Background: Raxus Prime, once known as the Circlet of the Tion and Nikato’s Shining Gem, was a waste-covered planet in the Raxus system in the Tion Hegemony sector of the Outer Rim Territories. Once a beautiful world of lagoons and islands, over many centuries it became heavily-industrialized, until by the time of the Clone Wars it had become totally covered with toxic debris and had a poisonous surface.
Raxus Prime was a highly industrial planet covered with immense factories, sealed living habitats, streams of superheated run-off water, rough-hew quarry pits, vast debris fields, and toxic lakes. Most of the planet’s residents lived in sealed environments near industrial facilities where they worked. Tunnels connected living areas with work bays, storage hangars and infrastructure units.
While the planet was simply known as the garbage pit of the known Galaxy, it held many ancient secrets beneath its trash filled surface. One of which was the Force Harvester, an ancient Sith artifact that was buried deep beneath the planet’s surface until it was excavated by the CIS, who later used it to reactivate the Dark Reaper, an ancient super weapon buried on the Sith world of Thule in an attempt to end the Clone Wars.
The surface was covered with junk droids that were cobbled together from the parts of the millions of discarded and broken droids left there. They followed no master and did not behave by any rules, which made the planet very dangerous. A common rumor was that the droids were working on something large so that they could escape Raxus Prime and spread out into the galaxy at large.
