Felucia is a world teeming with fungal life-forms and immense primitive plants. Much of the planet has a fetid, humid landscape overgrown by forests of bizarre wilderness. Many of the life-forms on Felucia are partially or completely translucent; they color the sunlight as the beams penetrate their skin. Others are opaque and imposing, like the enormous jungle rancors that roam the landscape. Beneath the hazy canopies of the enormous pitcher plants and leafy growths is a surreal color-drenched expanse.
Felucia was one of the key contested worlds in the Clone Wars. Its native inhabitants attempted to remain free of the conflict, but the valuable medicinal spices they harvested from the plants drew the attentions of pirate forces to their world. The Jedi attempted to defend Felucia from those who would exploit the planet.
