"Teams of Sith under Master Braga's command are setting up turbolasers in the buildings' topmost floors."
Doctor Nasan Godera to the Hero of Tython[1]

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,[1] and in 3640 BBY,[2] during the Battle of Corellia between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire, the latter's forces seized control of the building.[1]

They installed weapons known as the Firestorm Turbolaser in the upper floors of several buildings, including Korvalus Tower, 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 Korvalus Tower, eliminating the Imperials and Sith within and destroying the Firestorm Turbolaser. The top floor featured large red carpets and indoor potted plants, as with other buildings in the city at the time.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Korvalus Tower appeared in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game released by BioWare in 2011, as a class-restricted phase for the Jedi Knight class mission "Firestorm."[1]

  2. SWTOR mini.png Forums: Dear Story Team, What Year Are We Currently In? on The Old Republic's official website (backup link) and Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia establish that the Battle of Ilum and the end of Act III for the class storylines of Star Wars: The Old Republic occur in late 3640 BBY and prior to the events of The Old Republic: Annihilation, which is also set in 3640 BBY per The Essential Reader's Companion. Annihilation establishes that the Treaty of Coruscant collapsed approximately eighteen months prior, or in 3641 BBY, and as Act III occurs after the treaty's collapse, the act begins sometime between 3641 BBY and 3640 BBY.
