Background: Teth was a jungle planet located in Wild Space. At some point, the world was inhabited by the B’omarr Order. However, by the time of the Clone Wars, their castles were abandoned, though some would be converted by the Hutts into formidable strongholds. Some distance from the B’omarr monasteries and the Tomb of Ziro the Hutt’s father, an area of mysterious rock formations could be found on the surface of Teth.

The planet Teth was located in the Teth system of the Baxel sector, which straddled the Outer Rim Territories and Wild Space, with Teth seated in the latter at grid square U-12 on the Standard Galactic Grid. Situated along the Triellus Trade Route, Teth orbited its system’s singular star and was orbited by two moons. On the surface was a mix of rocky ground and tangled jungle, all cast in shades of deep purple to light mauve by its atmosphere, which was comfortably breathable for Hutts, humans and other species.

The trees that populated the jungles had serpentine trunks which twisted and coiled upwards, and were bedecked with thick vines. The heavy canopy turned the space beneath into a gloomy, dark place filled with the sounds of a myriad of different species, and were further obscured by the perpetual mists that cloaked the planet. Wherever there was a break in the canopy, the thick ground would cover thrives as tall rock columns thrusted upward from the lowland jungles. Carved out millennia ago by wind and water, the columns were topped by flat areas, the largest of which carried jungles of their own. Due to their elevation above the dangers of the lowland jungles, the tops of the pillars made for good sites for individual dwellings of those that made Teth their home.

Because of the planet’s location, visits to Teth were uncommon, and was one reason why the reclusive B’omarr monastic order established a monastery on the planet.
