The Tangrene were a sentient species that evolved on the Outer Rim Territories planet, Tangrene. The species developed a peaceful, nomadic society, living on a world with very little surface vegetation. Their homeworld was discovered between 5,0003,000 BBY and was the terminus of a hyperlane. Under the Galactic Empire, the species was enslaved for the construction of an Imperial Intelligence Ubiqtorate center. Following completion of the project, the local Imperial Moff ordered the genocide of the Tangrene to prevent any future uprisings.

Society and culture

The Tangrene were a peaceful, sentient species. Their homeworld was mountainous, with barely any surface vegetation or moisture. Instead, lakes formed in underground caverns, around which developed fungal and vegetative ecosystems. In response to their environment, the Tangrene developed into a nomadic society.[1]

History

The Tangrene people evolved on a planet of the same name,[1] located within a part of the Outer Rim Territories that was explored during the period between 5,0003,000 BBY.[2] The Tangrene system became part of the Morshdine sector,[3] and became the end point of a sizeable hyperlane. During the Clone Wars fought between the central Galactic Republic and the breakaway Confederacy of Independent Systems, Tangrene was within contested territory.[4]

During the reign of the Galactic Empire, the successor state to the Republic, the Tangrene were enslaved by the Empire and pressganged into constucting a defensive complex of garrisons and shield generators of what eventually became a highly secure, Imperial Intelligence Ubiqtorate center. Once construction was complete, the Morshdine sector Imperial Moff elected to forestall any chance of rebellion by depopulating the planet. The Tangrene were completely defenceless in the face of Imperial might, and the entire Tangrene population was massacred;[1] a notable Imperial atrocity.[5] Years after their extinction, the Tangrene homeworld was the site of several battles between various factions of the Galactic Empire and its rival, the New Republic.[6][7]

Behind the scenes

The Tangrene were created by Eric Trautmann, author of the roleplaying game sourcebook The Last Command Sourcebook, published in 1994. That West End Games publication was created as a companion to the Timothy Zahn novel The Last Command. The information on the Tangrene was later republished in 1996, as part of the The Thrawn Trilogy Sourcebook compilation. The massacre of the Tangrene then appeared on a map of Imperial atrocities in 2009's The Essential Atlas.
