- "There is a civil war going on, if you hadn't noticed. Supplies and equipment are going to be in short supply for the civilian population. The Darklighters saw this coming and have been accumulating a cache of supplies to help get though these times."
- "Desert Demons. I couldn't do anything to stop them, and they are cleaning the place out."
Sometime following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, the cave was overtaken by Desert Demons. Draci, the guard of the cache, tasked a spacer with clearing the cave and accessing its five inventory terminals in under fifteen minutes. The spacer succeeded, thus effectively restoring the cache for the Darklighters.
Around the same time, Jabba the Hutt's sadistic EV-series supervisor droid EV-9D9 tasked an individual with destroying three droids who escaped Jabba's Palace and took refuge within the cave. These droids included an R3-series astromech droid named R3-B57, a B1-Series battle droid named BD-34, and an RA-7 protocol droid named RA-316. According to EV-9D9's punitive instructions, the spacer planted pain bolts to the droids before destroying them.
