Gardor was a terrestrial planet, it was one of the first planets colonized by the Systems Alliance. It had a dense atmosphere, which caused extremely cold nights. In 2167 CE, the Sirta Foundation established a research outpost on Gardor to investigate the native subterranean life of Gardor.
Gardor was found by humans soon after the First Contact War. The colonist settled on the planet and formed their own military. The Zaroul kept watch over the colonies and prevented attacks from wild creatures, like rakkous and yarmon. Alliance presence was scarce on the planet due to the planet's own military and the colony's scarce population.
