Ark Brell was a male environmentalist who worked to clean up his homeworld of Taris in the days before the planet's bombardment in 3956 BBY. Brell set up a number of water purification and waste disposal plants on Taris, intending to turn the waste from Taris's numerous factories into alternative fuel sources and to minimize the city-world's waste. However, when the planet was bombarded by the Sith Lord Darth Malak, many of the world's factories and plants were destroyed and spilled toxic waste across the surface. Hundreds of years later, the area around the Taris ChemWorks Factory had become known as the Brell Sediment, and an acid lake in the area had been named Lake Brell after the environmentalist, as a persistent legend stated that the lake had been formed by the waste from one of Brell's own factories.
