Lannik is found near the border between the Mid Rim and the Outer Rim Territories. It is a habitable planet with enormous unspoiled jungles and many unexploited natural resources. Among the native fauna, the flejj beast is noted. Apart from this predator, Lannik has bred other species, including sentient humanoid creatures called the Lannik. The planet, and its sentient inhabitants, was discovered not too long ago by Duro colonists, which brought developed technology to the Lanniks. The discussions between the Lannik authorities on what to trade in exchange for this technology opened the planet to pirates and finally caused the Old Republic to restrict the amount of technology exported to the planet. This only made criminal groups stronger and caused the planet to suffer several decades of turmoil when a group of terrorists known as the Red Iaro tried to overthrow the existing monarch and his government. The conflict ended decades ago, leaving the planet in a state of uneasiness and isolation for years, which continued until the arrival of the Krath.
