Definition Of:

Lan Barell

Movies DictionaryStar Wars Dictionary
The fourth planet in the Lan system, Lan Barell is a remote, desolate world home to the small insectoid aliens known as the Qieg. The planet is an arid desert, with most of its moisture found in two thin polar ice caps. The habitable land lies atop three vast, blue-tinged plateaus, which are separated by toxic, ash-filled lowlands. Lan Barell's economy is based on the sales of valuable ore to Mid-Rim communities. The planet once had three moons, but one of the satellites has been broken into rubble due to massive strip mining operations. The world's population includes eight million humans and nearly 135 million native Qieg, who live in colony nests built inside hollowed-out cacti. The Qiemal, a radical sect of militant Qieg, dislike all humans and cling to their old-fashioned ways deep within the cacti forests. Predatory, canine dingories, a natural enemy of the Qieg, are the main source of food for all of the planet's inhabitants. The major city of Lan Barell is Shulell, an eclectic mixture of human and Qieg species and structures. Shulell encompasses the planet's only spaceport, the center of the Lan Barellian government within the Quilan Hive, and the district known as the Grill. The Quilan Hive is a 5000 year-old network of cacti settlements tied together with stone walls, and is the base of operations for the Human-Qieg Guild (a consortium of mining operations that runs the planet). The Grill, a bustling black-market district, is a haven for refugees and exiles and contains a small Rebel Alliance cell. The small community of Carmelle is located about twenty kilometers from Shulell. Nearly 1300 years ago, the mining conglomerate Gaminne Group, Inc. purchased mining rights to the ore- rich inner planets from the Qieg, and built Shulell City on Lan Barell. The system was officially taken over by the Empire fifteen years ago, but the Empire has not bothered with direct control. Due to its extreme isolation, Lan Barell is now a refuge for smugglers and refugees trying to avoid the Empire's attentions. [SWAJ]
