Laruu has a tainted unbreathably thin atmosphere and very little surface water. The system supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Ushra Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Laruu, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. 100% of the world's population is the Minor Race Hamaran. During the Long Night this world was named Khidderna.

History and background[edit]

A small settlement of Hamaran and humans were established during the Civil War to act as a supply depot] but were apparently forgotten. When the settlement was rediscovered forty years later the entire human population had been wiped out by unknown means and only a small clan of Hamaran survived. They refused to leave and a small settlement was established.

In 976, due to extensive inbreeding the population was on the road to extermination and the Imperial Navy stepped in to ship the surviving families back to civilization. Only one family refused to leave and they now maintain the nearly automated port. Fortunately the family now actively encourages cross-fertilization with visiting Hamaran.
