Negaru IV is a small, backwater planet in the Outer Rim. It is sparsely colonized and only has one major spaceport. The planet was once home to a major platinum mine, but most of the platinum has long since been mined out. Occasionally prospectors and treasure hunters will locate new veins of ore, though they never last long. Tarvos Ghull made a point of raiding the spaceport (which he'd nicknamed 'the Feeding Grounds') every six months or so, making off with any available platinum and whatever valuables his men happened to find.
