Official Name: Arvadia

Places of Interest: None identified
Visitors: Presumably either Rocket (Raccoon) or Blackjack O'Hare posing as Rocket...or possible Captain Sale
First Appearance: Rocket Raccoon II#1 (September, 2014)
Properties: Unrevealed, beyond the implication that it is/was an inhabited planet with a significant population, and that Rocket (Raccoon) could presumably operate on this world without significant complication.
(Rocket Raccoon II#1 (fb) - BTS) - Rocket was wanted for crimes on the planet Arvadia.
(Rocket Raccoon II#1 - BTS) - While attending a fight in the Bonavaglia Arena on the planet Nivlent, Rocket was identified -- apparently by facial or other recognition software -- as a wanted criminal after participating in a "Kiss Cam" shot.
Security soon showed to arrest Rocket for crimes on multiple worlds, including Arvadia.
Knowing someone had been impersonating him and framing him for various murders, Rocket allowed himself to be arrested in hopes that he could discover the true culprit.
Comments: Created by Skottie Young.
In Rocket Raccoon II#1, he is charged with violations on planets 894,
Drumpo, Bloxid, Arvadia, and Thordalio (presumably in chronological
order, as they were clearly not listed
in alphabetical order; but perhaps there was another reason for the
order). Given the timing of this announcement and Rocket's assertion of
his innocence, it seems LIKELY that these were all worlds on which
Blackjack O'Hare had framed Rocket. Perhaps one of these worlds is where (presumably) Blackjack slew Wheezey.
Then again, Rocket kills with minimal, if any, provocation, so perhaps he was wanted on some or all of those worlds for unrelated crimes.
While we don't know what galaxy Arvadia is in, I would speculate that all of the worlds listed in the previous paragraph (plus Nivlent) are all in the same galaxy (and presumably in the same local area), as the security forces are taking them to task for actions in all of those worlds, which are presumably within their jurisdiction.
While there is limited information available, Arvadia is an identified planet with an unrevealed back-story. Prior to writing this profile, a search for Arvadia got me nothing, nor did I find Arvadia listed mentioned in issues indexing Rocket Raccoon II#1, so I'm profiling it to bring it into the light.
