During the Clone Wars, Shumavar was located within Separatist space and was the site of a battle, in which famous Shockball player and Separatist hero Kob Mondray fought. Many years later, the planet was attacked by Nagai invaders in 4 ABY. In 24 ABY, it hosted a trade conference where the trader Bornan Thul had planned to meet with Nolaa Tarkona, the leader of the Diversity Alliance, to deliver a parcel. However, Thul never turned up once he realized that the parcel contained the coordinates for a storehouse containing a Human-specific plague that Tarkona planned to release into the galaxy.
