During the Age of the Empire, the Hyborean Moon was the site of an Imperial black-site prison. The Imperial Security Bureau Agent Romwell Krass Junior regarded the Hyborean Moon as a cushy posting for his family. Krass and his family lived in a comfortable home on the shore of a hot spring lake. He also arranged for his cronies to be transferred there.
Following the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance became the New Republic. The New Republic dispatched a fleet to attack the Imperial presence on the Hyborean Moon. Krass' family was killed when New Republic starships bombed the civilian structures. Krass barely managed to escaped on a starship as rebel forces stormed the prison.
For a month, Romwell Krass Junior drifted through space grieving the loss of his family. He also became an alcoholic and took to drinking. Instead of reporting for duty to the Imperial capital of Coruscant, Krass traveled to Maz Kanata's castle on the planet Takodana. There, he became involved in a fight with a New Republic pilot. The fight was broken up by Maz Kanata's droid ME-8D9 who locked the two belligerents in Maz's dungeons. Maz allowed the two belligerents to leave but advised Krass to make peace with his grief.

- ↑ Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the Battle of Endor during the year 4 ABY. Shattered Empire, Part IV, which shows Shara Bey and Kes Dameron settling on Yavin 4, takes place three months after the Battle of Endor, and Galactic Atlas places Bey and Dameron's move to Yavin 4 in the year 5 ABY.
The novel Aftermath says that months have passed since the Battle of Endor. Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath; therefore, the events of the former take place at least four months after the Battle of Endor. Since three months after the Battle of Endor is part of 5 ABY, as shown with Bey and Dameron's settling on Yavin 4, events of Life Debt must take place in 5 ABY at the earliest. On the other hand, the Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, leading to the conclusion that Life Debt is set in 5 ABY.
