Cholobara is a fruit from Shibukawa, and is known for its aprodisiatic qualities. Cholobara wine, also simply called cholobara, is a delicate and short-lived beverage that has a natural alcoholic content twice as high as normal wine and is very potent. Unfortunately it loses its aphorodisiatic qualities after a time period of just under two months. It is therefore a very valuable and highly sought-after trade good that requires exceptionally speedy transport.
Reston Bannin, Master and Commander of the Scout-class JumpShip Telendine, had a cargo DropShip fully loaded with Cholobara waiting on the surface of Salford which he wanted to move to Hartshill when his ship received a priority military cargo and was subsequently lost in a misjump out of Salford on 7 November 3056.
