The year 7 before the Battle of Yavin (BBY) was a period of time during the reign of the Galactic Empire. After having met one another throughout their childhoods, nerf herder Epin Lanmaw and Leia Organa, the Princess of Alderaan, began developing feelings for one another, much to the condescending amusement of Epin's father, Sadvo Lanmaw.
