Star Wars: Dawn of Darkness
Hontor Galactic Industries
Hontor Galactic Industries is a galaxy spanning corporation based on the planet Aunap in the Aunap System. The corporation owns a multitude of smaller companies and subsidiaries in industries ranging from mining to shipbuilding. The current CEO of Hontor Galactic is Governor Jan Hontor.
Hontor Galactic was founded around the time of the first wave of settlers arriving from Coruscant reached the planet around the year 400 BrS. The corporation was a strong contributing factor to the sucsess of the first settlements on Aunap, especially Hontor City, both of whom were founded by the same family, the Hontor family.
Hontor Galactic’s rich resources also played a great role in securing a favourable end to the brief but bloody Hontor-Kupani War, a conflict between rival ideologies between settlements on Aunap in the year 250 BrS.
The Clone Wars
During the Clone Wars Jan helmed Hontor Galactic Industries as a staunchly pro-Republic enterprise, investing in all facets of the Republic war effort. These ventures yielded high returns for both Jan, Hontor Galactic and the planet of Aunap itself.
As a reward for her loyalty, following Chancellor Palpatine’s Sector Governance Decree CEO Jan Hontor was made Sector Governor of her home sector, further solidifying her positing in Hontor Galactic even further with the blessing of Chancellor Palpatine himself.
Encounters with the Player Party
The player party first encountered Hontor Galactic Industries when they met it’s CEO Governor Jan Hontor when Imperial forces under her command occupied the planet Manaan under the guise of putting an end to the civil unrest in Ahto City, but in reality the governor wanted only to forcible monopolize the lucrative kolto trade based on Manaan.
After Jan seized the kolto harvesting platform owned by their employer the Tarisian, the governor hired the player party for one final task on Manaan before they would no longer be needed, the killing of Negas, a deadly operative formerly employed by two Hutt’s known as King Larngo and King Duumba who’s own kolto harvesting rig had been destroyed on Manaan by the player party as part of a rivalry between the two Hutt’s and the Tarisian.
The player party accepted the governor’s offer, knowing they were lucky that the player party had not been discovered by the governor as being wanted fugitives from the Empire for the assassination of Colonel Taft Madine and Governor Craz Oduur, which they did not commit.
