- "Came up to me on Bamayar. After we took that stinking port—"
"Chenodra. Came up to me during the cleanup. Thought I'd messed up bad, with what Ajax and me had done. Howl started talking about the buildings instead—something about the arches and columns."
- ―Twitch and Brand
Bamayar was a terrestrial astronomical object located in the Mid Rim. The Imperial cargo pilot Bodhi Rook once had feelings for an individual on Bamayar, who eventually rejected him. The pilot reminisced his love interest on Bamayar during the Battle of Scarif in 0 BBY, Where he participated on the side of the Rebel Alliance.
During the Alliance's Mid Rim offensive, which began around 1 ABY, the Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry occupied the Ducal Palace and the stench ridden port Chenodra. During the cleanup at Chenodra, Captain Micha Evon, better known as Howl, approached the rebel soldier Twitch, who was convinced she and another soldier named Maximian Ajax had made a big mistake during their time on Bamayar, and began talking to her about the buildings there and its arches and columns. Hazram Namir, a First Sergeant in the 61st, looked back at the fighting on Bamayar while on the planet Haidoral Prime in 3 ABY. Later that year, following the Howl's funeral, Twitch brought up a story about the captain at Chenodra on Bamayar.
