"Sadly, Deputy Minister Jerec perished this morning, in a Death Watch bombing on Kalevala."
Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine[src]

Kalevala was a planet located in the Mandalore system,[2] which was positioned in the Mandalore sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories.[1] It was the homeworld of Duchess Satine Kryze, leader of the New Mandalorians, and Senator Tal Merrik,[3] who represented Kalevala at the start of the Clone Wars.[2]

A bombing took place on Kalevala while Duchess Satine was on Coruscant, arguing against a proposed Republic intervention on Mandalore to fight Death Watch. Jerec, Deputy Minister of the New Mandalorians, was among those killed in the attack.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Obi-Wan Kenobi was reunited with an old friend: the Duchess Satine of Kalevala."
―News reel narrator[src]

Kalevala was first mentioned in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia,[5] a three-volume Star Wars Legends reference book edited by Bob Vitas[6] that was released on December 9, 2008.[7] It became canon when it was mentioned in the opening news reel of "Voyage of Temptation," the thirteenth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' second season.[8]

There are two known pronunciations of Kalevala. In "Voyage of Temptation," the world's name was pronounced "Kale-vah-lah,"[8] while in the subsequent episode, "Duchess of Mandalore," it was instead pronounced "Kah-lay-vah-lah."[4]

Kalevala shares its name with the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala.
