Description: Ch'hodos was a rocky desert planet that orbited a red sun within the Outer Rim Territories' Sith Worlds region. Ch'hodos was considered a lesser world of the Sith Empire, and, by the year 5000 BBY, it served as the central base of the Sith Lord Shar Dakhan.
During the Dark Lord of the Sith Naga Sadow's preparations to attack the Galactic Republic, Ch'hodos became a rally ground for his Sith soldiers, with Sadow himself and his apprentice, Gav Daragon, overlooking the embarking of the troops. More than a millennium later, the radiation from Ch'hodos's sun had increased, leading to mutations in the local desert wildlife.
Ch'hodos was a red, rocky planet with deserts on its surface. It orbited a red sun in the Ch'hodos system, within the Trans-Hydian section of the Outer Rim Territories. The area of space containing the planet, known as the Sith Worlds, was surrounded by the Stygian Caldera nebulosity.
Ch'hodos lay along the Nache Bhelfiaâ€”a looping hyperlane that connected the five sacred Sith worlds of Ziost, Khar Delba, Rhelg, Krayiss Two, and Korribanâ€”while the Zorfe Trete hyperspace route linked Ch'hodos to the world of Ashas Ree. Ch'hodos's deserts harbored native lifeforms, and a large building had been made out of yellow stone in a rocky region of Ch'hodos.
An ambitious planet, Ch'hodos held the status of one of the lesser worlds of the Sith Empire and was under the control of Ziost, the Empire's capital world. By the year 5000 BBY, Ch'hodos served as the Sith Lord Shar Dakhan's central base. During the Dark Lord of the Sith Naga Sadow's preparations to attack the Galactic Republic that year, Ch'hodos was used as a place to rally his Sith soldiers of the Massassi caste.
Overseen by Dakhan, Sadow's amassed armies embarked on Sith personnel carriers that were waiting in front of the large stone building, while several starfighters and a shuttle flew overhead. Sadow himself and Gav Daragon, his Human apprentice, also observed the gathering troops while discussing the oncoming attack.
Circa 3643 BBY, the radiation from Ch'hodos's sun had increased, causing mutations in the local desert wildlife.
An individual visited Ch'hodos at that time to observe the changes in the planet's lifeforms. The visitor obtained various biochemical compounds and samples, and brought them back to a partner.
