The Minavar system was a star system[2] located within the Outer Rim Territories' Bheriz sector.[1] At some point, an expedition that included the Human infant Reina Gale and her family established a colony within the system.[2] By 0 ABY,[3] however, the colony was ravaged by a virus that killed nearly its entire population, including Gale's parents, and the girl was left in the care of her uncle.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The Minavar system was first mentioned in the 1994 roleplaying game article "It's a Gambler's Life." The article was written by Anthony P. Russo and published in the fourth issue of the Star Wars Adventure Journal magazine.[2]

When the 1998 Star Wars Encyclopedia gave the system an entry, its name was misspelled as "Mindavar system."[4] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Minavar system within grid square U-10.[5]

Since The Essential Atlas states the Alignment was absorbed by the Imperial Remnant in 12 ABY, it can therefore be deduced that Gale's parents died in no later than 0 ABY.
