Kalakar VI

Kalakar VI was a volcanic moon of Dromund Kalakar in the Outer Rim. It was a Dark Side nexus which attracted the Prophets of the Dark Side from nearby Dromund Kaas about 100 BBY, having previously been occupied by the Sith Empire. It was covered in lava flows, its crust riddled with magma tunnels.


Darth Vader came to the moon in an attempt to intercept the Rebels carrying the Death Star I plans. The Rebels were not there: Vader had been lured to the moon with false information by the local Prophets, whom pitted Vader against a clone of Darth Maul. Vader killed the pseudo Maul. Palpatine himself arrived on the moon in a Lambda-class shuttle, killing the Prophets and retrieving Vader. Vader suspected the entire ordeal had been a test arranged by the Emperor. This planet appears in "Resurrections", in Star Wars Tales 9. While initially non-canonical, it has since been upgraded to C-canon.[1] Darth Vader (occasionally referred to as Lord Vader or simply Vader) is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, and has a principal role in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, and...

Kalee

Kalee was the home planet to the Kaleesh, including cyborg General Grievous, a warlord who hailed from this planet. Kalee was covered in tropical looking foliage and beaches. Moss-covered canyons and cliffs filled the landscapes. It was apparently an intensely harsh world, and lacking in many natural resources. The Kaleesh housing and buildings were very temple-like and primitive. The Kaleesh were hunter-warriors, hunting deadly predators such as Mumuu and Karabbac beasts to make ceremonial cloaks and war masks.

Prior to The Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic sided with the Huks against the Kaleesh in the Huk Wars, defeating the Kaleesh. During the Wars, the Kaleesh were winning under the leadership of General Grievous. The Republic destroyed trade, blockading his world. Then the Banking Clan came, paying the planet's enormous debt, and feeding the starving. The war now over, the Clan asked only one thing: Grievous's alliance. Although debt collection was a far cry from war, Grievous was satsified... until he was incapacitated in a shuttle crash arranged by the InterGalactic Banking Clan. Banking Clan leader San Hill paid for a cybernetic suit to be built by the Geonosians for Grievous, who became leader of the Separatist military forces. In return for Grievous's services, the InterGalactic Banking Clan financed the economic recovery of the presumeably ruined Kalee and helped the planet out of depression after the Huk War.

Kegan

Kegan was once an isolated and simple world near the Outer Rim Territories. The planet is very flat, full of fast plains and fields. The people of Kegan believed in a philosophy known as the General Good, which turned out to be merely a manipulation and brainwashing tool used by the leaders of the world, V-Tan and O-Vieve.

However, after four Jedi arrived to claim a Force-sensitive child, Kegan learned of the benefits of joining the Republic.

On a mission where he was pressed for time, Han Solo was able to navigate the shortest course through the Maw of only twelve parsecs. With the boosted speed of the Millennium Falcon, Solo managed to haul a load of spice for the Hutts in record time and earned a reputation as a top-rate smuggler.[3][5][6][7] In Star Wars: Jedi Search, book one of the Jedi Academy trilogy, Han Solo crash lands on the planet and has to work in the spice mines.

Khomm

Khomm is a planet in the core worlds which is a clone world. All of Khomm's people are genderless and cannot support life.

As a consequence, none of Khomm's people can be Force sensitive, because Khomm's first people were not. This however didn't prevent some kind of random mutation that allowed Dorsk 81 to be Force sensitive.

Even though the planet was now barren and uninhabitable, Gog maintained a laboratory on Kiva, where he finished "Project Starscream".

The original prototype creature was destroyed by Gog (aided by two orphans, Tash and Zak) when it eventually turned on him. A Dark Trooper. ...


Kiva was also inhabited by a race of shadow people, formed by Gog's explosion, who sought vengeance for their genocide.

What became of this alien civilization is unknown, but all that remains of it are magnificent ruins scattered across the globe, mostly reclaimed by the encroaching wilderness. This alien civilization made use of a strange technology beyond the comprehension of modern science, and though it seems that they did not venture beyond their own planet to explore elsewhere in the galaxy, they were able to accomplish marvelous feats of engineering—carving mountains into the likeness of their leaders or gods, and even somehow altering weather patterns to their liking. It is hypothesized that they abused these abilities, altering their homeworld to such a degree that it was no longer habitable for them. Jedi Knight redirects here. ...

One of the first planets in the Karthakk system to be colonized, the harsh world of Lok was originally home to outlaws, who saw the world as a potential staging ground for raids into the Mid-Rim. Over time, Lok became known as a "pirate world," where anarchy and violence were the only constants.


Lok has fairly varied terrain, ranging from the dangerous sulfur pools to bubbling lava pits. The landscapes are generally foreboding: jagged mountain ranges, long expanses of baked desert, and desolate flats are typical environments on Lok. The presence of pirates and others is evident in the shipwrecks, burned-out bases, abandoned settlements, and destroyed vehicles that litter the planet.


Before the Battle of Naboo, one of the most prominent leaders on Lok was a Feeorin pirate named Nym. The hardy alien - who has only become more formidable with age - spent many years battling the Trade Federation. He is now a local crime lord, but it is also rumored that he is very sympathetic to the Rebellion.
