Talus was one of the Twin Worlds located in the Corellian system that orbited Centerpoint Station, the other being Tralus, its sister planet. It was one of the five habitable planets in the system, and was a temperate world very similar to Corellia. It had a wide range of climates and terrain, including forests, grass plains and mud flats.

History[edit | edit source]

A grassy seaside landscape on Talus

Talus was roughly the same size as its sister planet, Tralus. Both orbited a common center of gravity and were together known as the Double Worlds. Talus held many mysteries for explorers. It was rumored that a planetary repulsor was located deep beneath the planetary surface. This device may have been used millennia before the Battle of Yavin to move Talus from an unknown orbit and into its current orbit.

The planet was mostly inhabited by three sentient species: Humans, the Drall and the Selonians. Although the three species mostly lived peacefully, there was a history of political conflict amongst them, usually marked by sporadic violence. Talus was also home to farmers and miners, including a noteworthy Zabrak colony.

Originally Talus was ruled by a monarch, usually a Queen. This tradition ended, however, with the reformation period. There were nobles still on Talus as late as 10 ABY, some even claiming to be heirs to the throne.

Around 500 BBY, the Federation of the Double Worlds was founded, which became the government of Talus and Tralus. The capital of the Federation was Dearic on Talus. Corellia, Selonia, and Drall allied in an attempted takeover of the Federation, which failed. The Federation was allowed a certain degree of autonomy under Imperial rule.

Nashal during the Galactic Civil War

During the Clone Wars, the planet was contested between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Mallie and Kento Marek fought on the planet during the conflict.

Like Corellia, Talus remained largely neutral in the early days of the Galactic Civil War. The Galactic Empire monitored Talus for Rebel activity, but allowed Fed-Dub to operate independently and didn't interfere with the planet's major corporations. Although Talus wasn't as well known as Corellia, it had a vibrant economy that revolved around starship manufacturing.

During the First Corellian Insurrection, the Tralus and Talus Liberation Party advocated independence for both worlds. It was later blockaded during the Second Galactic Civil War.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In the cancelled novella Supernatural Encounters: The Trial and Transformation of Arhul Hextrophon, both Tralus and Talus were named after the twin commanders of the Thirteenth Battalion of Zhell, who died fighting against Mhu'anThul.[5]
