Description: Rhommamool was an impoverished mining world in the Expansion Region, along the Corellian Run. It was in the same system as Osarian.

Geography
Rhommamool was an inhospitable desert world with red sands. Life on the planet was tough for its inhabitants with even basic essentials like water lacking. However, Rhommamool had large reserves of valuable minerals which would be exploited by the government of neighboring Osarian.

Rhommamool orbited the wealthier Osarian with the latter using the former as a dumping ground for convicted criminals and a mining colony. The two planets orbited each other and were brought together within a million kilometers of each other every ten years, usually resulting in a flare-up of hostilities between the two.

The planetary capital was at Redhaven which contained the planetary spaceport and the Square of Hopeful Redemption which was built from the ruins of the Portmaster's Pavilion following an uprising around 25 ABY.

History
Colonization
Rhommamool was settled by convicted criminals brought in by the Osarians as de facto slave labor for the planet's mines. Much of the profit from these mines went to fuel the lifestyle of the richer Osarians. Although the worlds shared a single government, it was based on Osarian and dominated by Osarians.

The situation largely stayed under control due to the fact that neither planet had extensive space forces. However, every ten years their orbits would bring the worlds within a million kilometers of each other, close enough for each planet's ground-based nuclear missiles to hit each other if launched. At those times of closest contact, the conflict would flare up. Until the close encounter of 25 ABY, the worlds managed to hold off attacking one another.

Jedi Civil War
During the Jedi Civil War, the planet was the location of a battle between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. The Republic won the battle.

Clone Wars
Rhommamool was loyal to the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars.

Imperial era
As of 2 BBY, a small Imperial presence was established around Rhommamool.

New Republic era
Prior to 25 ABY, Nom Anor was dispatched by the Yuuzhan Vong to the planet to stir up dissent between the poorer Rhommamoolians and their richer Osarian cousins. Using a disguise, Nom Anor drew disciples to his cause by preaching hatred towards all forms of technology including droids and landspeeders, the hated Osarians and the New Republic. These disciples became known as the Red Knights of Life due to their red cloaks.

In 13 ABY, Emissary Xbrr-Zinngogg of Rhommamool went to Coruscant in order to warn the New Republic Ruling Council about Nom Anor's attempts of destabilization in the Osarian system. Chief of State Leia Organa Solo refused to intervene, considering this situation as a local matter.

In 25 ABY, the Red Knights of Life launched a planetary uprising which captured the capital Redhaven where a provisional independent senate was installed to rule the planet. During this period, the Red Knights of Life launched a violent crusade against mechanical technology and presumably Osarian collaborators as well. Their actions ranged from attacking civilians simply for using a landspeeder to rounding up all the droids they could find and dumping them at the Square of Hopeful Redemption in Redhaven. There, they would throw droids into a large pit and bombard them with rocks until they were nothing but a pile of metal, one of whom was C-9PO.

During the Osarian-Rhommamool conflict, Nom Anor ordered a missile strike against the Osarian capital of Osa-Prime when the orbits of both planets were at their closest, destroying the city and causing the political conflict to become a war. More missiles would be fired by Rhommamool, destroying more Osarian cities. Large red thermonuclear blast clouds also appeared over the planet, presumably causing harm to millions of Osarians.

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, the Iron Knights fought the Red Knights of Life on the planet.

The world was eventually conquered and held by the invaders.

Places of Interest
Redhaven
Redhaven was the capital city of Rhommamool. Tamaktis Breetha was once its mayor. It was the site of the Square of Hopeful Redemption, a pit located at the local spaceport's former Portmaster's Pavilion where the Red Knights of Life, led by Nom Anor, stoned droids before destroying them.

Square of Hopeful Redemption
The Square of Hopeful Redemption was the public square of the city of Redhaven on Rhommamool. It was once a spaceport, but after Nom Anor's rise to power, it was torn down to create an area where citizens could stone droids and other pieces of technology to destruction. It could contain over 10,000 people for such ceremonies. The center of the Square was a pit thirty meters wide and ten deep, where the Portmaster's Pavilion once stood.

Portmaster's Pavilion
The Portmaster's Pavilion was a building thirty meters wide that once stood in Redhaven's spaceport on Rhommamool. After Nom Anor came to power, it was torn down to create the center of the Square of Hopeful Redemption.
