Chevin was a big planet with big trees and big animals. The Chevin were the dominant species there. They were big. The Chevins were primarily nomadic herdsmen, but some cities were formed. The Chevin liked to keep non-Chevin slaves. Pretty much everybody left Vinsoth alone, since the Chevin were scary. Occasionally some Senator or something would declare that they need to free their slaves, but nobody ever did anything about it. Vinsoth's main export was soup.
Ephant Mon was from Vinsoth.
