- "The only place I can think of that might have some left is the ruins of Dynamet General. The place was basically ghoul town. The moment we got near, the rakghouls went berserk. It's one of their breeding grounds or something."
Dynamet General was a hospital located on the planet Taris. Founded as Mercy General, it was the galaxy's foremost center for research on rare neurological diseases such as Cathington's Disorder, and was renamed after the Dynamet Corporation around around 4050 BBY when the company donated a large sum of credits for the construction of a research wing devoted to curing the rakghoul plague. The hospital was destroyed in the destruction of Taris in 3956 BBY, and the area around it became known as the Sinking City.
By the time of the Cold War, three hundred years after the hospital's destruction, the hospital had three total intact floors. The rakghouls that lived in the region established a breeding ground in the hospital, and reacted violently to any intrusion. Doctor Synoda sent a Republic aligned individual to access medical records of the Tarisian people before Taris's destruction in order to collect research on Colu's syndrome, a devastating cancer that effected only the descendants of the survivors of the Destruction of Taris.
By the time of the invasion of Taris in 3642 BBY, the Republic had cleared out the rakghoul nest in the hospital and planned to renovate it. However, the Sith Empire's forces sabotaged the hospital, infecting the still-intact kolto tanks with the rakghoul virus.
