The Pantoran Civil War was a fierce, albeit brief, conflict fought in early 21 BBY over Chairman Papanoida's decision not to join the Separatist Alliance during the Clone Wars. The war was fought between forces loyal to Papanoida, and the rebels wanting to secede form the Republic and join the Confederacy. The war was a decisive victory for the loyalist forces, helped by indirect assistance from the Republic Navy in exposing covert Separatist assistance to the forces of the Duras family.
