The Balnab civilization later found itself enslaved by a tyrant calling himself Albee Dewaw, who appeared before the natives as an enormous hologram. Terrified by the superior technology of Dewaw, the Balnab obeyed his every whim.
At around 21 BBY, C-3PO and R2-D2 arrived on the planet shortly after a misadventure on Patitite Pattuna and revealed Albee Dewaw to be a projection controlled by a group of DUM-series pit droids. Upon learning this, the Balnabs promptly attacked their droid masters, while C-3PO and R2-D2 quietly left the scene.
