"Talus – city of Dearic: Another capital city plagued by dirty politics and scandal, Dearic is also home to a diverse and bustling Starport. Control of this city provides a broad spectrum of intelligence that will span the entire galaxy."
Ysanne Isard, Imperial Naval Communiqué 31756[src]

Dearic was the capital of the Twin World Talus.

History[edit | edit source]

Dearic held the primary starport on Talus, and was one of the most active cities in the Corellian system. New arrivals to Talus were typically processed through this city. The city provided numerous import and export services for locals. Due to its location in the southern portion of Talus, Dearic was also an excellent staging ground for excursions into the planet's wilder regions.

At first glance, Dearic appeared to be a beautiful, bustling utopia. All three of the world's native, sentient species seemed to coexist peacefully. The city also seemed to lack rampant poverty or crime. Public services operated smoothly, and the residents appeared happy and healthy. In reality, however, Dearic was far from perfect. Its idyllic parks concealed violent thugs, and tensions between the Humans, Drall, and Selonians were on the rise. Likewise, because Dearic served as the capital for the Federation of the Double Worlds, the city had a highly politicized atmosphere. With this, the city was plagued by corruption and scandal, and the populace was largely controlled by wealthy, uncaring and unscrupulous Fed-Dub officials.

Still, the city had a fair share of entertaining events for its citizens. In 1 ABY it hosted a large Life Day celebration.

It was also the site of the Invasion of Dearic.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, prior to its closure on December 15, 2011, Dearic was one of only two permanent, non-player built cities on Talus. However, there was a third game-owned settlement which existed in the form of an Imperial Outpost.[1]

During the Life Day live event from December 16, 2008 to January 12, 2009, players could visit Dearic for a variety of Life Day activities. For the event, Dearic had a blizzard which covered the city in snow.[5]
