Bakura

Movies DictionaryStar Wars Dictionary
Bakura is a rich, green and blue planet with several moons located on the isolated edge of the Rim Worlds. The eight planets in the Bakura system include one gas giant and Planet Six, an ammonia ice-covered ball. Bakura receives a great deal of rainfall. The capital city of Salis D'aar sits at the base of a mountain range, on a white quartz delta between two parallel rivers. Bakura's exports include strategic metals, repulsorlift components, and an addictive fruit called namana, which is made into candies and nectar. Bakura was settled by the Bakur mining corporation during the end of the Clone Wars, though at least one building on the planet is over 100 years old. The planet's inhabitants tend to be prejudiced against non-human species, though some pale, hairless Kurtzen inhabit the Kishh district. The Bakurans especially dislike droids, since the first wave of Bakuran colonists were nearly wiped out by malfunctioning droids. The Bakur complex in Salis D'aar is a large city-center containing residential, medical, and Imperial office areas, and the old Bakur Memorial Building overlooking Statuary Park. Animal life on Bakura includes the butter newt and the predatory Bakuran Cratsch, and its plants include pokkta leaves, namana trees, and passion-bud vines. Bakura was once run by a prime minister and a senate-- the descendants of the Bakur Corporation's original ship's captain served as prime minister, and senators were appointed by their colleagues instead of elected by the public. The constant governmental bickering allowed the planet to fall easily to the Empire three years prior to the Battle of Endor. Two Star Destroyers neutralized Bakuran resistance, and Captain Alecs Brellar served as the temporary Imperial governor until Wilek Nereus could arrive. Nereus allowed the Bakuran senate to remain in place under his control, and built a planetary garrison (featuring older, outdated defenses) which was placed under the command of Pter Thanas. Immediately following the Battle of Endor, Alliance and Imperial forces briefly joined together at Bakura to thwart an invasion by the Ssi-ruuk Imperium. After the subsequent overthrow of Imperial forces, Prime Minister Yeorg Captison took over the leadership of Bakura. Several years later, Yeorg's niece Gaeriel Captison was elected Prime Minister, but was defeated in a succeeding election. The planet retained a powerful defensive fleet to guard against any further Ssi-ruuk attacks, and Bakuran techs designed the ships to escape from interdiction fields. Luke Skywalker returned to Bakura, fourteen years after the truce, to borrow this fleet for a mission in the Corellian system. Half of the Bakuran cruisers were destroyed in the successful mission, and Gaeriel Captison was killed. [TAB, AAS, SAC, SWAJ]
