Celegia, named after a local dialect for ‘Surprise’, exists as the sole inhabitant of the Celegian System. Initially disregarded as an unremarkable gas giant orbiting an aging star, Celegia kept its true nature hidden from the galaxy for thousands of years. A combination of modern equipment and perfect timing led to the rapid exploration and development of the fledgling planet.
The Galactic Archives on Coruscant suggest that the system was initially charted by Old Republic era hyperlane explorers thousands of years ago. The archives contain only a singular note from early explorers, which reads ‘Uninteresting.' Not even the coordinates for the planet were properly recorded for the archives, and so the planet went entirely forgotten for eons. During this time, it’s theorized that the red dwarf star at the heart of the system began to transition to the next stage of its life, increasing in intensity and size.
The changes to the solar conditions of the system resulted in the atmosphere of Celegia being stripped away from the planet slowly as the sun swelled outward into the system. This has thrown the former gas giant into a state of unstable equilibrium, a transitional point between gas giant and rocky planetoid. While still unbearably hot and toxic, the atmosphere has now thinned to the point that landing onto the core of the new planet is viable.
Recognizing the value of such a discovery, the Faerytail family established a permanent outpost and presence on the planet. Incredible deposits of rare, precious metals were surveyed early into the planet's discovery. However, the planet is also considered to be a wealth of biological scientific curiosity as well. The planet offers an incredibly unique opportunity to study the macro-evolution of flora and fauna on infant and new world. The Faerytail Kingdom's environmental policies have strictly regulated the planet's development.
The planet is considered by geologists to be unstable and changes to solar activity routinely result in changing tidal conditions, seismic activity and tectonic plate movement. Eventually, it will be responsible for the loss of the planet itself as the sun perishes, though such conditions shouldn’t be a concern for tens of thousands of more years. Until then, Celegia is now a promising new scientific and economic presence in the galaxy.
