Umbara, known as the "Shadow World" due to the lack of sunlight on its surface, was a planet located within the Expansion Region. Resting within the occluding Ghost Nebula, Umbara was cut off from the rest of the galaxy. This resulted in the development of advanced technologies that far exceed the galactic standard by the native Umbarans. During the initial stages of the Clone Wars, Umbara was a member of the Galactic Republic, though it would defect to the Confederacy of Independent Systems following the assassination of senator Mee Deechi, who had represented the planet within the Galactic Senate. In response, the Grand Army of the Republic would launch a successful invasion of the Shadow People's homeworld.

During this invasion Anakin Skywalker was called back to Coruscant at Chancellor Palpatine's request. Jedi General Pong Krell took over the 501st in Anakin's absence. After Krell betrays the 501st by telling them the 212th is actually Umbarans disguised as Clones, and sends them to the Rex realized Krell was working for the Separatists. Dogma, feeling betrayed, kills Krell while they are in custody of the Clones, and is taken into custody.
