Centares is a planet in the Maldrood sector, notably close to the casino-resort space station, The Wheel. The planet has a temperate climate and no moons. The population billed itself as the last civilized world before entering the Outer Rim.
The planet was once known as the jewel of the Mid Rim. However, after the fall of the Republic, the Empire tightened its grip on the planet in an attempt to put more pressure on The Wheel. Within a decade, the Empire tapped into the planet’s lava beds and strip mined its prairies turning it into a polluted factory world.
Despite expending most of the planet’s natural resources, the Empire still holds its grip on the system with use of several outposts and embassies.
Areas of Interest
The capital city of Centares. This large, Corellian city boasts a moderately-sized spaceport, a large commerce district, and dozens of large-scale factories and warehouses. Despite the negative effects the Empire had on Centares’ ecosystem, Muracie still thrived as the planet’s sole exporter of industrial goods.
Muracie was also home to a Museum of the Old Republic which housed an aviary.
This lake, near Muracie, possessed a red glow as a result of an active lava flow beneath the lake. Suffering the worst of the Empire’s influence, the lake was so polluted that it could dissolve a creature’s skin in a matter of minutes.
