Unidentified Garos IV species (formerly)
Garos IV was a pleasant world of forests, mountains and oceans. Its population was centered on a single continent in three major centers. It was most well known for the University of Garos.
The indigenous humanoid civilization of Garos IV was wiped out by a groundquake in prehistoric times. In 25,000 BBY, a Ssi-ruuk experimental hyperdrive vessel crashed on the planet. In approximately 4,000 BBY, the planet was colonized by Humans. Its war with neighboring Sundari was ended with a treaty in 118 BBY, but restarted in 87 BBY. The planet allowed Refugee Relief Movement settlement in 22 BBY, shortly before the Clone Wars. Garos IV was the site of a victory for the Confederacy of Independent Systems over the Galactic Republic during the early stages of the Clone Wars.
During the reign of the Republic, the Garosian-Sundar truce was constantly violated, until the Galactic Empire took control. In 4 ABY, the site of the failed Ssi-ruuvi Hyperdrive system was found. The Garosians sided with the Rebel Alliance and participated in the battle when the planet was liberated by the New Republic following the Thrawn campaign. The popularity of the University on planet caused an economic upswing during the years before the Yuuzhan Vong.
The Hibridium Cloaking device was produced on Garos IV.
