"Shu-Torun is an intensely courtly culture."
―Princess Trios, to Darth Vader[src]

Shu-Torun was a volcanic, resource-rich planet located in the Mid Rim region of the galaxy and under the control of the Galactic Empire. It was ruled by a royal family which controlled the planet's ore-supplying nobles that held to a distinct obsession of courtly rituals and pageantry.[1]


After the destruction of the Death Star, the world was visited by none other than the Sith Lord Darth Vader, who came to ensure that the King of Shu-Torun and his people remained faithful and loyal servants of the Empire. After the king showed his true colors as a traitor to the Empire, he, along with his guards and two eldest children, Prince Monthan and Princess Hollian, were killed by Vader's assassin droids0-0-0 and BT-1. The Dark Lord then used the Force to crown the king's surviving child, Princess Trios, as the new Queen of Shu-Torun.[1] After promising her the support of the Empire to keep the ore-dukes in line, Vader left her alone in the throne room with only the warning that she should not forget that she and her people served the Empire.[1]
