The Lightspring was a natural site of incredible beauty and serentiy that was located deep within the most desolate reaches of Tatooine. Neither travelers nor hunters dared to enter this area that consisted of a huge cavern that contained massive pools of water that were lit from beneath by a strange glow. This cast rippling shadows and reflections on the walls of the cavern. The area of the Lightspring was considered a holy site by the Sand People natives which was never to be disturbed or contaminated.
By the time of the Cold War, the sanctity of the site had been desecreated by the crime lord Diago Hixan who claimed it as the seat of his criminal empire. Under his control, he filled the Lightspring cavern with numerous trinkets and baubles from his collection that turned this once pristine landmark into his own personal junkyard.
