The First Wavers were an earlier wave of human settlers who settled on the planet Jelucan around 511 BBY. The initial settlers were exiles from another world who refused to break allegiance to their king and arrived in near total poverty, but managed to survive. They were followed by a Second-wave of human and alien settlers, who established mining operations and built urban settlements. First Wavers regarded the Second-wavers as arrogant and materialistic while Second-wavers regarded them as poor and superstitious. Some notable First Wavers included the Imperial Navy Captain Ciena Ree, her father Paron Ree, and her mother Verine Ree. Both the First Wavers and the Second-wavers welcomed the Imperial annexation of Jelucan.
