The Shadow of Victory
The beautiful city of Gracemaria serves as both the capital of Kharan Major at the planetary level as well as the capital of the Kharan Empire.
It is a city of 13.7 million residents, almost entirely human. Despite industrial roots, the city is regarded as the most beautiful in the region. It combines sleek glass and steel towers with many gardens and parks.
Nestled along the coast of great Lake Gracemaria, the capital city enjoys a somewhat moderate climate. However, the summers can prove to be hot and there is snow in the winter.
The skyscrapers and towers of Gracemaria are not so high as to evoke images of thousands of airspeeder lanes such as seen on Taris or Coruscant. Street level is pleasant, bright, and clean.
