Taris is a codex entry located within the planets section of a player's codex once it has been unlocked. Players can earn this codex entry by arriving on the planet Taris. The entry provides a brief summary of the planet's recent history.
|“||Taris was once a city-world like Coruscant. Three centuries ago, however, it was bombarded by the Sith Lord Darth Malak and left a toxic ruin. The years since have not been kind to Taris, as a vegetation and animal life struggle to gain a foothold in the shattered skeleton of a planetary metropolis.
The Republic began to recognize Taris less than a decade ago, and has suffered innumerable setbacks-everything from pirate attacks to the strange "rakghoul plague." Nonetheless, the reconstruction effort continues, its proponents determined to prove that the Empire can never truly destroy greatness.
