History

Building massive city like hives underground, the only native species on Adleraan are the Killiks. Before humans found their way to the planet the insect race developed tools and weapons and eventually space travel. They eventually departed the world and colonized other nearby worlds. It’s unknown why but the majority of the Killiks abandoned Alderaan. Human colonists came to the planet from Coruscant sometime after. Taken in by worlds natural beauty they built a peaceful civilization in harmony with nature. Settlers were attracted from across the Core Worlds. Eventually the Alderaanian monarchy came into existence, and with it the implementation of many laws designed to preserve the environment.

Alderaan was a founder of the Galactic Republic and one of the early supporters of hyperspace exploration. Alderaan and the royal families had much influence in the Republic. During the peak of the Great Galactic War, the planet's peace and tranquility was shattered by a Sith Empire invasion. While the invasion was unsuccessful the heavy casualties caused the Alderaanian leadership to adopt a hardline militarist stance towards the Sith Empire in the Galactic Senate. With the Treaty of Coruscant ending the conflict mostly in favor of the Sith Empire, Senator Gaul Panteer, the Alderaanian Crown Prince, walked out of the Senate and withdrew Alderaan from the Republic. He was not done fighting the Sith.

The crown prince's actions created much division in Alderaan. While many supported his actions, others were outraged by the secession from the Republic. The crisis worsened with the assassination of the prince and the death of his mother a few days later. The Alderaanian Parliament was quickly torn apart by infighting between rival houses.

With the lack of leadership and overabundance of backstabbing politics, the once peaceful world is at risk of full scale war. And the Republic and Sith puppet masters begin their dangerous game to try and tip the scales in their favor.
