Varonat

Movies DictionaryStar Wars Dictionary
Located in the backwater Ison Corridor, Varonat is an isolated, sparsely-populated world of jungles, plains, and mountains. A few thousand colonists live in two main settlements: Tropis-on-Varonat among the pale yellow trees of the Great Jungle, and Edgefields-on-Varonat on the wide plains at the jungle's edge. About 50,000 Morodins-- intelligent, fifteen meter-long lizard-slugs-- inhabit the Great Jungle. The Morodins' bodies produce a nutrient slime that, when spread over crops, encourages growth and produces new strains of plant life. Morodins leave their slime trails in a complex, maze-like pattern. One thousand years before the formation of the Old Republic, a group of Morodins arrived on Varonat to start an agricultural colony. They transformed a vast section of plains into the Great Jungle, and used immense organic starships to transport food back to their home planet. When an ecological disaster befell their homeworld, the Morodins on Varonat were stranded and forgotten. 250 years ago, Adarian Tropis and a group his idealistic followers left Salliche to colonize Varonat. They planted their crops in the Great Jungle, but when the Morodins began leaving slime trails over the crops the colonists drove the creatures off as pests. After the Battle of Endor, a Krish named Gamgalon arrived in Tropis-on-Varonat and began running private Morodin-hunting safaris. These safaris were actually a cover for the harvesting of Yagaran aleudrupe plants, whose berries (when fertilized by Morodin nutrient slime) act as a catalyst for boosting blaster firepower-- much like the spin-sealed tibanna gas of Bespin. The local Imperial governor allowed the illegal safaris to continue since Gamgalon provided him with a share of the profits. Mara Jade, under the name Celina Marniss, worked as hyperdrive mechanic in Gamgalon's organization before joining up with the smuggler Talon Karrde in an adventure on Varonat. [SWAJ]
