The Kanz Disorders (3,9703,670 BBY) was a conflict that took place in the Kanz sector in the Outer Rim Territories during the Old Republic era.



During the Mandalorian Wars, the Argazdans of Argazda came under the influence of a secessionist movement known as the Myrialites led by Provisional Governor Myrial. Perceiving the Galactic Republic as "corrupt and faithless", they launched a violent revolt and annexed the Kanz sector; renaming it the Argazdan Redoubt.[1]. In the ensuing conflict, the Myrialites invaded and annexed several planets within the region including the Lorrdians of Lorrd.[2][3].

In retaliation for the Lorrdians' support for the Amaltannan resistance, Myrial had the Lorrdian species enslaved.The enslaved Lorrdians were forbidden by their masters from communicating with each other.[1] As a result, they were forced to develop a system of subtle gestures, facial expressions, and body postures to talk to each other. This nonverbal form of communication would still be in use millennia later, during the Galactic Civil War.[4][2][3]

The Myrialites established a totalitarian regime that would last for three hundred years.[2][3][1] Any attempt made by the Galactic Republic and the Jedi to end the disorders was cut short by the Mandalorian Wars followed by the more devastating Jedi and Sith Civil Wars.[3] The Republic was further preoccupied by a G0-T0 droid revolt in the Gordian Reach in 3,946 BBY.[5].

Towards the end of the Kanz Disorders, the last ruling Argazdan Regent Torphceris sought to maintain his power in the face of opposition from the Republic.[1] In desperation, he betrayed his beliefs by making a pact with a demonic "alien" "artisan-shaper". The alien had come to the known Galaxy from the Intergalactic Void and displayed much expertise in bioengineering.[1] Torphceris used the alien's expertise to create a bioengineered monster which was buried beneath the legendary Slave Pits of Lorrd. These Slave Pits were constructed at the cost of the lives of thousands of Lorrdian slaves.[1]

Around 3,670 BBY, the Lorrdian Jedi Knight Mari-Elan Nora led a joint Jedi and Republic task force to liberate the Kanz Sector. Despite the Great Galactic War, Nora had enough support in the Galactic Senate for military intervention. Despite dogged resistance from the Argazdans, the Jedi and Republic forces defeated the Argazdan Redoubt.[1]Over 500 million Lorrdians, and nearly five billion other people, were killed during the Kanz Disorders, until the Republic and the Jedi brought the Kanz Sector back under control.[4][2][3]

By the time of the Imperial era, most Argazdans regarded their ancestors' actions in the Kanz Disorders especially the enslavement of the Lorrdians as shameful. Most Lorrdians and Argazdans in the sector got on well despite the repercussions of the conflict. [1]
