The settlement of Dbari IV was originally financed by a group who branded themselves the Degan Corporation. What their intention was for the planet is unknown since no record of them or their settlers exists outside of the remains of their one and only colony. The ruins are fascinating to foreigners since, at some point after its construction, the entire settlement was painted blue. What implements were left behind by the inhabitants also suggest that everything they wore and the tools they used were painted or colored in the same fashion. Anthropologists have tended to believe the inexplicable fascination with a single color was fueled by superstition, though the society was sufficiently advanced technologically. There is even evidence in samples taken from hewn stone alcoves, that the settlers also left offerings and made sacrifices at the mouth of the nearby caves.
While new inhabitants are wary about building near the ruins, a more recent civilization, renowned for its textiles and judicial system, thrives on the diverse planet. The heart of this society lies on the Jobel Peninsula which is a low-lying landmass extending into the warm ocean waters. Shield technology is used to create seawalls that hold back the tide and protect the capital city of Thedus from powerful hurricanes which form nine months out of the fifteen month year.
