The planet had a long history of use as a droid junkyard, and by Imperial times, droid husks lay up to 5 miles deep in places. The still-functioning droids of Ronyards developed a religion around the planet, which they considered to be the Living Body of God. One known droid type found there was the buzz droid.
The loss of an Imperial-class Star Destroyer with all hands during the Ronyards expedition to mine varium on the planet was likely caused by the planet itself, leading credence to the religious beliefs of the droid brotherhood that Ronyards attained a "spirit" through the assimilation of the countless droid bodies resting on its surface.
