Garos IV

Movies DictionaryStar Wars Dictionary
A terrestrial planet of thick forests and mountains, Garos IV and its twin moons are located in the Garos system with its sister planet Sundari. Due to the navigational hazard of the nearby Nyarikan Nebula, the people of Garos IV have necessarily been independent, relying on little contact or assistance from the larger galaxy. 4000 years ago, Garos IV and Sundari were first settled by human colonists. The two worlds immediately began inter-system trade, since the Sundars were dependent on agricultural harvests from Garosian farms. About 200 years ago, large numbers of Sundars began emigrating to Garos IV, settling in Northlan in the Upper Morcur Valley. This area was the heart of Garos' agricultural and manufacturing districts, and the Sundar immigrants began establishing new businesses and factories-- earning the resentment of Garosians who were hurt by the new competition. A civil war between the two planets erupted when a Garosian grain processing facility in the city of Geran was destroyed-- intentionally, some claimed, by the Sundars. The devastating war raged on for 82 years until a truce was hammered out by Tork Winger, Assistant Minister of Defense for Garos IV, and Tionthes Turi, a respected Sundar engineer. Violations of the truce, such as the Whahalla Massacre, continued, but the Empire's intervention into the conflict approximately five years before the Battle of Yavin brought a sudden, violent end to most resistance. Since then, the Imperial presence on Garos IV has been relatively small and unobtrusive, until the recent discovery of the planet's hibridium ore deposits. Hibridium is only found on the western coastline of Garos' main continent, and can produce a natural cloaking effect key to the production of military cloaking devices. Garos IV has a relatively small population of 20 million Garosians and four million Sundars. Animal life on the planet includes flying, nocturnal crupas and wild boetays, while plant life includes the baraka tree. Ariana, Garos' capital city, is located on the western shore of the larger of the planet's two main continents and is home to the distinguished University of Garos. The Imperial Headquarters building is located across the street from the popular tavern Chado's Pub, while beneath the city lies a vast maze of subterranean tunnels. Nearby, the forbidding Tahika Cliffs run for a hundred kilometers along the continent's western coastline, facing the vast expanse of the Locura Ocean. The new Imperial hibridium mines are located in a mountain range south of Ariana, situated between Mount Usca and Hargon's Hill. Forty kilometers southeast of Ariana is the agricultural and manufacturing city of Garan, built on the Salc River. Garan sits on the edge of the Lower Morcur Valley, a major foodstuffs-producing region, and is connected to Ariana by the Old Currahen Highway. Over nine hundred kilometers east of Ariana on the south-central coast lies the ancient resort city of Zila. Zila is known for its architectural diversity, and a range of stone turrets line the waterfront facing the Cabalia Sea for nearly a kilometer. Mount Berin is located on the outskirts of Zila. Garos' Imperial military is commanded by General Zakar, and the world is ruled by Tork Winger, who was appointed as the Imperial governor. Winger's residence, the Governor's Mansion, is located south of Ariana near the edge of the Tahika Cliffs. Unbeknownst to Winger, his adopted daughter Alex is secretly a member of the Garosian resistance, and has been fighting the Imperial presence on Garos IV for years. Garos' underground movement, whose members also include Magir Paca and the undercover Imperial Dair Haslip, meet in Ariana's subterranean tunnels and plan for the day the New Republic will arrive to liberate their world.
