Description: Desevro was an astronomical object located in the Tion Cluster of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. It was also located on the Perlemian Trade Route. It was contested territory during the Galactic Civil War.
Four years after destruction of Alderaan, a battle occurred above the planet, when the Galactic Empire attacked a New Republic convoy trying to sneak through the debris field on its way to Project Starhawk's secret base. Titan Squadron were to follow the convoy and allow them to jump to hyperspace to calculate all possible destinations along their trajectory, however the mission was foiled when a local Imperial II-class Star Destroyer, the Tormentor, arrived and attacked the convoy. Titan Squadron were able to gain the sector coordinates, but all New Republic forces as well as the Tormentor were destroyed.
Before the Galactic Republic was formed, Desevro was the capital of the Livien League before being conquered by Xim the Despot c. 25,130 BBY, and became one of his two capital worlds, along with Argai. In 25,100 BBY, Xim ordered a secret vault built on the Swampland estate of his Desevrar chamberlain. Desevro was named as the Fourth Throne of Xim.
After Xim's death later in 25,100 BBY, the planet became capital of the Honorable Union of Desevro & Tion, an oligarchy ruled by the Thirty-seven Families, the nobles of Desevro. The Union maintained an intense rivalry with the Kingdom of Cron.
In 24,000 BBY, the Union made war with the young Galactic Republic. This proved its undoing. The Republic dropped volleys of pressure bombs on Desevro, and the Desevrars gave Coruscant the same treatment. After nearly a century of fighting, the Republic won the war by turning the Hutts against the Union, allowing them to invade the Tion Cluster. This led to the Union's end as an independent state, and with its situation desperate, Desevro offered its unconditional surrender to the Republic. It was refused: the Republic opted to sterilize Desevro as an object lesson to the rest of the Tionese.
The worlds of the Union joined the Republic by 23,900 BBY as a member sector with Tion as the capital; Desevro, however, bitterly refused to follow the crowd and remained proudly independent. As a result, the planet became a political backwater even for the Outer Rim and its cities fell into a precipitous decay. Desevrars, as the native Humans were called, were extremely speciesist, calling all non-humans Hutts.
During the Cold War, the Sith Empire placed Reaver Station at Desevro, a port for entertainment to be used for leave.
During the Clone Wars, Desevro was aligned with the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
