Bpfassh is the primary planet of the system with the same name. Discovered during the Old Republic, Bpfassh is the homeworld of the Bpfasshi species. The planet is separated into two regions, the jungle region and the desert region, which are separated by an extremely large volcanic zone. Most of the inhabitants of the planet choose to live in the more hospitable jungles. Both of these regions are the result of the extremely hot average temperatures associated with the planet.
The desert region is home to many species that have evolved to survive with the barest of necessities. Meanwhile, the jungle region has a wide variety of plant and animal life that one would expect to find on a more temperate world. The Bpfasshi take great pride in being able to cultivate the various plant life to their advantage. Also, much of the animal life on the planet is easily tamed and used as sources of food for the local population.
Bpfassh is the origin of one of the most well known Dark Jedi insurrections ever. A large group of the Bpfasshi Jedi went rogue and wreaked havoc throughout the planet and the rest of the system. Because it took a while for the Republic’s own Jedi to move in and quell the rogue Jedi, many of the Bpfasshi are extremely untrusting of the entire Jedi culture and will quickly turn away those that request to land on the planet.
As a result of the Dark Jedi insurrection, a large portion of the jungle region has been reduced to bare rock and no Bpfasshi are allowed to live there. The region is actually excellent for mining, and off-world mining companies are encouraged to mine the area, just as long as no Bpfasshi is ever asked to help them. There is a rumor claiming that the region was cleared out because of dark energies that can be found in the very center of it.
