Kooriva was the homeworld of Separatist leader Passel Argente and the adopted homeworld of his species, the Koorivar. It was located in the Inner Rim Territories.
Once ruled by the Rakata, Kooriva was settled by the Koorivar in 5,032 BBY, only to be ousted by an indigenous species in 2,032 BBY. The Koorivar won back control of the planet in 1,532 BBY. The planet was part of the Corporate Alliance and represented in the Galactic Senate by Passel Argente. During the Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic forces retook the world from the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
