Rodia was a hot, humid world which was covered in dense tropical jungles as well as sprawling cities and industrial areas. A large area of the planet was also covered in oceans and there appeared to be two polar regions on the extreme latitudes. It has two major cities, Iskaayuma and the capital, Equator City.
It is the home of local businesses, like Tonena Munitions Corporation and the Rodmark Weapons Plant. It has also become the home of several major off-world businesses, such as Throndec Industries and Wookiee Cube, who's space casino, the Wild Wroshyr is currently located behind Rodia's largest moon, Enak.
When Teezyk was Grand Protector, his son-in-law Vreegon convinced him to bring a Jedi named Brulax Ruso to aid in protection of the planet. Master Ruso subsequently founded the Free Jedi Order on Rodia.
A Sith name Jark Hothar decided he wanted to take the planet in order to create an army of super soldiers by brainwashing the Jedi into becoming his mindless slaves. There was a short space battle, in which Jark's forces where defeated. However, the short space battle was a ruse. Jark was in one of 9 transports which decended to the surface, using a prototype missile to create a small, temporary gap the shields. The transports landed all over the city, forcing the Rodian Regiment and the Free Jedi Order to spread out to defend them. This was still just a ruse. With the defenders occupied, Jark entered the Grand Protector's mansion and took his family hostage, forcing the GP to do as he ordered. Per Jark's orders, Vreegon broadcasted across Equator City that the Jedi were outlaws and ordered the Rodian Regiment to attack. They forced the Jedi to flee the city and destroyed the warehouse which had served at their home.
