Taanab is a planet covered in green meadows, found in the Taanab system. Originally covered in thick, inhospitable jungles like Felucia, it was transformed into how it is seen now, likely during the New Sith Wars, when the Brotherhood of Darkness captured the world.
The planet had problems with seasonal pirate raids from interstellar bandits from Norulac for millennia prior to the Battle of Taanab, at which time Taanab was freed from Norulacan tyranny by Lando Calrissian.
Some years later, Jedi Knight Jaden Korr came to the world in a mission to discover more about the operations run there by the Disciples of Ragnos. While on-world, he came face to face with a mutant rancor, which the Disciples intended to release in a populated area so they could pillage during the ensuing chaos. Unfortunately for them, Jaden did battle with the beast and killed it, while it killed many of the Disciples in its wake beforehand, as well as destroying their facilities.
It is now primarily used for agriculture and farming, and its populace are known for always maintaining an air of formality. It is especially known for its roba steak.
