Shesharile 5 ~ 5 ABY
With the victorty at Corellia, the Rebel Alliance once again celebrated its heroes. Only eight months after the victory at Endor, a major Imperial fleet was defeated and Corellia vowed to join the Alliance. Among the most celebrated individuals were fighter ace Colonel Moorvack Limpan and ground commander Captain Bruce Testa. Wakka was posthumously awarded the Alliance Medal of Honor for his personal sacrifice.
The Aesad Aerap fleet recieved recognition for their participation in the battle and entered negotiations for full membership and trade relations with the New Republic. Colonel Flambeaux arranged for all participants to be awarded a gold campaign medal depicting Corellia with 30 star destroyers and one super star destroyer placed around the planet on one face and the phoenix emblem of the Rebellion with six Y-wings and a Corellian Corvette on the other side.
It would take another three months of bureacratic maneuvering and preparations before Rath Sunrider pulled together his Shesharile Relief Mission. Led by the Utopian Princess, a small supply fleet with some escort ships left Corellia bound for the Outer Rim and Shesharile 5.
Shesharile’s economy had collapsed. The local woolong was valued at one-twentieth of an Imperial credit, less in some places. Gang violence was rampant. What law enforcement had been in place had now become as corrupt and violent as the gangs they once opposed. Loronar technology that had once served to protect the people was now turned against them by the criminals who acquired it. Some mechanized droid units went rogue, rampaging the dense urban enviroment. Others, like the LE-VO droids were uncorruptible and suffered huge losses.
The former Heliopolis Compound had become a massive squatter city among the bombed out factory ruins. Mechanized walkers and combat droids patrolled the worst areas of town, enforcing what laws the criminal heirarchy for those regions saw fit to enact. Former precincts had become squatter complexes or gang headquartes, sometimes ran by former LALA officers. Bombings were frequent and the drug and explosives trades flourished in an economy where more legitimate buisiness choked to death under heavy taxation and strongarming by thugs.

This fifth moon of the gas giant Shesharile was large enough to be a planet itself. Along with Sesharile 6, they were known as the “Twin Planets” despite the fact that they were moons. Shesharile 5 had been devastated by the corrupt government that ran it. This moon was known for its resorts, but they were dirty and cared little about the environment they were destroying. Pollution had led to ecological disaster, and the inhabitants had regressed to become warring factions. Each group blamed the others for destroying the twins. Much of the commerce on the moon was once centered around making the Imperials that controlled the Minos Cluster happy, so when the Empire and pulled out Shesharile 5 went into a swift decline. Rath Sunrider’s Heliopolis Compound mad an effort to start to rebuild the economy but was bombed by Imperials for supplying the Rebellion. Much of the planet is run by gangs under the control of Yerkys ne Dago.
