Vjun System (Q-6)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Vjun

A dark, acidic world that could barely sustain life, Vjun was originally part of the various ancient Sith empires, dating back to King Adas’ empire and the old empire of the Sith Order. After the fall of the Sith Empire, Vjun acted as a refuge for Sith fleeing the Republic invasion. However, by 4,000 BBY, most of the Sith had died out and the planet’s small population ruled by aristocrats.


Over the centuries, the aristocrats became obsessed with the Sith, turning their families into Sith cults. They remained loosely affiliated with the Galactic Republic, until the Clone Wars when they sided with the Separatists. During the war, Count Dooku used Vjun as a personal hideout. With the rise of the Galactic Civil War, Vjun was also used by Darth Vader as his personal fortress from Bast Castle.


Other dark siders would also take up residence in Bast Castle following the death of Darth Vader, including the Disciples of Ragnos cult, but the planet was ultimately occupied by the Yuuzhan Vong during their invasion.

Originally discovered as early as 25,000 BBY, Resh 9376 was a roaming comet that was never gravitationally locked into any star system. Composed of ice, ore, gypsum and granite, the comet was originally the location of mining expeditions, but over the centuries a shadowport was built into it and came under the control of smugglers, crime bosses, Hutts, and other criminal organizations.
