Onderon is a planet of the Star Wars universe.
It was built on the former Manaan sim, one of the oldest private estate of SWRP.
Background[edit | edit source]
"Some say that war is the beginning of civilization. On Onderon, this was certainly the case, though it was a civilization that took a very peculiar form."
One of three planets in the Onderon system, Onderon has a temperate climate, and was once home to a primitive race of Humanoids. Battle ground of both the Mandalorian Wars and the Jedi Civil War. Home to what is known as the Beast Riders. The Beast Riders of Onderon were a group of dissidents cast away from Iziz by its rulers who had been corrupted by their former king, the Sith Lord Freedon Nadd. The rulers had hoped the dissidents, branded "criminals," would be devoured by the vicious beasts in the Onderon wilderness that had migrated over an oxygen bridge from the moon of Dxun. However, over time, the outcasts succeeded in taming the beasts, using them as winged war mounts for their campaigns against Iziz.
Today, most residents live within the walled city ruled by Astra, Queen of Onderon. Onderon is also home to the Republic Liberation Front, a group that is in direct opposition to the Empire. The city of Iziz is under constant protection by the Royal Guard and Onderon Navy. Onderon has dangers of its own, be it beastys or beastriders or Mandalorians. The Onderon people for several milenia have been independant keeping out of most conflicts and keeping a neutral status. Quite fragile this may be at times, you never know when one may sway toward the path of one or another in disagreement…
