Behind the scenesEdit
This memorial was placed by the developers in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies to honor Nathan "Moraj_Markinnison" Larkins, one of the first beta testers, who had died after a brief battle with caner. It was placed in the exact location where the first beta testers entered the game.
It is commonly called "Moraj Memorial" by players and fansites, although the in-game description of the memorial flag just calls it "A historical marker".
The developers also added a special guild hall with a Tatooine Skin that could be placed on any planet.
It was noted in the Guinness Book of Video Game Records to be the first MMORPG to have a virtual memorial for a deceased, real life individual. The Freeman Memorial became yet another in-game memorial for a deceased individual in November of 2008.
