Named after Salovan Fische, the original founder of Point Nadir, the Souk was set up like an open-air bazaar. It was filled with temporary booths and tables where merchants sold their wares to interested parties. As the center of commerce for the spaceport, the Souk was always crowded and the counterpoint to the Trade District of Point Nadir, which housed permanent places of business such as machine shops, information brokers, and technology services.
Slave trading was a large part of the business that took place in the Souk. Well attended slave auctions took place a minimum of three times daily, and accounted for a large portion of the revenue brought in by the market.
