Colamar is a terrestrial world filled with large mountain ranges, sweeping plains, and vast, isolated seas. It was colonized millennia ago and has become a prominent world within the Tantra sector, providing food to many of the surrounding systems along the Dirian Trade Branch and beyond. The world itself has a reddish hue to it; the rocky mountain ranges vary in shades of brown to orange, and most plants on the surface have red-tones to their leaves and blossoms. The sky is almost perpetually colored in pinks and oranges, as if the sun is setting at all hours of the day. At night, the sky is predominantly purple with few stars able to be seen due to haze in the upper atmosphere and light reflecting off of Colamar's many moons.
The original settlers to Colamar fell in love with the planet's natural beauty and rich soil for crop production. Mineral tests of the mountainous regions revealed that the planet lacked many quality elements for ore mining; those minerals found in the mountains have shown to be of poor quality compared to other worlds in the sector, so the planet has been spared extensive strip mining operations and ore processing facilities. This is beneficial to other systems in the immediate region to Colamar; most of the worlds with larger mining operations can't support themselves without the food surplus from Colamar.
Colamar does have one resource that is mined; ixala crystals. These crystals are formed deep within the planet's core and have been pushed to the surface over eons of geological shift. The crystals are used in a variety of applications, from optical systems, communications, and luxury items such as clothing and jewelry. Many of the original settler's families are still involved in the ixala mining trade, nearly a hundred generations later.
When the Empire arrived in the Tantra Sector and established dominance, Colamar was one of the worlds they established as a priority to control. Control of food exports allows the Empire to create shortages on some worlds and costly surpluses on others. This means that Colamar is an important world to keep control of, which is why the flagship of the Sector Fleet's 2nd Squadron is usually stationed in orbit of the world. Additionally, the vast expanses of the Fellwall region provide an idyllic backdrop for training soldiers in ground combat and mountaineering, and the system provides a variety of stellar complications for pilots. A military academy has been established near Fellwall to train troopers and TIE Pilots.
Colamar has several moons in orbit, and at least one of them can be seen at any hour of the day. Three of the moons are barren and covered in craters, but one of them (Kizaq) has a thin carbon dioxide atmosphere. Several outposts have been established on Kizaq over the centuries to explore it's potential for mining or terraforming, but most of those endeavors have been abandoned after determining that such a project would be cost prohibitive. Several of those outposts remain scattered across the surface of the moon.
