"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]

HistoryEdit

Kalevala was the homeworld of humans Duchess Satine Kryze, leader of the New Mandalorians, and Senator Tal Merrik,[4] who represented Kalevala[2] in the Senate of the Galactic Republic[6] by the year 21 BBY,[7] up until his death that same year.[6] Shortly afterwards, while Duchess Satine was on the Republic capital of Coruscant arguing against a proposed Republic intervention on Mandalore, the Mandalorian homeworld, to fight the Death Watch, a Mandalorian splinter group that opposed her pacifistic faction, New Mandalorian Deputy Minister Jerec was killed in a Death Watch bombing on Kalevala.[5]

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 opening news reel of "Voyage of Temptation," the thirteenth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' second season,[6] which originally aired on February 5, 2010.[8] The planet received its first mention in the Star Wars Legends continuity in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia,[9] a three-volume reference book edited by Bob Vitas[10] that was released on December 9, 2008.[11]

There are two known pronunciations of Kalevala. In "Voyage of Temptation," the world's name was pronounced "Kale-vah-lah,"[6] while in the subsequent episode, "Duchess of Mandalore," it was instead pronounced "Kah-lay-vah-lah."[5]
