Han Solo rose from an impoverished childhood on the mean streets of Corellia to become one of the heroes of the Rebel Alliance. As captain of the Millennium Falcon, Han and his co-pilot Chewbacca came to believe in the cause of galactic freedom, joining Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa in the fight against the Empire. After the Battle of Endor, Han faced difficult times in a chaotic galaxy, leading to a shattering confrontation with his estranged son Ben.
One of Corellia’s many criminal gangs, the White Worms form the backbone of the black market in the coastal city of Coronet. Their lair is an abandoned water-processing plant, guarded by an army of urchins and scavengers known as the scrumrats. The scrumrats are ruled by a small number of Grindalids, led by the White Worm matriarch, Lady Proxima.
A sprawling coastal facility, Coronet Spaceport handles civilian, commercial and military traffic in and out of Corellia. The centuries-old facility is primarily staffed by Corellian Security Forces, but Imperial officers and stormtroopers carefully monitor activity. Desperate travelers lacking the right documentation sometimes seek extra-legal ways to get offworld.
For over a thousand years, the Galactic Republic stood firm as a democratic union that governed the galaxy. The Republic was governed by the Galactic Senate, consisting of elected officials from each system and world, and Jedi Knights served as peacekeepers. With the rise of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, however, the Galactic Republic -- and democracy -- would crumble.
