Shiva IV was a planet in Wild Space far from the considerations of Galactic Republic or the Galactic Empire until 4 ABY. By galactic standards, its inhabitants were primitive and did not understand Basic.
History[edit | edit source]
A primitive world, it was in constant warfare between the Calian Confederacy and the Twelve Tribes of T'Syriél, until a peace was at last achieved between Aron Peacebringer of the Confederacy and Kéral Longknife of the Twelve Tribes.
The planet was invaded by Imperial General Sk'ar, who recruited many T'Syriél to be stormtroopers and devastated the Calian city K'avor with an anti-matter bomb. Sk'ar was defeated with the help of Leia Organa.
