The War on Shu-Torun was a civil war fought on the Mid Rim planet Shu-Torun in the year 0 ABY. Queen Trios, the recently appointed monarch of the Kingdom of Shu-Torun, faced an uprising among the ore-dukes of her homeworld. Trios' loyalist faction defeated the insurrectionists, led by Duke Rubix, with the military support of the Galactic Empire.
Following the destruction of both Alderaan by the Galactic Empire and the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance, Sith Lord Darth Vader trraveled to Shu-torun. His mission was to reinforce their cooperation in supplying the Empire with ore. There, Vader was invited by Princess Trios, daughter of Shu-torun's king to a celebration. In truth, the king and his children planned to assassinate Vader.
During the celebration, the King's guards attacked Vader but were cut down the Sith Lord. Trios, claiming that the ore-dukes were behind, led Vader into a shaft. Lava came down from the shaft and Vader carried her. After surving, Trios attempted to shoot Vader, but lost her right hand. During this time, Vader sent two assassin droids, 0-0-0 and BT-1 to eliminate the King and his two other children, Prince Monthan and Princess Hollian. Vader gave Trios a small remnant of Alderaan and named her the new monarch of Shu-Torun.
Following Vader's defeat of Commander Karbin at the battle of Vrogas Vas, Vader was sent by Emperor Palpatine to assist Grand General Cassio Tagge and Queen Trios in dealing with the ore-dukes rebellion.
