Geography

The Shrupak temple on Kalee.

Kalee was covered in tropical looking foliage and beaches. Moss-covered canyons and cliffs filled the landscapes. It was apparently a harsh world, and wanting for resources. The Kaleesh housing and buildings were very temple-like. The Kaleesh were highly intelligent bipedal hunter-warriors, hunting predators such as mumuu and karabbacs to make ceremonial cloaks and war masks.

History

Prior to the Clone Wars, the Republic lied to the Kaleesh, telling them the neighboring Bitthævrians were threatening their border. The Kaleesh fought alongside the Jedi against the Bitthævrians in the Kaleesh-Bitthævrian War.

The Republic later sided with the Huks against the Kaleesh in the Huk Wars, defeating the Kaleesh. During the wars, the Kaleesh were winning under the leadership of General Grievous until he was incapacitated in a shuttle crash arranged by the InterGalactic Banking Clan. San Hill paid for a cybernetic suit to be built by the Geonosians for Grievous, who became leader of the Separatist military forces. In return for Grievous's services, the InterGalactic Banking Clan financed the economic recovery of Kalee.
