"Our claim to these stars is natural and ancient. Our eyes have owned them since the beginning of our days. They are alive in our legends. They call to us in our dreams. We draw our strength from the All. The purity of the All inspires us to perfection. Our claim to these stars is not a shallow thing of greed, or politics, or ambition. It is not a claim we would ever surrender."
―Nil Spaar[1]

The Duskhan League, also known as the Yevethan Protectorate, was a theocracy of the Yevethan species in the Koornacht Cluster that sat on the periphery of the Core Worlds and the Deep Core of the galaxy. The emblem of the government was a double circle of three pointed stars on a scarlet background.


The Yevetha Protectorate declared its independence as the Duskhan League during the Yevethan Uprising against the Galactic Empire, the League was led for twelve years by Nil Spaar from the capital world of N'zoth. It consisted of a political theocracy of pure Yevethan colony worlds.[2] By 16 ABY, the League included thirteen worlds in the Koornacht Cluster, including N'zoth, Wakiza, Zhina, Tizon, Z'fell, and Faz.

In 16 ABY, the League forcefully colonized several worlds in the Koornacht Cluster after exterminating their non-Yevetha populations. A series of political and military engagements with the New Republic military became known as the Black Fleet Crisis, culminating in the Battle of N'zoth. The world was then subjugated by the New Republic and monitored until it was razed a decade later by the Yuuzhan Vong.



The Duskhan League was an theocracy that emerged in 4 ABY during the Yevethan Uprising against the Galactic Empire, and was led by the Darama, a spiritual leader for the whole Yevetha that headed a strict hierarchical system and operated as the chief of state, and was treated with the greatest respect. Politically, Yevethan government was led by a Viceroy, who also operated as the prime minster for the Duskhan League. Departments of governance, commerce, science, and culture were led by Proctors, and supported by various guilds. The Darama and Viceroy became over time linked positions, connecting Yevethan spirituality and politics.[1]

Foreign policy[]

"I don't think there's any question but that Nil Spaar represents more worlds, a larger population, greater material riches, and a more advanced industrial-technological base than anyone who's come to Imperial City in the last twelve years. And he probably knows it, too."
―Leia Organa Solo[3]

Nil Spaar meets Leia Organa Solo.

Thirteen years after the uprising, the isolationist regime opened talks with the New Republic by bringing a Yevethan delegation to Coruscant, but it was in truth a ruse to cause mistrust of Chief of State Leia Organa Solo in the New Republic Senate and to gather intelligence on the New Republic. Nil Spaar rejected membership into the New Republic, instead proposing an alliance of sorts, despite all of Organa Solo's attempts to persuade him of the benefits of full membership. He used stories of Imperial brutality against the Yevetha to justify their wariness and desire for independence.[3]

"Apparently the Yevetha have a straightforward method of dealing with trespassers—they execute them on sight."
