Kanz sector

Outer Rim Territories[1]

Native species



Kanz sector was a sector located in the Outer Rim Territories. It was home to both the Lorrdian and Argazdan species from Lorrd and Argazda respectively.

During the Mandalorian Wars in 3,970 BBY, the Argazdan Myrialites under Provisional Governor Myrial of Argazda seceeded from the Republic and established the Argazdan Redoubt as an independent state. Myrialite forces invaded planets that resisted her reign over the Kanz sector including Lorrd during the "Kanz Disorders". Due to their support for the Amaltannan resistance, Myrial had the Lorrdians enslaved.

For three centuries, the Myrialites ruled the Kanz Sector. Any attempt by the Republic and the Jedi Order to intervene was cut short by the various conflicts of the Old Sith Wars and the resurgent threat of the Sith Empire during the Great Galactic War. The Lorrdian captives, forbidden by their masters from speaking aloud, developed a form of nonverbal communication which is still in use in the current era.

In 3,670 BBY, a Jedi and Republic task force under Jedi Master Mari-Elan Nora intervened and defeated the Argazdan slave lords after dogged fighting. However, by then, more than 5 billion had been killed including 500 million Lorrdians. During the Clone Wars, Kanz was represented in the Galactic Senate by Nee Alavar.[2]By the time of the Galactic Civil War, most contempory Lorrdians and Argazdans got on well since most Argazdans regarded the actions of the Myrialites as shameful.
