"Sadly, Deputy Minister Jerec perished this morning in a Death Watch bombing on Kalevala."
Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine[8]

Kalevala was a planet located in the Mandalore system, within the Mandalore sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories, that was the homeworld of House Kryze. It was the birthplace of Duchess Satine Kryze, leader of the New Mandalorians and the Council of Neutral Systems during the Clone Wars.


Kalevala was the homeworld of Duchess Satine Kryze, leader of the New Mandalorians, and Senator Tal Merrik,[5] who represented Kalevala[2] in the Senate of the Galactic Republic[9] by the year 21 BBY,[10] up until his death that same year.[9] Shortly afterwards, while Duchess Satine was on the Republic capital of Coruscant arguing against a proposed Republic intervention on Mandalore, the Mandalorian homeworld, to fight the Death Watch, a Mandalorian splinter group that opposed her pacifistic faction, New Mandalorian Deputy Minister Jerec was killed in a Death Watch bombing on Kalevala.[8]

Behind the scenes[]

"Obi-Wan Kenobi was reunited with an old friend: the Duchess Satine of Kalevala."
―News reel narrator[9]

Kalevala was first mentioned in the opening news reel of "Voyage of Temptation," the thirteenth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' second season,[9] which originally aired on February 5, 2010.[11] The planet was originally introduced in the Star Wars Legends continuity in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, a three-volume 2008 reference book edited by Bob Vitas.[12]

There are two known pronunciations of Kalevala. In "Voyage of Temptation," the world's name was pronounced "Kale-vah-lah,"[9] while in the subsequent episode, "Duchess of Mandalore," it was instead pronounced "Kah-lay-vah-lah."[8]

The planet Kalevala shares its name with the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala.
