Varada Five was a terrestrial astronomical object located in the Varada system, a part of the Outer Rim Territories' Varada sector. During the Galactic Civil War, Varada Five was home to the headquarters of the Varada sector branch of the SoroSuub Corporation, a Sullustan-run conglomerate based on the Brema sector planet Sullust.
During that time, the Sullustan Tyanna Tymb was appointed to the position of the top operating executive, or Top OpEx, of SoroSuub Corporation's Varada sector holdings. As such, Tymb was charged with controlling the corporation's headquarters on Varada Five as well as coordinating the expansion of her employer's interests in the Varada system and the rest of the sector.
Behind the scenes
Varada Five was introduced in "Adversaries: Characters for the Star Wars: New Republic Campaign," a roleplaying game source article authored by Bill Slavicsek for use with West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and published in the ninety-seventh issue of the Polyhedron magazine in July 1994. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Varada system, and therefore Varada Five, in grid square I-19.
