- "Four worlds have been completely overrun. A fifth, Kaon, is down to a handful of survivors battling for their lives. Among those survivors are several nobles related to the ruling family. But we will have to act quickly if we want to rescue them."
- ―Darth Nurin, during the Tion Hegemony rakghoul outbreak
Originally, Kaon was a trade hub within Xim's empire. After the Empire collapsed, it was revisited centuries later when the Tion Hegemony fractured and Tionese Prince Matteus Zaym fled to the planet to avoid assassination. He eventually proved himself as a capable administrator, restoring Kaon's trade ports and building a massive palace, and therefore restored the planet back to its former glory.
