History

The Morodins colonized the planet in 26,000 BBY. The descendants of these colonists ensured the survival of the species, which went extinct on their original homeworld.[3]

Human colonists from the planet Salliche came to Varonat 250 BBY, founding the settlements of Tropis-on-Varonat and Edgefields-on-Varonat. These settlements never grew to more than a few thousand people, however.[1]

During the Clone Wars, Varonat was plagued by pirates. A force under Ki-Adi-Mundi and Anakin Skywalker was dispatched to deal with them in 21 BBY.[4]

After the Battle of Endor, several Krish under Gamgalon discovered that the fermented juice of Morodin-fertilized aleudrupe berries could be used in place of tibanna gas in blasters. They covered their operation with a Morodin-hunting safari, but the smuggler Talon Karrde, investigating the operation, wound up destroying it within a few years.[3]

The planet was later directly represented in the New Republic Senate.[5]
