viewed from space and every landmass was dotted with mountain chains.
In the waning days of the Galactic Republic, Ord Mantell City housed a base of operations for the Black Sun crime syndicate.
