- "I know why a slave revolt on Kashyyyk spells doom for outposts along the Kathol Rift, and why General Veers can't afford another thorilide shortage along the Rimma."
- ―Everi Chalis, to Micha Evon
The Kathol Rift was a region of space where multiple outposts were located. According to Everi Chalis, the Imperial governor of Haidoral Prime, a slave revolt on Kashyyyk would cause serious problems for the outposts. After defecting to the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry in 3 ABY, she shared her theory involving the Kathol Rift with Captain Micha Evon and some of his colleagues aboard the company's CR90 corvette, the Thunderstrike.
