Thanagar is located in the Sector 2682.
Thanagar is the home of Thanagarian Hawk-people like Katar Hol, Shiera Hol and Fel Andar. However, it is also the home to several other races that are deemed inferior by the Hawk-people. One such race, the Lizarkons, are a humanoid lizard-like species. Green Lantern Isamot Kol is a Lizarkon. Despite their difficult relationship, Hawk-people are still united against their enemies, the Rannians.
The world of the High Towers, a perfect world. It was a place of no crime, no hunger, no suffering, only the aristocracy, living in peace and prosperity, beauty and contentment. Holy Thanagar. Imperial Thanager. Father of Planets. Master of Worlds.
There are three billion souls in the lower levels and a thousand more being rotated there every day as Thanagarians use them up or replace them. All are simply waiting to be given work again, or, at best to be taken back to their conquered homes.
After the events of Planet Heist, Rann is teleported into the same orbit as Thanagar, causing it to be displaced and burn up. Without an atmosphere, Thanagar was left uninhabitable and the perceived actions of Rann was an act of war. Kyle Rayner and Kilowog terraform the wrecked planet in order to allow it to sustain life again. Once an atmosphere was recreated, the survivors of Thanagar's destruction were able to move back onto the planet and rebuilt their civilization.
Renown Places in Thanagar
- Isle of Chance. Where Katar Hol exiled himself after he killed his own father, tricked by Byth.
- Kalmoran Statue. Great statue of Kalmoran, one of the greatest heroes of Thanagar. He made Thanagarians one planet and led them in their conquest of the stars.
