- At some point in time, Kentar was the homeworld of the Kentari species. Obsessed with power and material wealth, Kentari fought constantly, bringing their world, and their people, on the verge of complete annihilation. In an attempt to put an end to the destruction, Lukari, a group following the teachings of the scholar Lukar, stood against the rest of the society. Terrible schism between two groups led to a civil war. After losing the war, many Lukari went into self-imposed exile in what became known as the Great Exodus.
- Not wanting to remember that terrible part of their history, Lukari purged their records of all information regarding Kentar, including its coordinates. Only a few remained aware of its location.
- Kentari continued fighting one another until their world was no longer capable of supporting life. In a final attempt to save themselves, they tried to terraform one of Kentar's moons, Kaalat, but failed, turning the class-L moon into a barren wasteland.
- Huranzi System and Kentar were rediscovered in 2410 by Lukari and the Alliance, during their search for the Tzenkethi superweapon. Scans detected incredible levels of radiation and atmospheric pollution, as well as ruins of once-great Kentari cities.
- A debate over whether the planet should be resettled ensued across the Lukari's adopted home. In a planet-wide referendum, 73% of its inhabitants voted against the restoration of the planet's ecosystem. However, the decision was made to restore its moon Kaalat instead.
- Later, Concordium representative Captain Kuumaarke, aided by an Alliance officer, discovered that the Kentari had in fact been able to save themselves by relocating to a habitable world inside Gon'Cra Nebula.
- “Of Signs and Portents”: The player is sent to the Huranzi System to assist General Rodek and Lukari Concordium Captain Kuumaarke in their investigation of the protomatter weapons used by the Tzenkethi across the sector. Data from the probe Lukari vessel launched reveals that the planet they were sent to investigate is actually Kentar. Kuumaarke, shaken by this discovery, tells the player how Lukari were forced to leave their homeworld in self-exile after losing in the war against Kentari.
