Morag is an oceanic planet located in the Andromeda Galaxy. Some inhabitants of this planet were the rodent-like Orloni and aquatic crocodile-like creatures.
Thousands of years ago, Morag was the home of an advanced and flourishing civilisation, that was wiped out by a global warming catastrophe. Sometime prior to their demise, the inhabitants of Morag built a temple to guard the Orb, an artifact that contained an Infinity Stone.
Following the warming, Morag became entirely covered in oceans. However, every 300 years, the sea lowers and the Temple is made accessible.
Guardians of the Galaxy
In 2014, Star-Lord landed on Morag and entered the Temple Vault. He obtained the Orb, but was immediately surrounded by Korath the Pursuer and two others.
After identifying himself, Star-Lord ducked as Korath fired upon him, destroying a temple wall. Star-Lord activated his helmet and quickly exited the Temple Vault with Korath and his men in pursuit. Star-Lord raced to the Milano and took off. Korath and the Sakaarans fired on the Milano but Quill dodged the blast and left the planet.
Shortly after Quill left, Yondu Udonta came for the Orb, only to find it and Quill gone.
