"When your Rebellion started encroaching on the Mid Rim, the Emperor set his dog loose. You heard about the deaths of Moff Coovern and Minister Khemt?"
"Tragic accidents, as I recall."
"According to my sources, both died at the hand of Darth Vader."
―Chalis reveals Coovern's true fate to Captain Evon[src]

Coovern was a moff in the highest ranks of the Galactic Empire who died shortly after the destruction of the first Death Star at the battle of Yavin. It was officially claimed that Coovern died in a tragic accident, but Governor Everi Chalis learned through her intelligence sources that the moff had truly been killed by the Sith Lord Darth Vader on orders from Emperor Palpatine, as a part of purge of those the Emperor perceived as incompetent due to the loss of the Death Star. Chalis later defected to the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and revealed the true nature of Coovern's death to Captain Micha Evon, leader of the Alliance's Sixty-First Mobile Infantry.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Coovern was first mentioned in the novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, which was written by Alexander Freed and released in 2015.
