Mentioned-only settlement
Ronto

inside: Canada

Ronto is a region mentioned by Ishmael Ashur and the slave Brand. In a speech to the slaves of The Pitt, Ashur proclaims that The Pitt, with its industry, security, and strength, is the envy of the Commonwealth, the Capital Wasteland, and Ronto. The name Ronto refers to the Canadian city of Toronto, which would have been under the control of the United States after the annexation of Canada in 2076, just prior to the Great War. The context in which the region is mentioned implies that by 2277, Ronto had established a reputation as a significant military power over the years.

Ronto is only mentioned in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.[1][2]

We stand at the dawn of a new golden age. Where others merely survive, we thrive! Our industry is the envy of the Commonwealth! Our safety is the envy of the Capital Wastes! Our might is the envy of Ronto!..."

"Stay out of this, Tenel Ka. You can't possibly know anything about it. You have the emotional depth of a ronto."
―Jaina Solo

Rontos were large, quadruped mammals that were commonly used as beasts of burden by the Jawas of Tatooine. They are known for their loyalty and strength, being able to carry hundreds of kilograms of weight. They were large enough to frighten off Tusken Raiders, though they were easily spooked by machines, such as speeder bikes. They were commonly used on Nubia and Benja-Rihn.

Characteristics

A ronto with its handler.

Like the native dewbacks of Tatooine, the ronto were easy to train and became quite fond of their masters. Rontos had superb senses of hearing and smell, although they had poor vision, which is why they were startled by sudden movements. Rontos needed large amounts of water, although their skins shed excess heat, allowing them to function well in desert conditions. They were rarely exported, though, because offworlders thought their skittishness made them unreliable in urban areas. Another reason the ronto was popular with the Jawas is that Jawas did not usually visit urban areas, so it was ideal for desert travel.

When in heat, female rontos gave off a powerful, musky scent much like the smell of a Rodian. During mating season, Rodians on Tatooine were encouraged to stay away from male rontos, as they may inadvertently become the target of a ronto's affections.

Subspecies

A subspecies of the rontos appeared to exist on the planet Kashyyyk. Unlike their Tatooine cousins, they had a darker coloration, a more elongated cranium, and their ears were much smaller. Also unlike their cousins, they appeared to be less easily spooked and were in fact quite aggressive if they should come under attacked. While typically encountered in small groups, how they came to the planet is as of yet unknown.

Star Wars Lore

Found on the desert planet of Tatooine, the saurian ronto is a huge four-legged beast of burden. Locals, such as the native Jawas, use the ronto to haul cargo and passengers through the streets of port towns like Mos Espa and Mos Eisley. Though a towering 4.25 meters in height, rontos are nonetheless skittish and easily startled.

Rontos are extremely loyal and easily domesticated. They develop deep bonds with their masters and their keen sense of smell serves as an early warning to riders of imminent dangers. Their size is such that only the largest of Tatooine's predators risk attacking them. Even Sand People keep their distance from rontos, though a hungry krayt dragon fears little from the gentle herbivore.

Rontos have poor eyesight and are easily startled by sudden movements. They also require a great deal of water, making them something of an expensive investment to a typical moisture farmer or trader. Rontos are well suited for the desert, though. Their skin easily sheds excess heat. The flap-like folds framing their broad faces also radiate heat, and wrap around to cover their small eyes during sandstorms.
