Geography and Environment

Anoat is an ice planet, covered in snow and ice, with temperatures well below freezing. The planet has a unique geography, with a network of twisting canyons and frozen rivers that wind their way through the icy terrain. The canyons are so narrow that only small ships and speeders can navigate them, making them ideal for smuggling operations.

In addition to the canyons, Anoat is also home to several cities, including the capital city of Anoat City, which is located in a natural cavern system beneath the ice. The city is home to a diverse population of species, including humans, Twi’leks, and Ugnaughts.

History and Culture

Anoat was originally settled by the Ugnaughts, who built their cities in the natural caverns beneath the ice. Over time, other species migrated to the planet, attracted by the abundance of rare minerals and valuable ores that could be found in the canyons and mountains.

During the Galactic Civil War, Anoat became a hub for smugglers and other criminal organizations. The planet was under Imperial blockade, which made it difficult for the local population to receive supplies and basic necessities. This led to the rise of a black market, with smugglers and traders bringing in goods from other planets to sell on Anoat.

After the fall of the Galactic Empire, Anoat fell into a state of lawlessness, with various criminal factions vying for control of the planet. The New Republic, which was established after the defeat of the Empire, attempted to restore order to Anoat, but their efforts were met with resistance from the criminal elements on the planet.

Notable Inhabitants

Anoat is home to a diverse population of species, including humans, Twi’leks, and Ugnaughts. One notable inhabitant of Anoat is Lobot, a human cyborg who served as an aide to the administrator of Cloud City on the planet Bespin. Lobot was born on Anoat and was raised in the city of Anoat City before leaving the planet to work on Bespin.
