Canrum is a small, rocky world with a trace atmosphere of methane and krypton: Its surface is mainly composed of magnesium and silicates with deposits of carbon.
Canrum was the site of the warlord Shiagur's defeat by turian peacekeeping forces during the Krogan Rebellions. While this band was not especially powerful, Shiagur was a female warlord - and one of the few remaining fertile females, at that. She had, through viciousness and cunning, parlayed here unique value into a position of power. Krogan males competed for the right to join her band and lie with her.
When Shiagur's death was announced, vengeful male krogan admirers near and far swore both oaths against the participating turian crews. In the end, several thousands of the turian participants were killed in open combat or through assassination. To this day, many krogan proudly proclaim that they have the "blood of Shiagur."
