History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Skkyhrk is the capital of the Hhkar Sphere. The planet was renamed (or, according to them, restored to its original name) after the Hhkar invasion of -222; the planet had been known since the days of the Vilani Imperium as Urinir, a backwater world of the Vilani Imperium known only for its pyramid ruins (now known to have been built by the Hhkar before they left the planet 10,000 years ago).
