Lore question: Cademimu

Hey everybody!

I really need to her others people opinions about this.
I started to create my character's background recently and I wanted her to be native of a city planet - excluding Coruscant and Nar Shaddaa.

So I thought of Cademimu.

There is a problem though, my head is full of doubts: what is Cademimu, exactly?
Would it make any sense saying that my character was born and grown up on Cademimu?
My main concern is creating a background that respects the lore, it has to be something believable.
I'd like to avoid people looking at me like this O__O when I answer I come from Cademimu during an RP session... I have to make sure what I say makes sense.

I checked TOR WIKI and this is what's written about Cademimu:

Cademimu is a shadowport in Cademimu sector along the Celanon Spur. Shadowports are spaceports used by smugglers, ship thieves and other criminally linked spacers. Quite often, shadowports are hidden to provide protection from authorities, with their locations only known to reputable spacers.[1]]
A shadowport? It actually looked way bigger than a shadowport to me...
I'm very confused.

Thank you in advance to anybody who will try to clarify this matter!

Cross-referencing with Wookieepedia, Cademimu is a planet which is (or perhaps simply contains?) the shadowport, so it seems a plausible enough place to claim as your character's homeworld. It would be like playing a character from the golden age of piracy who had grown up in Port Royal.

Canon tells us that shadowports are typically just the ports themselves, not the entire space it occupies. Wookieepedia is a great source for Canonical citations, but I always recommend following up by personally reviewing those sources first-hand. Star Wars Canon is a treasure trove of tidbits that are never documented on the wiki.
