Copero was a terrestrial planet located in the Copero system of Chiss Space in the Unknown Regions. Under the control of the Chiss Ascendancy, it was home to the Mitth family, one of the Chiss Ruling Families, and thus was located on the Path of the Houses, a hyperlane that ran through the Ascendancy's core territory, along with the homeworlds of many other Ruling Families. Copero was also the location of the Chiss Ascendancy's largest shipyard. The planet had a breathable atmosphere and standard gravity and was predominantly covered in mountains.
After the revelation that Theron Shan was the traitor behind the attacks on Iokath and Umbara, the commander of the Eternal Alliance broadcasted a galaxy-wide message on the HoloNet asking for any information about Shan's location. The message reached Aristocra Saganu from the Chiss Expansionary Defense Force who personally arrived at the Alliance base on Odessen, revealing that Shan was on Copero under protection of Syndic Zenta from House Inrokini. Trying to solve both problems, Saganu asked the Commander to deal with both traitors. After arriving on Copero, Raina Temple from the Chiss Ascendancy and the Commander fought their way through the city, eventually reaching Zenta. After a small confrontation Zenta revealed that Shan betrayed her. Shan, who previously obtained information about Copero, was only after a holomap kept in the ancient ruins that had the location to a superweapon stored by the Sith Emperor. After Shan learned about the superweapon's location, he destroyed the computer terminal. As Shan and Valss, a Force-sensitive Chiss, prepared to leave, the Commander and Temple arrived to stop them, but Valss stayed behind to buy Shan enough time to escape. After the Commander killed Valss he returned to Odessen and tried to figuring out Shan's next move.
