"He may be mythologized, but he's earned his reputation. I could tell tales of how he slaughtered children, the Dhen-Moh genocides—"
―Everi Chalis, to Hazram Namir, on Darth Vader[1]

Dhen-Moh was a location where the Galactic Empire ordered genocides.[2] The Sith Lord Darth Vader notably took part in the atrocity, which the defecting Imperial Governor Everi Chalis mentioned as an example of Vader's reputation to Hazram Namir, a First Sergeant in the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry,[1] in 3 ABY.[3]

Some weeks after the Battle of Endor[2] in 4 ABY,[4] Yrica Quell, an Imperial pilot who had defected to the Alliance's successor, the New Republic, reflected on Operation: Cinder, a genocide ordered by the Emperor himself. Quell considered the difference between the Dhen-Moh genocides and Cinder as that between ruthlessness and cruelty.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Dhen-Moh was first mentioned in the 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, written by Alexander Freed.[1]
