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.
In 25,000 BBY, a Ssi-ruuk experimental hyperdrive vessel crashed on the planet. In approximately 4000 BBY, the planet was colonized by Humans. A civil war later erupted between Garosian and inhabitants of the neighboring planet Sundari. The war was ended with a treaty in 118 BBY, but restarted in 87 BBY.
Garos IV 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.
In 6 BBY, the Galactic Empire established an official presence on Garos IV and ended violently the conflit, executing hundreds of activists on both sides. Garosian diplomat Tork Winger was soon appointed Imperial governor of Garos IV. Most of Imperial forces later left Garos but an anti-Imperial resistance movement emerged on the planet.
In 4 ABY, the site of the failed Ssi-ruuvi Hyperdrive system was found. The Garosian resistance participated in the battle when the planet was liberated by the New Republic following the Thrawn campaign. Garos IV joined the New Republic after the battle.
