The only inhabited world in the Al'Har system, Haruun Kal appeared to be an oceanic world from space. However, this "ocean" was in fact a sea of toxic gases brought to the surface by volcanic activity, and broken by mountains and plateaus. Only the landmasses that reached into the atmosphere could support life, and thus it was high in these mountains and plateaus where native life evolved.
Native Humans of the world, known as Korunnai (Uplanders) were all Force-sensitive. There were many theories explaining this remarkable phenomenon. The most popular, held by the Jedi Council, indicated that during the Great Sith War a starship transporting Jedi Knights crashed on the planet, and that the marooned survivors were the ancestors of the Korunnai.
The planet had a rotation rate of 25.5 standard hours, and a year length of 383 local days. Its diameter was 10,120 kilometers, and had .98 standard gravity.
All electronics on the planet had to be rubbed down with portaak amber to prevent the planet's various metal-eating and silicate-eating fungi from destroying them; even with the amber, electronics were somewhat vulnerable.
During the reign of the Republic, war between the native Koruun tribes and immigrants, whom the natives named Balawai, meaning "Downfolk", divided the population of Haruun Kal. These Summertime Wars lasted from 51 BBY until 22 BBY. Mace Windu brought an end to this war when he returned to his homeworld during the Clone Wars, in which the Korunnai were allied with the Republic and the Balawai with the Separatists. However, in the process of bringing an end to both the long local conflict and breaking the Separatist hold on the planet, he watched his former Padawan, Depa Billaba, who had been on the planet supposedly leading missions for the Republic, fall to the dark side.
Shortly after the Galactic Empire was established, an Imperial Navy fleet bombarded Haruun Kal. By 40 ABY it was unknown if any Korunnai had escaped extermination. However, as it turned out, at least three Korrunai still lived during 5 ABY-specifically Nick Rostu, Kar Vastor, and Lorz Geptun.At some point prior to 40 ABY, Haruun Kal (presumably represented by Balawai) joined the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances.
The fauna on Haruun Kal included many predators and scavengers. Many of the insects were parasitic. Notable fauna included akk dogs, ankkoxs, branch leopards, fever wasps (cause of Wasp Fever), Tuskers, Jacunas, Vine cats, Rot crows and grassers.
The Flora of Haruun Kal was made up of lush trees and dangerous fungi. Certain Fungi that blanketed the planet were corrosive to metal. With out protection, vehicles, communication equipment and other advanced technology would be destroyed with in days. Other fungi rapidly decomposed dead tissue. Plant life came in every shade of green. Important plants included portaak, brassvine, Glass-fern, Jinsol, Thyssel, and Lammas.
