Background: The word “saleucami” means “oasis” in Pantoran. For the world’s first Pantoran settlers, the name was apt, as it is the only hospitable world in its planetary system. In time, Gran, Twi’lek, and Weequay colonists also immigrated here. They settled inside the world’s numerous impact craters. The geothermal vents and subterranean water within made these craters unusually lush compared to the rest of the surface, resulting in a world of mixed terrain ranging from wetlands to deserts.
Outside of the oppressive heat of the equatorial regions, Saleucami’s climate is quite mild most of the year. The temperature rises dramatically during the summer months, however, and remaining indoors is the only remedy. Because of this, most pursue their usual schedules at night during the period known as the Eventide.
The Pantoran colonists originally established the Eventide as a holiday of sorts. Lasting a little over three standard months, it is marked by long, lazy days and active nights. Schedules are reversed, with the midday meal traditionally served at midnight.
Saleucami is currently under Imperial control. The Imperial Governor is on the Zann Consortium’s payroll, though, which guarantees that business is rarely disrupted.
The Imperial presence is felt noticeably only in Taleucema and some of the larger settlements on Saleucami. This mostly consists of attempts to crack down on Rebel sympathizers.
