Astronomers across the galaxy agree that the history of Lors is almost as dramatic as a holovid. Early on in its life, Lors was a hot and arid planet with a thick atmosphere that trapped all of the heat from the sun close to the planet's surface. The scientists were not surprised to find no signs of life on this planet. A few million years ago, an enormous meteorite crossed the path of the planet orbit, slamming into the planet surface. The contact was most breathtaking, with the impact blowing the atmosphere and cracking tectonic plates. Lava from under the planet crust flowed onto the surface. The large amounts of dust from the impact are still around today, in the form of a faint ring around the planet.
As the ancient Duros looked into the beautiful night skies, they often referred to the planet Lors as the place evil-doers go when they die. Even with the long distances away, the naked eye from Duros sees the harsh and scorching climate of the surface. This planet hosts no life as it contains no water. There may be forms of moisture with the hypothesis that the atmosphere was one present and thick, though the meteorite impact had long since driven the water away from this planet. The meteorite, in a small fraction of its former glorious self, can still be seen half-buried in a crater in the southern hemisphere. The meteorite itself contains a large content of iron ore, which is absent from the original planet component, therefore confirming that this large piece of rock is of a foreign origin.
Obeying the mythology that Lors is the place where evil-doers go, Duros of today still sent its most vicious captured criminals here. The last Duro to be sent here was a serial murderer by the name of Huoro of the Lunko Clan. As committing his ninth murder, the over-confident criminal bragged openly at spaceports about his crime; he was captured and sentenced to a life in exile on Lors. An exile means certain death as even a temperature suit would not last more than a few days, let alone the fact that there is no water on this planet.
