Arzid was a planet in the Calaron sector of the Outer Rim Territories. It was inhabited by forests of giant macaab mushrooms, tentacle-bushes, and by the dangerous arachnor. The arachnor ate the mushrooms as part of their diet.
It was also the site of a small Imperial outpost. Death rates among sentries at this outpost, due to arachnors or tentacle bushes, were high enough that being sent there as a sentry was seen as a death sentence.
