Following the arrival of the Keshiri exile Adari Vaal in 4975 BBY, the Alanciari had developed a militaristic civilization which was designed to resist any invasion by the Sith Tribe living on the neighboring continent of Keshtah Minor. Trainees consisted of both male and female Keshiri youth who were conscripted between the ages of twelve and fifteen. Several trainees participated in the defense of Alanciar during the Sith invasion of Alanciar in 2975 BBY.
