Aesirus is a small rocky planet under the dominion of The SoroSuub Corporation.
Aesirus is an unusual planet in that it contains no large land masses or oceans. The vast majority of the land is comprised of rocky headlands that jut haphazardly into the water. There is no spot on Aesirus more than a few miles from either land or sea, and as such, the ocean is very shallow. The truly interesting parts of Aesirus lie below the planet’s surface.
The rocky, craggy terrain is perfect for the formation of caves, and on Aesirus, they are large and numerous, often extending deep under land and sea. Within lie an array of minerals, the caves are rich in gold and iron. Rare lightsaber crystals and precious gemstones await those who brave the deep depths of the cave systems.
The highest points on Aesirus' surface are still barely a kilometre above sea level. As such the height of the tide has a significant impact on which areas of the planet are accessible. Its deep underground cave network is prone to flash floods that have drowned many miners since the SoroSuub occupation.
The SoroSuub Colony
Aesirus is under the complete control of the SoroSuub Corporation. The planet is inhabited by a mining colony 10,000 strong founded by The SoroSuub Corporation, comprising mostly of Sullustans, to strengthen their place in the galactic economy by selling the resources within the caves. With the funding of SoroSuub the tech level of the colony is high, although its inhabitants, employees and their families, are afforded few luxuries. The colony is led by Planetary Manager Eyar Nep, a graduate of the SoroSuub Business Academy.
The main living threats to the Aesirus Colony are the indigenous life forms. On the surface are carnivorous birds half a metre tall. While they naturally feed on the fish in the shallow water, since the arrival of SoroSuub they have found a new food source, and have doubled in size in three generations. Nobody truly knows what lies beneath. The miners have told stories of arachnids the size of humans...
