Vah'nya was a Force-sensitive Chiss female who served as an ozyly-esehembo in the Chiss Expansionary Defense Fleet aboard the Steadfast. She was unique among Chiss Force-sensitives in that her powers of Third Sight lasted beyond childhood and remained strong at the age of twenty-two. Furthermore, Vah'nya was one of the few Chiss navigators that possessed the power of Second Sight as well as Third Sight.

Notes and references
- Thrawn: Treason states that Vah'nya is twenty-two years old. The events of Thrawn: Treason take place shortly after "Rebel Assault" and before "Family Reunion – and Farewell." The epilogue of "Family Reunion – and Farewell" occurs after the end of the Galactic Civil War, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 5 ABY, meaning the epilogue must take place during or after that year. "A World Between Worlds" occurs prior to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY, so it must take place during or prior to that year. Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy establishes there is a five years pass between when Ahsoka Tano is saved by Ezra Bridger in "A World Between Worlds" and when she returns to Lothal in the epilogue of "Family Reunion – and Farewell." Therefore, "A World Between Worlds" must be set in 0 BBY. Because "Rebel Assault" is set in the days directly preceding "Family Reunion – and Farewell," Thrawn: Treason also must take place in 0 BBY. It can then be calculated that Vah'nya was born in 22 BBY.
