A planet in the Aru system, Aethon Cluster.
The homeworld of the volus, Irune is a world with an ammonia-based biosphere. This rare environment means that the volus have been slow to colonize; there are few planets that meet their habitation requirements. Most prefer to stay on Irune, working remotely via the extranet. The more adventurous don the clumsy but vital pressure suits and venture out to worlds in Citadel space to make their fortunes.
Irune’s cities tend to be built on fast trade routes rather than militarily defensible positions. While this left them vulnerable to husk attack during the Reaper occupation, it also allowed them to rebuild faster than other worlds, giving them a slight economic edge that they took full advantage of. Right now, the volus are leveraging themselves to be made a full member of the Citadel Council as a result of their economic recovery efforts. While this seems unlikely, the movement has drawn more attention to volus efforts over the past few years, giving their businesses a much-appreciated amount of free advertising.
