Virevols were a non-sentient species of saber-toothed rat found only on Despayre,[1] a prison world in the Atrivis sector of the Outer Rim Territories.[2] The virevol could grow to the size of wolves, and were considered formidable creatures by the prisoners on Despayre. A Brigian prisoner—known to be a former assassin—was rumored to have killed a virevol with only a stick, after which he was supposed to have cooked and eaten it. All the virevol on Despayre perished with the destruction of the planet by the first Death Star[1] in 0 BBY.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

The virevols were created by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry in their 2007 novel Death Star.[1]
