Zolan was a warm and arid planet located in the galaxy's Mid Rim, near the Corellian Run. At some point, during the development of Zolan's native Clawdite species, a spike in solar activity bathed the planet in radiation. The Clawdite's ability to modify their skin color and body shape, similar to the predatory monzu also native to the world, resulted from this spike in solar activity, and many of the other native species developed different ways to survive. However, many other species were unable to cope and went extinct.
Later on, Zolan's star completed its radiation emission cycle and the planet reverted to more normal radiation levels. However, some damage could not be reversed, as large portions of Zolan became desolate wastelands. These regions were only slowly encroached upon by the remaining plants and animals.
Zolan was the homeworld of the Clawdite bounty hunter Zam Wesell, who was active during the Separatist Crisis. It was also the home of the Mabari, an ancient order of warrior-knights, who trained Wesell until her desire for wealth brought her to Denon.
