Once called the Light of the Outer Rim, Taris was now nothing more than a planet-wide graveyard, with it's once mighty towers and buildings obliterated and ruined. Another example of the horrors of the Sith, Taris was once a bust city-world, rivaling that of even Coruscant, but it's future came to an end with the arrival of Darth Malak. The outer rim world was already having problems with the alien revolts occurring in the under world, and the release of a deadly virus, giving birth to one of the most feared creatures in the galaxy, Rakghouls.
Since the Gulag plague, the Jedi had thought that the species had died off, until of course their recreation. As a small side project, Supreme Overlord Dredge had come across the last member of the once vast race and cloned it using Yuuzhan Vong biotechnology. Now he had released a new super race of Rakghouls, much more intelligent than their predecessors. Rasu had faced the prototypes on Lujo, but now with the creatures perfected, the Yuuzhan Vong had released them into the galaxy with a large number of them spawning on the ruined world.
Knowing the risk that these abominations would cause, Rasu had volunteered to help purge these creatures from the galaxy, as soon as word of their existence had reached the Jedi. She understood that all life was sacred, but the Rakghouls existed purely to hurt and kill. They were created to cause strife among the galaxy and upset the balance. So journeying to the world with Jedi Council member, Joshua Dragonsflame. The pair set off on a hunting mission with one goal in mind, the eradication of all Rakghouls on Taris.
