Most of the technology from Shevat comes from that of the ancient Zeboim civilization, and the remains of the Babel Tower section of the Eldridge . It is also possible that Shevat obtained its mobile technology from the The Great War against Solaris, when Shevat was nearly destroyed. Modern Shevat is much smaller in comparison to its 500 year prior counterpart, as only the palace block was the only section capable of mobility after losing to Solaris in the Great War. It was still being constructed at the tip of Babel Tower until the Diabolos Collapse occurred.
During The Great War, Shevat was also the enemy of Solaris, along with Nisan and Nimrod ; formulating the Anti-Solaris Alliance. Headed by the Elder council, Shevat was responsible for the death of Sophia during a trade for Miang with Solaris, in an effort to end The Great War. During Xenogears, Shevat aides Nisan again by going to war with Solaris. The main reason why Solaris and Shevat are enemies is that Shevat respects and shelters the Lambs , while Solaris uses them for scientific research and slavery. Unfortunately, except for a pair of Omnigears and the Excalibur II, Shevat's military structure was severely crippled by Solaris' constant attacks on the mobile city just prior to the events in Xenogears. During the resurrection of Deus , Shevat was destroyed, and its remnants crashed near the south pole. However, most of the population, including Queen Zephyr and her Sage advisors, survived.
