An old and populated planet from the core, close to Alderaan and both with a similar end. The planet was devastated time before Alderaan was destroyed a orbital bombardement.
Several years later, in the books “The Hand of Thrawn”, we discovered how the Emperor himself ordered the attack, first sabotaging the shield generators and later bombarding from the orbit the planet. Everything were destroyed.
Now, in the Legacy era, there are very few useful in the planet with exception from its position, it is close to the core and it is a good transition point for to attack the core planets.
