Located in the Trax Sector and orbiting the gas giant Erelebas, the forest moon of Ker-Meh II is the smaller of the two satellites in the Dresscol system.
Ker-Meh II was once a wildlife sanctuary for banthas, rancors, borcatus, eye-snatchers and many more wonderful and amazing creatures. However, the Dresscol system's proximity to the Trax Tube hyperlane, a trade route crossing the sector, made Ker-Meh II a popular hideout for slavers, smugglers, and pirates. Their growing numbers led to a period of violent power struggles. At one point during this time, someone or something brought down a Lictor-class Dungeon Ship carrying over 3000 slaves. The ship made a fiery crash landing on Ker-Meh II, which killed everyone on-board and created a crater on the moon's surface. Some say that the ghosts of the dead slaves can be heard from the charred landscape that marks their grave site.
From its early days as a haven for lawlessness, Ker-Meh II has since been governed by a long line of governments and corporate interests that each contributed to the planet's development in some way before collapsing under their own weight. A string of recycling groups held the longest reign over the moon in its more recent history, though their leavings, such as swaths of forests replaced by landfills, will have a more lasting presence than their occupancy. Each time a new governing body dissolved, more and more of their former holdings on Ker-Meh II were dispersed among private owners. Now, the wealthiest landowners administrate the moon through an oligarchical government.
With four, fully developed cities, Ker-Meh II is once again known for its peaceful atmosphere and many leisurely pursuits. There are luxury hotels to relax in, restaurants and bars founded by galaxy-famous chefs, and an asylum for those who seek healing of the mind among the its verdant natural wonders. Within nature preserves, there are signs that its once abundant wilderness and wildlife are making comebacks, and the protected areas make popular destinations for adventurers. However, these same thrill-seeking tourists also make up nearly half of the patients at the moon's largest hospital in a nearby city.
