Somov Rit is a sparsely populated green world in the Mid Rim with a native human population. During the New Sith Wars, Jedi scout Torr Snapit came to the planet seeking Force-sensitive recruits but only managed to find three young children; Tomcat, Bug and Rain. The third of these children, Rain, later helped rebuild the Sith Order as Darth Bane's apprentice, Darth Zannah.
The natives of the planet went by nicknames due to fear of the legend of the Swamp Demon. It was not uncommon for someone to live their whole life without their friends and family being aware of their real name. Maslak plants grew on Somov Rit, and the populace were largely seafaring, subsidizing off of roots and fish.
