Asmeru was a planet outside of the Core Worlds region of the galaxy. On 234th day of the world's sixteenth month, the natives at one point celebrated a festival known as Q'anah in their language. The noble House Elegin were based on the planet, and during the reign of the Galactic Republic they hired a man from the planet Brentaal IV to oversee their security. The man's daughter fell in love with a young Elegin noble who secretly lived as a pirate, and when the daughter too took up piracy she began using the name Q'anah in honor of the Asmeru festival.
