Sedesia was a high-gravity Mid Rim world with harsh terrain and rough weather.

DescriptionEdit

Sybegh Abya

Sybegh Abya, a native of Sedesia.

The planet had a tilted axis of 45 degrees, which resulted in extreme weather conditions. During the winter, nearly a sixth of the planet's surface received no sunlight. The high rotating speed and the extreme differences in temperature resulted in violent weather conditions with sudden winds and storms. This made the use of repulsorcrafts rather impossible.[3]

Most of the planet's terrain was dominated by vast steppes and tundras, and the occasional forest.[3]

HistoryEdit

Sedesia was colonized several centuries before the Galactic Civil War. The inhabitants settled mostly in spread-out farms, smaller communities and several cities[3], the largest being Besia Osurne. They made their living of ranching, herding and logging in the more wetter regions. The harsh climate and gravity made the Sedesians self-reliant, tough and determined, but also very stubborn. Technology-wise Sedesians employed modern technology, but also relied on imported space-age and locally made industrial-age items and equipment. In the tundras, where roads where very bad, Striders were still the most common method of transportation.[3]

During the Galactic Civil War, Sedesia was a hotbed of Rebel activity. Rebel operatives and fugitives often found refuge on the outlying farms and tonnages of breedtash meat were smuggled off-world and supplied to the Rebel Alliance.[3] This changed when the Galactic Empire retaliated: Under the Pathogen-Based Loyalty Enhancement Program, lead by Dr Fesjo Negleem, the Empire spread the "Gray Death", an artificially created virus, under the population to pacify the planet. Within two weeks, the virus infected over 99 percent of the population, killing over 35,000 inhabitants and effectively disrupted the government, military and all Rebel resistance.[5]

After the outbreak, COMPNOR and Military personnel moved in and took over the planet in a completely bloodless occupation.[5] SAGroup volunteers then proceeded to distribute a cure under the auspices of humanitarian relief.[6] For months,[7] this lead to the destruction of all Rebel sentiment on the planet before the revelation of the truth by Rebel agents. As a result, Sedesia revolted against the Empire. However, while initially disorganized, the taskforce swiftly responded and took over the planet by force.[8]

LocationsEdit

Besia OsurneEdit

The only starport of the planet was located in Besia Osurne, the largest city on Sedesia. It had a population of 250,000 people and several stockyards processing plants for breedtash meat.[9] It also contained the tavern Trail's End.[6]

Imperial research centerEdit

Located half a kilometer outside of Besia Osurne,[10] this former veterinary center served as a research center for the Imperial scientists to develop a cure for the Gray Death plague as well as the headquarter for Dr Fesjo Negleem.[11]
