The Lannik star system is located in a region of the galaxy known as Eclorar, discovered by Humans and Duros explorers early in galactic history. The system has only two stellar bodies, the star itself and the planet with the same name. The system was plagued by anti-republic terrorists known as the Red Iaro in the recent past.
The Lannik star is a main sequence star of spectral type K (orange) and of luminosity class V. It has metallic lines in certain areas of its surface and some blue continuum. It has a density of 0.78 and a surface temperature of approximately 5000 Kelvin degrees. Like all K-V stars, they have great probabilities of having a planet with life in orbit because of their great stability and their lifespan of 15 to 30 billion years.
The planet is inhabited by a sentient race known as the Lannik, who are famous for their bellicose society. They were at first primitive, but the Duros and Humans brought technology to this backward world, speeding up their development. Due to this influence, most Lannik technology is derived from the technology of the Duros and Humans of that time. This surge of technology had some bad side effects, crime syndicates eventually took a solid foothold on Lannik and have been plaguing the system since then.
Among the mid-rim planets of that region of space, the planet Lannik had considerable natural resources and mineral wealth, which was mostly unexploited at the time of its discovery. Following this, many undesirable people came to the system and have since then made it a dangerous place.
