Planet: Polordio II
Table of Contents [hide]

Polordio II is a world of large rocky wastes interspersed with pockets of thick jungles and lush forests, locked between two massive stretches of frozen poles that together dominate nearly half of the planet. The towering ice shelves that loom over the frigid wastes of the poles have called into existence large flows of meltwater, which descend into the lower positioned masses of land as vast rivers that supply the jungles and forests with freshwater, enabling their existence and growth as a result. As the ecosystem of Polordio II is entirely dependent on the meltwater originating from the poles, its inhabitants have enacted strict environmental regulations so as to limit the potential damage of greenhouse gas emissions into the planet's atmosphere and the decline of the polar ice caps.

The planet was discovered a century before the period that would become known as the High Republic era, and was settled by colonists of various species originating from the overcrowded worlds of the Core during the height of the Republic's golden age. Members of the Jedi Order had even established their own temple outpost on the planet, which was eventually abandoned in the aftermath of a series of large-scale pirate attacks on the Outer Rim. The temple was later claimed by adherents of a Force-based religion that had developed on Polordio II, who saw the Light Side as a goddess eternally at war with an evil god who was embodied by the Dark Side. Since its colonisation, the development and urbanisation of the planet have been slow and have only really picked up the pace in recent times.

Today, many urban population centres dot the ragged rocky stretches that make up most of the planet's surface, and domed cities have even been erected in the less environmentally sensitive areas of the forests, jungles, and polar regions. Its citizens are of a diverse sort, with no one species having a defined majority in the makeup of this world's population. In other words, Polordio II can be considered a true cultural melting pot, where the practices and customs of several peoples have come together to form one Polordion culture and a society of openness and tolerance. It should therefore come as no surprise that during many of the galaxy's conflicts, the planet has served as a haven for refugees, both during the Clone Wars and the more recent Galactic Civil War.
