History[edit | edit source]
During the administration of the Galactic Empire, the planet was home to the Gree Baaker Labor Camp. Various prisoners were sentenced to life imprisonment on the planet, such as Ilaani Soresh and her son Kimali. Kimali had come under the influence of the Alliance to Restore the Republic shortly after graduating from the Imperial Academy, and his mother tried to help him escape and create a new identity. However, when she revealed this to her husband, Rezi Soresh, an Imperial officer, he turned both his wife and his son into the authorities, receiving a promotion for his loyalty to the Empire.
The prisoners from Gree Baaker were later assigned to work duty on the DS-1 Orbital Battle Station—more commonly known as the Death Star—which was being constructed in the Horuz system of the Atrivis sector. With the Death Star's destruction at the Battle of Yavin in 0 ABY, all of the Gree Baaker prisoners assigned there perished. Rezi Soresh was informed of their deaths in the presence of the Galactic Emperor Palpatine shortly after its destruction.
