Corridan IV is the fourth planet in the system and has a single moon named Muse.
Corridan IV was a keenly-sought colony world. The ecosystem was perfect for humans and their crops, with one small exception: The water supply was filled with lethal levels of heavy metals and a bacteria that would make every living plant or animal on the world toxic to humans. To prevent the colony from failing, the first colonists relied on imported water delivered by the Ice Ships of the Ryan Cartel.
After studying the problem for years, a part-time chemical engineer named Gabriel Tal developed a unique fusion filtration system that could economically clean Corridan's water. 95% of all the toxins were removed via this process. Tal kept the process a secret and used it to form Water Pure Industries. This company grew to be the largest of the five Lyran water and air filtration systems manufacturers. Water Pure Industries traded publicly, but the company remained mostly in the hands of the Tal family throughout its history, with the company expanding through the addition of manufacturing sites on both Freedom and Ryde and distribution outlets on a dozen worlds dotted throughout the Federation of Skye. Though destroyed and damaged repeatedly during the Succession Wars, the company has always recovered and even thrived after being attacked - even though the main Corridan manufacturing plant was destroyed for the sixth time during the Jihad.
By the time Corridan was ceded to the Republic of the Sphere, the scars from many raids covered the world. The citizens of Corridan undertook a massive beautification program, and these scars were erased. Combined with the fact that most of the population lives in large cities on Feyrun and Cederban, by the thirty-second century Corridan was once more a beautiful world.
The world's major export in the thirty-second century was still filtration systems, but Corridan was also a noted exporter of agricultural produce and products from the many ranches on the world. Particular exports include certain native fruits and vegetables and meat from the Corridani grazer, a dim-witted creature that was approximately one and a half times the size of a Terran buffalo and which produced meat that strongly resembled beef.
