Dxun (pronounced /'dʌksɪn/) was the largest of four moons that orbited the Outer Rim world of Onderon. Like its parent planet, it was covered almost entirely by dense jungles that were populated by many species of fierce, predatory animals. Due to its constant rains and wet climate, mechanical devices did not last long and required continuous maintenance. Moreover, the jungles were inhabited by many dangerous predators such as bomas, cannoks, drexls, maalraas, Skreevs, and zakkegs, forcing the moon's inhabitants to be armed at all times.
Though considered a moon of Onderon, Dxun and Onderon are almost sister planets. They are so close to one another that it is only a short shuttle ride between them, and they even share a bit of the same atmosphere. Every year, during Dxun's summer season, the atmospheres of Onderon and Dxun connect. This allowed the vicious Drexls to wander and settle on Onderon, thus laying the foundations for the Beast Wars.
After assuming the leadership of the Mandalorians, Mandalore the Ultimate made Dxun his stronghold, from which he planned his attack on the Galactic Republic. Years later, the Republic attempted to capture the Mandalorian headquarters on Dxun. Republic forces managed to defeat the Mandalorians, but the victory came at a heavy cost. During the bloody battle, the Republic lost ten soldiers for every Mandalorian killed.
After the battle, the Republic military did not bother to demolish many structures that the Mandalorians had built; nor did they uncover the many hidden weapons caches providently left in case the Mandalorians were someday to return.
And return they did. Enter Dxun carefully…
