During the Galactic Civil War Altikar IV became the home to the Human Jedi Jhor-Kai. Through the Force, he appeared in the dreams of a Twi'lek Force-sensitive named Sha'lia. She eventually escaped from her owner and traveled to the planet with the aid of fellow escapee Goort. On the planet, Jhor-Kai trained Sha'lia in the Force, and Goort in starship piloting. After a short time, however, Imperials tracked the Jedi to the planet and attacked. Jhor-Kai was killed by stormtroopers buying time for his students to escape the planet.
