Yalara was originally inhabited by a primitive species of Yalarans that were not ready to become part of galactic society. To protect them, Jedi Master Broden Kel Verdox installed a cloaking device that masked the whole planet from the galaxy.
Battle of YalaraEdit
In 14 ABY, the Imperial Remnant, under the command of the Disciples of Ragnos, attempted to lay hands on the cloaking device. However, Jedi Scholar Tionne Solusar soon rediscovered the planet with her holocron, and, in order to thwart the Imperial plans, Jedi Knight Jaden Korr was sent to destroy the mechanism. After a short skirmish with Imperial Remnants, Jaden Korr managed ascend to the top of the tower, holding bombs to destroy the device. After a fight with many New Reborns and Noghri on the top, Jaden Korr manged to deploy four bombs around the device and successfully destroyed the cloaking device.
Aftermath of the battleEdit
After returning to the Jedi Academy, Skywalker suspected that Darth Vader, who used many Noghri as slaves and bodyguards, had ordered the Noghri to exterminate the Yalarans and guard the cloaking device. The remaining Noghri on Yalara were returned to Honoghr.
