- "City was being lived in by my own people! Yes! Was great majesty, and wonderful comfort. But then, one day city die! Bombs fall from ships flown by people called 'Empire', yes? No reason then – no reason now. But bombs turn city to ruins, and turn my people to homeless nomads."

- "Vader project required total razing of city of Chinshassa on planet Shalyvane to establish a credible background for subject."
- ―Imperial data recording about Shira Brie
In 1 ABY, during Galactic Civil War between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance, Shalyvane was violently attacked by the Galactic Empire, which drove the native Em'liy out of their capital, Chinshassa, turning the population as nomads. The attack was in fact intended to support Imperial agent Shira Brie's backstory when she infiltrated the Rebel Alliance. Shira Brie claimed she was a native of Shalyvane, and that its Human population had been wiped out by the "barbarian" Em'liy and their Imperial allies.
Shira Brie, along with fellow pilots Luke Skywalker, Hanc Thorben and Wald once visited Chinshassa after the Battle of Hoth as a pretended pilgrimage but they were attacked by a large group of Em'liy warriors and forced to escape the planet. After the Battle of the secret armada and the presumed death of Shira Brie, Luke Skywalker returned to Shalyvane. The Em'liy told him the truth of their history and Luke found a holographic message left in Chinshassa by Darth Vader, which revealed Shira as the double-agent she was.
