Tiratu was a biologically diverse planet situated in the Outer Rim Territories' Scintari system. It was home to the Valteen species, and one of the central worlds of the Reserve Guild- making it one of the wealthiest in the Galaxy.
Tiratu boasted cold rainforests and mountain ranges in its northern hemisphere; and deserts, swamps and volcanic fields in its southern hemisphere. In later millennia, the planet became home to massive city-scapes and its deserts were covered almost entirely by industrial districts.
Only three billion years old in terms of its current state, Tiratu formed its ecology late among the other planets orbiting Scintar.
