Giju is the Herglic homeworld. It is on the Rimma Trade Route and is one endpoint of the Giju Passage. Giju is an aquatic-type world with large bodies of water and associated terrain including: expansive oceans, islands, marshes, and glaciers.
When the New Order was being formed, this planet was one of the earliest to fall under Imperial control. In particular, manufacturing centers and spaceports were taken over, spurring a violent, yet brief, rebellion by the natives. After the Herglic people suffered gross massacres for their armed resistance, they yielded to the Empire’s rule.
