Elaaden is the scorching desert moon of a gas giant Identified on Initiative charts as Habitat 2. Eaaden Was considered a "golden world" despite its harsh conditions, because of the moon's vast mineral wealth. Tidal gravitational effects cause plumes of Sodium silicate to erupt from Elaaden's Core, depositing unusually pure Silicon Sand across the Surface-invaluable for manufacturing high-performance computer hardware.
Orbital Surveys show that contrary to projections, Elaaden is almost devoid of water vapor, making long term settlement or mining efforts unlikely. Those who live on Elaaden face a constant struggle for survival. Able to thrive in environments that would kill most organic species in days, the krogan who departed the Nexus have established a Colony on Elaaden.
You arrived at Elaaden to do Priority Ops Elaaden: A New World.
