List of Star Wars Planets (K–L) - Kiva

Kiva is a barren and desolate rocky planet. It was once inhabited by a humanoid species, but the planet's surface was destroyed when Imperial scientist Borborygmus Gog conducted a top-secret experiment over his better judgement. The explosion that ensued killed all of the planet's life. Gog and his partner, Mammon Hoole, barely escaped the destruction. The Empire blamed Hoole for the destruction and he, out of shame, abandoned his first name.

Even though the planet was now barren and uninhabitable, Gog maintained a laboratory on Kiva, where he finished "Project Starscream". Project Starscream was a project like the Dark Troopers, in which the goal was to create for the Imperial military a seemingly indestructible creature. The original prototype creature was destroyed by Gog (aided by two orphans, Tash and Zak) when it eventually turned on him.

Kiva was also inhabited by a race of shadow people, formed by Gog's explosion, who sought vengeance for their genocide. They accused Mammon Hoole of the destruction, but discovered the real criminal was Gog, whom they destroyed with a burst of hate. After their revenge was finished, they disappeared, since they were beings of hate, obsessed with justice. After this incident Kiva was left barren, desolate, and completely uninhabited.
