Description[edit | edit source]
Sif-Uwana was a planet of the Sif-Uwana system, within the Colonies region of the galaxy. The individuals native to Sif-Uwana were called the Sif-Uwani, known for their casual way to approach money and management. The world was ruled by the Sif-Uwana Council, an organization composed only of Sif-Uwani.
History[edit | edit source]
Eventually falling within the Northern Dependencies, Sif-Uwana was under Alsakan control during the Alsakan Conflicts, but a few hundred years after the Fifth Alsakan Conflicts ended, the world fell within the Alsakan's opponents' grip, namely the Galactic Republic's.
By 0 BBY, the thief Kels Turkhorn, had acquired a certified Sif-Uwana credit voucher. At some point, the Emperor's Hand Mara Jade, traveled to the planet for business reasons, under the orders of Emperor Palpatine, the leader of the dominant galactic government, the Galactic Empire, which also controlled the territory Sif-Uwana fell in. Around 6 ABY, the smuggler Talon Karrde posed as a Sif-Uwani chief purchasing agent of the Sif-Uwani Council, during diplomatic negatiations on the world Kaal, claiming that the Sif-Uwani Council wished to set up their own harvesting operations on the Unis Islands. Two years later, Karrde would pose again as the Sif-Uwani agent, during an investigation on the planet Varonat.
