Star Wars - Enemies of the Outer Rim
Ruuria, on the Hydian Way, was the home world of the insectoid Ruurians. The planet was located on the borders of the Tion Cluster, near the Corporate Sector. It featured tropical jungles, manufacturing centers, and universities. Ruuria was a member of the Unified Ruurian Colonies. During the Yuuzhan Vong War, Ruuria was conquered by the Yuuzhan Vong though they left the natives alone
Regarded as a relatively peaceful planet, Ruuria has seen more action recently due to the establishment of an extensive underground base by Nom Anor. This facility included a prison level, genetics lab, and cybernetics facility. Nom Anor’s extensive research was mostly destroyed by the Mandalorians, who broke into the facility to rescue the mercenaries who Nom Anor had fooled into working for him. Their escape from the lab wreaked significant damage on the base, and the Mandalorian’s returned to purge much of it.
However, the event did not go unnoticed, within months, Ruuria played host to a group of Sith under the command of Lord Morigis, tasked with finding the base and excavating it. They were hampered by the tropical jungles dense wildlife and vicious lifeforms, before finally ending the search due to a slave revolt. With the departure of Lord Morigis and his forces, Ruuria has returned to its peaceful existence.
