Canon History:

Talus was roughly the same size as its sister planet, Tralus. Both orbited a common center of gravity and were together known as the Double Worlds. Talus held many mysteries for explorers. It was rumored that a planetary repulsor was located deep beneath the planetary surface. This device may have been used millennia before the Battle of Yavin to move Talus from an unknown orbit and into its current orbit.

The planet was mostly inhabited by three sentient species: Humans, the Drall and the Selonians. Although the three species mostly lived peacefully, there was a history of political conflict amongst them, usually marked by sporadic violence. Talus was also home to farmers and miners, including a noteworthy Zabrak colony.

Originally Talus was ruled by a monarch, usually a Queen. This tradition ended, however, with the reformation period. There were nobles still on Talus as late as 10 ABY, some even claiming to be heirs to the throne.

Around 500 BBY, the Federation of the Double Worlds was founded, which became the government of Talus and Tralus. The capital of the Federation was Dearic on Talus. Corellia, Selonia, and Drall allied in an attempted takeover of the Federation, which failed. The Federation was allowed a certain degree of autonomy under Imperial rule.

During the Clone Wars, the planet was contested between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Mallie and Kento Marek fought on the planet during the conflict.

Like Corellia, Talus remained largely neutral in the early days of the Galactic Civil War. The Galactic Empire monitored Talus for Rebel activity, but allowed Fed-Dub to operate independently and didn't interfere with the planet's major corporations. Although Talus wasn't as well known as Corellia, it had a vibrant economy that revolved around starship manufacturing.

During the First Corellian Insurrection, the Tralus and Talus Liberation Party advocated independence for both worlds. It was later blockaded during the Second Galactic Civil War.

Major RP Locations:

Dearic held the primary starport on Talus, and was one of the most active cities in the Corellian system. New arrivals to Talus were typically processed through this city. The city provided numerous import and export services for locals. Due to its location in the southern portion of Talus, Dearic was also an excellent staging ground for excursions into the planet's wilder regions.

At first glance, Dearic appeared to be a beautiful, bustling utopia. All three of the world's native, sentient species seemed to coexist peacefully. The city also seemed to lack rampant poverty or crime. Public services operated smoothly, and the residents appeared happy and healthy. In reality, however, Dearic was far from perfect. Its idyllic parks concealed violent thugs, and tensions between the Humans, Drall, and Selonians were on the rise.

Qaestar Town was the largest city on the Talus and the Twin Worlds. It was dominated by its enormous spaceport, located on the Qaestar Ridge two kilometers above the city proper. Twenty-meter wide stone promenades called the Qaestar Steps led up from the city to the ridge; the steps were ancient and worn and somewhat treacherous. The spaceport was run by gangs that preyed on offworlders.
