Planet: Arkania
Table of Contents [hide]

Located within the Perave system of the Colonies Region lies the frigid world of Arkania, the adopted homeworld of the humanoid Arkanians, whose hair and pupilless eyes are as white as the snowy landscape dominating the surface of this world of icy winds and towering mountains. Yet, perhaps the most important and economically valuable areas of this craggy orb are the lands where columns of angry volcanoes reach into the sky like blackened fingers and spew forth molten rock vociferously, creating an abundance in natural minerals and ores, as well as precious gleaming gemstones. Its alpine ranges are the domain of endemic subspecies of loth-cats that climb the oft treacherous mountain sides and rocky outcroppings, while the lumbering native kell dragons inhabiting the jagged crevasses and snowy canyons sparked the rise of many local myths and legends among the locals.

When the Arkanians had arrived on the planet long before scouts from the Galactic Republic had discovered its system more than twenty thousand years ago, the world had already been a frozen orb. It is speculated that the cold climate on a planet that should have otherwise been a temperate green globe is largely due to the lower activity of both the planetary core and the unique solar cycles of its primary Olim. It is also assumed by both the brilliant minds among the scientifically savvy Arkanians as well as the rest of the galactic scientific community that the nearly planet-wide mountain ranges formed as a result of an unusually high rotational period in the distant past. Yet, despite its frigid climate and jagged landscape, Arkania still harbours a number of forested expanses which are visible from orbit as smudges of green on a white and grey canvas.

After first contact with the people of the Core Worlds, the Arkanians opened up their homeworld’s massive diamond stores to the Republic, while allowing offworld mining corporations to tap its mineral and ore riches. As a result, the planet and its civilisation flourished in the centuries and millennia that followed. During this time, House Adasca - a noble family of Arkanians - became the most influential and rich bloodline on the planet. They founded the legendary Adascorp, a medical corporation renowned for its bioengineering and medical research advances over the course of its existence. Yet, due to its wealth and vast research centres, Arkania often became the target of malicious foreign influences such as the Sith, who even had erected the fabled library-temple Veeshas Tuwan on its surface. Later, after the followers of the Dark Side were driven off, the Jedi established a praxeum on this icy world under the leadership of the illustrious Jedi Master Arca Jeth. In recent times, much of the splendour and wealth of Arkania was lost as large numbers of its population spread to other worlds. The Arkanians who remained behind clustered into only a handful of cities and developed more isolationist and xenophobic tendencies, coming to view the aliens on their world as lesser beings
