Taloraan was a gas giant with a breathable atmosphere at high altitudes, as well as abundant tibanna gas supplies. Taloraan possessed a spectacular ring system and strong magnetic field that made scanning from space very difficult. Taloraan was one of the rare gas giant worlds that supported life, which included sleft-chuffni, fleft-wauf, and island beasts.
During the Clone Wars, the Jedi Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano and Obi-Wan Kenobi were sent to the planet to make a Treaty with the Denfrandi to get tibanna gas for the Republic. But the denache had allied himself with the Separatists. The Separatists had placed troops in the city and a ship some way off in the clouds. They had planned to attack the Republic cruiser when it came down to contact the Jedi. Then Skywalker and Kenobi warned the ship in time and it attacked the Separatist ship, sending it into the core. Meanwhile, Tano had made a Treaty with the Wind Raiders who helped her destroy Separatist fighters. The Republic ship sent clones to the city that fought with some city guards loyal to the Separatists after defeating them with the help of the city's populace. After that the Jedi and natives continued negotiations.
At some point, Human castaways became trapped on the planet and forced to use the native life to keep from falling into the depths of the planet's atmosphere. They eventually developed primitive tribal societies; the two most prominent were the Denfrandi and the Wind Raiders. When contact was re-established by the Galactic Republic, they gained technology and built repulsor-cities.
At one time, Taloraan was under the domain of Moff Kohl Seerdon. It was attacked by Rogue Squadron in an attempt to weaken the Moff's resources. Their primary targets were the tibanna gas supplies and the TIE Fighter squadron.
