Rori is a swampy moon orbiting the planet of Naboo. Its first colony, Narmle, was settled by King Narmle ca. 2,000 BBY. A second colony, Restuss, was founded as a quarantined processing center/spaceport following an outbreak of brainworm rot on Naboo in 200 BBY. The Galactic Republic attempted to enforce the quarantine even after the plague ended, but the natives rioted, forcing the quarantine's end. The hospital and detainment center were razed in the riots, and a new starport built.
The history of Rori is challenged by Naboo scholars. Some of them claim that a small number of Naboo's original Human colonists landed on Rori before traveling down to the more temperate Naboo below. If this theory is correct, then the early settlers left no obvious signs of their stay. Others believe that Rori remained unsettled until a small group of spice miners decided to travel to the moon to search for the fabled spice lodes. Some miners do inhabit the moon, but they live in a primitive lifestyle and have no records of their first landing on the moon.
Rori is inhabited by Human kassoti spice miners and Gungans, as well as Zabrak and Twi'leks. Its wildlife includes both native and imported species, some originally from Naboo.
The rulers of Naboo view Rori as an extension of their domain. Because of this Rori receives regular supplies from Naboo and transportation between Rori and Naboo occurs often.
