Ch'hodos's red sun was a red star that was located in the Ch'hodos system. It was a part of the Esstran sector, in the Trans-Hydian portion of the Outer Rim Territories. The area of space containing the star was surrounded by the nebulosity of the Stygian Caldera, and was known as the Sith Worlds. The Ch'hodos system was linked via Nache Bhelfia hyperlane to the Krayiss and Ziost systems, while the hyperspace route known as Zorfe Trete connected it to the Ashas Ree system.
An individual visiting Ch'hodos at that time discovered skeletons of mutated creatures inside a cave, which suggested that the planet's sun had cyclically gone through similar changes in radiation output in the past.
Behind the scenes
Ch'hodos's red sun was mentioned in Rise of the Hutt Cartel, a 2013 expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, a 2011 massively multiplayer online roleplaying game developed by BioWare. The Ch'hodos system, and therefore the red sun, was placed in grid square R-4 by the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas.
