Brotherhood of the Edge
J’artan Vemilla’s homeworld and a minor planet in the galactic Outer Rim.
Erithea, under the Republic, was governed by a feudal system and participated in the Senate only so far as to maintain its generally isolationist position. When the Empire replaced the Republic, they purged existing power structures, including the noble families, and replaced them with a centralized government under a petty Moff.
Erithea counts approximately eight billion residents, most of whom are human and at least nominally citizens of the Empire. Major industries include electronics manufacturing, agriculture, biologics, and research. Erithean universities are not counted among the Empire’s best, but bright students can often arrange transfers into more prestigious programs closer to the galactic center.
A minor trade route brings starfaring equipment, weapons, and modern tools, mostly secondhand from more established manufacturing sectors like Corellia. In exchange, it takes Erithean prosthetics, bacta, and data transfer components to moderately settled planets throughout the Outer Rim.
