Kiast is a terrestrial planet in the Nilgaard sector of the Outer Rim territories inhabited by a subspecies of Sephi, who rule the planet from their highborne skyhooks and floating cities. Its inhospitable surface, and deadly sulfuric atmosphere surrounding it, are contrasted by clear blue skies above the thick cloud cover.
Recorded history on Kiast began with the settling of the planet, some 2000 years ago by Gand settlers. Finding the planet’s atmosphere more manageable than Type I atmospheres, they settled the toxic surface in an attempt to start several mining colonies. No permanent settlement was ever created, however, the Gand stayed on the surface until this day, ferrying materials and ore from the surface and trading it with the galaxy.
