Chinshassa by night.
Chinshassa was the capital city of the planet, Shalyvane. Former Rogue Squadron pilot, Shira Brie, once claimed that Chinshassa was her hometown. She told Luke Skywalker that when she was a little girl, a group of savage warriors known as the Em'liy raided Chinshassa and wiped out her people. This was later revealed to be a lie however, as it was proven that the Em'liy were actually the native denizens of Chinshassa, not Shira's people.

In 3 ABY, Luke Skywalker, Shira Brie, Captain Thorben and Wald arrived in Chinshassa to assist Shira in a personal, private mission. They encountered a group of Em'liy warriors at a sacred site known as the Circle of Kavaan. Believing the Em'liy to be raiders, Luke and the others aided Shira in driving them away from Chinshassa.

Behind the scenes

The name "Chinshassa" might be a reference to the real-world capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kinshasa.
