Description: Scipio was an ice and snow-covered planet in the Outer Rim Territories' Albarrio sector. The homeworld of the Muuns and the InterGalactic Banking Clan, the world had frozen peaks dotted with towering columns and graceful arches.
The planet was at some point host to a warrior culture, whose influence could still be seen in the inhabitants' clothing styles which mimicked armor. The people also used tattoos to indicate status.
The homeworld of the Muun species, the Muun gained sapience and exploited the world's geothermal energy. Because Scipio lacked natural resources of any note, the Muuns colonized Muunilinst and founded the InterGalactic Banking Clan. Using the resources of Muunilinst to back the Galactic Credit Standard, the Banking Clan of Scipio became an important world for the Galactic Republic as it utilized the Credit as a galactic currency. The Clan built its massive vaults on the planet, where the Bank profits were safely held. Other outside agencies, power brokers, and representatives of various cartels made their home on Scipio, hoping to ensure their place in the galactic market.
When the Galactic Empire came to power at the end of the Clone Wars, Scipio was subjugated; though the Core Five were allowed to maintain their positions. Moff Boyse commanded the blockade of the planet from aboard his flagship the Exchequer, ensuring that the Core Five maintained their loyalty to His Imperial Majesty. Despite this, the Imperial control was secretly being thwarted by Muuns and others working on the world. Using secret tunnels below the main vault, some agents of rebellion used vaults hidden in Frigia Canyons to move untraceable credits around.
