While almost entirely devoid of natural life, the icy crevasses of Bri`ahl II teem with dubious enterprise. The small planet and its isolated gravity well make it an ideal launching point for illicit trading enterprises, which would explain the necessity for more than one unregistered settlement with a fully equipped spaceport on such a wasteland.

From space, there seems to be an almost human intention to the pattern formed by the great cracks in the ice on Bri`ahl II. There are those who believe that symbols can be traced among them, as constellations are seen in the stars. Even more controversially, there is said to exist a secretive sect, with members among the highest echelons of galactic society, who believe that the entire surface of Bri`ahl II was shaped by the god-like hand of an ancient Sith lord.
