Korvalus Tower was a residential tower located in the Axial Park district's Archival Square of Coronet City, the capital city of the planet Corellia. Thousands of meters high, the tower was home to thousands of civilians, and in 3641 BBY, during the Battle of Corellia between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, Sith and Imperial forces seized control of the building. They installed a weapon known as the Firestorm Turbolaser in the upper floors of the Korvalus tower and other buildings as part of Operation Firestorm—a Sith plot designed by the fallen Jedi Master Tol Braga to inflict heavy casualties in Axial Park with the Turbolasers. However, the Jedi Knight known as the Hero of Tython flew an assault shuttle to one of the tower's landing pads and infiltrated the building, eliminating the Imperials and Sith within and destroying the Turbolaser.
