At some point by 3637 BBY, several astromech droids serving aboard a starship of an individual in the Rhuvia system turned on their owner. A holorecording depicting the droids' revolt later came into the possession of the future commander of the Eternal Alliance, who dispatched a companion to the system in order to investigate the event.
Behind the scenes
The Rhuvia system was introduced in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry, which placed it in grid square L-5. The system was later mentioned in Shadow of Revan, a 2014 expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, a 2011 massively multiplayer online roleplaying game developed by BioWare. In the expansion, the Rhuvia system was used as a possible location for players to assign their companions on individual quests.

- Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Given this principle, this article makes a similar basic assumption for Rhuvian fizz in relation to the Rhuvia system.
- Star Wars: The Old Republic's lead designer, Charles Boyd, the majority of the events of the digital expansion Shadow of Revan take place in approximately 3637 BBY. The Crew Skill mission "Astromech Revolt" is part of the Shadow of Revan expansion and therefore also takes place around that year. — According to
