Zevaas Tellaan was a Chagrian male who served as a foreman in the Balmorran Arms Factory on the planet Balmorra while the planet was occupied by the reconstituted Sith Empire during the Cold War between the Empire and the Galactic Republic. Sometime between 3653 BBY and 3642 BBY, Tellaan, who was known as a hard-nosed supervisor, convinced the Imperial occupiers that he could lead them to refugees in a nearby cave, but what they found instead was a stockpile of munitions. Tellaan promptly detonated the weapons, killing himself and the Imperials he had tricked; his sacrifice served as a distraction, allowing his former employees and their families to escape off-world.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia states that Tellaan died during the Imperial occupation of Balmorra, which began in 3653 BBY after the Galactic Republic withdrew per the Treaty of Coruscant. The Imperial occupation ends in the Republic storylines on Balmorra in Act II of Star Wars: The Old Republic, which occurs before the collapse of the Treaty that The Old Republic: Annihilation, which The Essential Reader's Companion dates to 3640 BBY, places eighteen months prior, in the middle of 3641 BBY. Act II can be placed in approximately 3642 BBY per the reasoning here; thus, Tellaan's death must occur between 3653 BBY and 3642 BBY.
