Candory has a population between 10,000 and 10 million sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world contains an archaeological site with artifacts suspected to be from the now-vanished Ancients. This world designated as a Red Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that make it extremely dangerous to visitors. Everyone is forbidden to travel here. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Five Sisters Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. 100% of the world's population is the Major Race Droyne.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Discovered in 802 at the same time as Andor, this world is an almost perfect copy, right down to background radiation and stellar type. The exception is that Candory is much drier, and the Droyne population is only found on the northern continent, clustered around the starport.
