The system fell within the borders of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, a conflict between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and was situated within the territory of the New Republic in 12 ABY.
Behind the scenes
Although the StarWars.com Online Companion to The Essential Atlas placed the system within the Luuq sector, the 2012 reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare depicted it as being located in the Shiwal sector, which is more consistent with the system's earlier depiction on a map within The Essential Atlas.
