Viewing Force-sensitivity as an undesirable fluke, the Khommites endeavored to remove the trait from their species. Despite this fact the trait would occasionally surface, as in the case of Dorsk 81, a Khommite Jedi Knight.
The Khommites were rigidly conformist in their views, and saw any disruption of the status quo as a threat to their way of life.
In 12 ABY, Admiral Daala ordered an attack on Khomm, when it was discovered that the Jedi Dorsk 81 and Kyp Durron had visited the planet. Colonel Cronus carried out the order with Crimson Command, devastating the planet and its population, forcing the Khommites to do something they had not done in centuries—adapt.
