Devaron was a planet of low mountains and deep valleys linked by thousands of rivers. It was near the Corellian Trade Spine. The planet had strict capital punishment and a matriarchal government.

History

Only Devarionian females were allowed to participate in government. Devaron joined the Galactic Republic in 22,000 BBY; it would be represented in the Galactic Senate jointly by Elsah'sai'Moro and Vien'sai'Malloc during the final days of the ancient democracy. However, in 22 BBY, Elsah was assassinated by Aurra Sing who had been hired by Vien, who was herself arrested (and presumably executed) for both her assassination attempt and her secret sponsoring of a Separatist base in the Blue Mountains. The planet, under President Aven'sai'Ulrahk, continued to support the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, and came under the sway of the Galactic Empire following the war's end.

Around 5 BBY, it was the site of an uprising against the Empire, which was put down by the Imperial-aligned Devaronian Army, led by Kardue'sai'Malloc, whom was thus called the "Butcher of Montellian Serat". To escape persecution, the Butcher fled to Tatooine and changed his name to Labria.

Around 22 BBY,[1] bounty hunter Cad Bane attacked a Republic Outpost on the planet in order to capture Jedi Master Bolla Ropal, who was the keeper of the Kyber memory crystal, which contained a list of Force-sensitive children in the Galaxy. Later, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano arrived in the Star Destroyer Resolute in order to reclaim the holocron. In the following battle, the Resolute engaged Bane's Munificent-class star frigates. Bane managed to escape, but the bounty hunter fleet was destroyed.[2]

In 19 ABY, Boba Fett captured Labria and took him to Devaron, where the Butcher was executed.

The planet was denied membership in the New Republic due to its violent capital punishment. During the Yuuzhan Vong War, the planetary government of Devaron attempted to appease the Yuuzhan Vong by offering Jedi Knight Hivrekh'wao'cheklev, who was able to escape.

Some female Devaronians wished to join the Galactic Alliance and proposed a termination to feeding criminals to the quarra. However, they met with strong resistance from traditionalists.
