Description: Shiva IV was a planet in Wild Space far from the considerations of Galactic Republic or the Galactic Empire until 4 ABY. By galactic standards, its inhabitants were primitive and did not understand Basic.
A primitive world, it was in constant warfare between the Calian Confederacy and the Twelve Tribes of T'Syriél, until a peace was at last achieved between Aron Peacebringer of the Confederacy and Kéral Longknife of the Twelve Tribes.
The planet was invaded by Imperial General Sk'ar, who recruited many T'Syriél to be stormtroopers and devastated the Calian city K'avor with an anti-matter bomb. Sk'ar was defeated with the help of Leia Organa.
Illyriaqüm was the capital city of the planet Shiva IV. It was the location of Peacebringer's palace. General Bentilais san Sk'ar attempted to destroy the city with an anti-matter bomb, but was stopped by Aron Peacebringer, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian, Kéral Longknife, and Chewbacca. The Imperials were repelled and General Sk’ar was killed while trying to escape. Afterwards a victory celebration was held at the city's Great Hall.
The Great Hall was a magnificent and gargantuan room within Peacebringer's palace on Shiva IV used for assemblies and celebrations. It was here that a celebration occurred when the Galactic Empire was defeated on Shiva IV.
K'avor was a remote city on Shiva IV. It was destroyed by the Galactic Empire using an anti-matter bomb, resulting in the Cherenkov effect.
Sk'ar's hidden base
Bentilais san Sk'ar's hidden base was the headquarters of the Imperial strike force on Shiva IV. It was built inside the ruins of an ancient fortress.
Calian Confederacy was the name used by the Human population of Shiva IV to describe their alliance.
The Calian Confederacy stood opposite the Twelve Tribes of T'Syriél for many generations, locked in a ceaseless civil war until their respective leaders, Kéral Longknife and Aron Peacebringer, united the two groups.
The Humans of the Calian Confederacy were known for their battle strength, a physical reaction to combat that made them more ferocious as the battle grew more intense.
Twelve Tribes of T'Syriél
The Twelve Tribes of T'Syriél were a coalition of representatives from the T'Syriél species on the planet, Shiva IV.
For years, the Twelve Tribes were at war with their Human neighbors, the warlords of the Calian Confederacy. In 3 ABY, a truce was declared between the two factions and a legal ceremony known as the Concordat of Peace took place in the capital city of Illyriaqüm.
A T'Syriél representative named Kéral Longknife forged a blood pact with the Calian warlord, Aron Peacebringer.
