A devastating battleEdit
The planet Shumari was the site of a devastating battle in which Jedi survivors of Order 66 clashed with Imperial stormtroopers lead by Darth Vader. While the battle raged planetside, Imperial star destroyers positioned above the planet subjected it to heavy orbital bombardment which, much like the destruction of Taris four millennia earlier, devastated the surface of the planet completely, rendering it uninhabitable.
Duel on ShumariEdit
Years later, in 1 ABY, Vader returned to Shumari with Tao, who was dying from wounds inflicted upon him by Vader in a duel. It was Vader's intention to let Tao see his home planet one last time. Suddenly Vader was attacked by a vengeful Tusken Raider who had survived Anakin Skywalker's massacre of the Tusken Raiders of the Valley of the Spirits tribe in 22 BBY. The Tusken, who had sworn to hunt down Vader and kill him, had learned Basic and been trained in lightsaber combat. Using a modified gaffi stick, he managed to knock Vader down.
Before the Tusken managed to deliver the final blow, Tao struggled to his feet and used his last strength to defend the Dark Lord. Tao managed to ward of the attack and kill the Tusken, thus saving Vader's life. Seconds later, the Shumari Jedi collapsed on the ground, dead from his wounds. Vader raised a monument to the Shumari Jedi which was to be the last hand-made object to be made on the planet.
