Kadara Planet Map for Mass Effect Andromeda
Kadara Planet Map for Mass Effect Andromeda

Kadara was of great interest to the Andromeda Initiative after it appeared on long-range Surveys. Seemingly abundant liquid water and an oxygen-mix atmosphere made it a strong candidate for settlement, earning it the designation Habitat 4. Closer range surveys now reveal that Kadara's water sources are tainted and unpotable.

Of greater concern is the large settlement known as Kadara Port Reportedly once a trade port for the angara, it has been adopted by exiles, pirates, and mercenaries who use it as a staging ground. Kadara Port is considered a rogue state by the Nexus, given its strong ties to the Exiles, and Initiative personnel are advised to keep their distance.
