"I came from a pacifist colony, Master Jedi. We were bullied remorselessly: by pirates, corporations, Hutts, even governments. I joined the military as soon as I could. Peace only comes to those willing to fight for it."
―Fideltin Rusk — Quote-audio Listen (file info)[src]

A colony of the Chagrian species existed on the planet Mindor during the Great Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire. Founded sometime before the year 3682 BBY, the colony was the birthplace of Fideltin Rusk, a Chagrian who rebelled against the colony's extreme pacifism and enlisted in the Republic Military. However, the colonists' refusal to take action against those who oppressed them led to the colony's destruction at the hands of the Sith Empire in 3651 BBY.

DescriptionEdit

A small colony of the Chagrian species,[4] the settlement on[3] the Inner Rim planet[5] Mindor[3] was inhabited by colonists who were extremely devoted to the pacifist ideals[6] that were common in Chagrian culture,[7] to the point that they refused to fight back against those who took advantage of them. The colony was harassed, terrorized, and manipulated by Hutts, pirates, companies, and even various governments throughout its existence, but the Chagrians stayed true to their values and refused to fight even when the reconstituted Sith Empire attacked the colony.[6]

HistoryEdit

"Ten years ago, the colony was attacked by the Sith. My family was killed. They never fought back. The Sith crushed them, the way you might step on a bug."
―Fideltin Rusk — Quote-audio Listen (file info)[src]

Fideltin Rusk was raised in the Chagrian colony on Mindor.

Founded by 3682 BBY,[1] the Mindor colony was home to the mother and father of Fideltin Rusk,[4] who was born in the colony that year.[1] As he was raised in the colony, it endured the Great Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, though Rusk grew disillusioned with his family's pacifist values[8] and enlisted with the Republic Military as soon as he was able.[6] In the year 3651 BBY,[2] early during the tense Cold War between the Republic and the Empire,[6] the colony suffered an Imperial attack during an illegal incursion into Republic space. The colony was wiped out, and the news of his family's deaths drove Rusk to become increasingly reckless with the lives of his soldiers and even more devoted to the Republic Military.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Chagrian colony was first mentioned on the official site for Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare and LucasArts in 2011, in the Holonet entry for Fideltin Rusk.[4] A companion character for the Jedi Knight class, Rusk also mentions the colony and its fate in the conversation "Passive Resistance,"[6] and the colony is mentioned in the in-game Codex under Rusk's entry.[8]

Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia establishes that Fideltin Rusk was forty years old during the events of the game. Since the character first appears in Act II, he must have been born in 3682 BBY and the Chagrian colony, where he was born, must have been built by that year.
