this planet orbitted its star in an ellipse that brought it very close to Rhommamool every ten years. Like Rhommamool, Osarian was not a technologically-advanced world when it petitioned the New Republic to mediate a centuries-old feud which had been refueled by Nom Anor. The feud sprang from the fact that Osarian was a pleasant, temperate world, while Rhommamool was a desolate place originally colonized by criminals sentenced to work in the mines. The Osarians who settled on the planet were more or less the wardens and caretakers of the mining colonists of Rhommamool, a kind of master-slave relationship that wore relations between the two planets quite thin. Neither planet had developed the ability to travel through space, and the Osarians employed a mercenary band of Rodians to protect themselves from Rhommamool. Just before Nom Anor fled the system in order to join the Yuuzhan Vong attack force, he launched a series of missiles at Osa-Prime, leaving the city in ruins and sparking a full-scale war between the two planet.
