Description: Adumar was a temperate planet located near the Coreward edge of Wild Space first settled by Humans in the Ductavis Era. The settlers, who had been exiled from the Republic, lived in isolation for years, and developed into several nations that spread across the world. Their culture became obsessed with the arts of blastsword fighting and starfighter combat, to the point where skilled swordsmen and pilots were highly revered. Their society also made considerable use of formal duels as means for settling disputes or even just for entertainment, and also had a rigid social hierarchy.
By 12 and 13 ABY, Adumari scoutships had ventured far enough from their homeworld to learn of the events of the larger galaxy; namely, the struggle between the New Republic and Galactic Empire. As Adumar had considerable industrial resources devoted to manufacturing munitions, both sides were eager to gain an alliance with the world. Therefore, both the New Republic and the Empire sent delegations to Adumar, each composed of elite starfighter pilots. The delegations were sent to Adumar's largest nation, Cartann, and during their stay, the perator, or leader, of Cartann decided to take control of the entire planet. While he had aid from the Empire, the New Republic pilots escaped Cartann and rallied the other Adumari nations into the Adumari Union and defeated Cartann and its allies. The Adumari also later routed an Imperial task force sent to aid Cartann and ultimately joined the New Republic. They would remain members of the New Republic and its successor state, the Galactic Alliance, for years, participating in the Yuuzhan Vong War and the Second Galactic Civil War, during which the world broke with the Galactic Alliance to join the Confederation.
Adumar's Human settlers had a complex social structure which was based on personal honor and triumph over one's enemies. Adumari nobility was obsessed with blastsword duels and starfighter combat, ignoring the underprivileged underground factory workers until the planet joined the New Republic. The Adumari were also skilled in the manufacture of missiles, with several kinds being producedâ€”including, for example, a variety which would penetrate through a solid surface before detonating, creating a large crater in the target. Their extensive missile production facilities could easily be modified into proton torpedo production, leading to both Imperial and New Republic interest in wooing the planet. However, the Adumari lacked a planetary government and were instead divided into several nation-states, though the most powerful was Cartann's nation. Cartann also controlled several smaller nations through diplomatic treaties and alliances.
In the Ductavis Era, Adumar was settled by a separatist group of Humans that had been defeated by the Galactic Republic and banished. During this long period of isolation from galactic civilization, Adumari civilization would develop into that of various states which fought each other. Adumari nobility was obsessed with blastsword duels and starfighter combat, and were also skilled in the manufacture of missiles which could easily be modified into proton torpedoes.
Galactic Civil War
In the years 12 to 13 ABY, Adumari scoutships had ventured far enough into inhabited space to have learned what had taken place in the wider galaxy during their isolation, most notably of the ongoing Galactic Civil War between the New Republic and the remnants of the Empire. In the aftermath of the Orinda campaign, the New Republic and the Empire learned that Adumar was an industrial powerhouse manufacturing missiles, and both sides saw the strategic importance the planet possessed if they could bring it to their camp.
However, negotiation by diplomats would be impossible due to the Adumari reverence for military heroes. The Perator of Cartann Pekaelic ke Teldan offered both governments the chance to prove themselves with the winner earning the allegiance of Adumar and its valuable missile industrial powerhouse. The New Republic sent General Wedge Antilles of the famed Rogue Squadron while the Imperials dispatched Turr Phennir, who had assumed control over the legendary 181st Imperial Fighter Wing.
Soon after, the Perator of Cartann, with nudging by rogue New Republic diplomat Tomer Darpen, declared that he was creating a planetary government controlled by Cartann. When representatives of the smaller Adumari states opposed Cartann, the Perator declared war, beginning the Adumari Civil War. When the Perator asked the Imperial and New Republic pilots to support Cartann in the conflict, Phennir agreed, while Antilles refused. In response, Darpen tricked the ruler into believing that Antilles and his pilots wanted an honorable death in combat with the to avoid the shame of having to refuse. After escaping the Cartann forces Antilles came in contact with the developing Adumari Coalition and agreed to lead their combined armies in an attack on Cartann. Following the successful attack Darper was arrested and The Perator abdicated the throne in favor of his son, Balass ke Teldan. Balass ke Teldan settled an agreement with the other Adumari state leaders, and the various Adumari nations united under the Adumari Union, a government supportive of the New Republic.
Following the establishment of the planetary government, the Empire attacked the planet, beginning the Battle of Adumar. The combined New Republic and Adumari Union forces were able to repel the Imperial invasion. In retaliation, Imperial Admiral Pellaeon later attacked Adumar and bombarded the planet with the Super Star Destroyer Reaper.
uzhan Vong agent Nom Anor incited anti-Republic riots on the world in the months following its allying with the New Republic.
Near the end of the Galactic Civil War, in 17 ABY, the Imperial Remnant launched the last major Imperial campaign against the New Republic. Admiral Pellaeon fought a victorious battle at Adumar but the Imperial forces were eventually defeated, forced to negociate peace with the New Republic two years later.
Yuuzhan Vong War and later history
In 26 ABY, during the Yuuzhan Vong War, Adumari forces launched a flanking maneuver against the Yuuzhan Vong near the Bilbringi system, aiding in the repulsion of the Vong from the Galactic Core.
In 40 ABY, Adumar became allied with Corellia at the start of the Second Galactic Civil War. That year, Jedi Knight Jacen Solo and his apprentice Ben Skywalker were sent on a mission to uncover an illegal missile factory on the planet Adumar. The mission ended in a violent ambush, from which both Jedi narrowly escaped with their lives. The incident sparked political unrest that threatened to ignite into total rebellion and shatter the young Galactic Alliance.
