Chinshassa was the capital city of the planet, Shalyvane. Former Rogue Squadron pilot, Shira Brie, once claimed that Chinshassa was her hometown. She told Luke Skywalker that when she was a little girl, a group of savage warriors known as the Em'liy raided Chinshassa and wiped out her people. This was later revealed to be a lie however, as it was proven that the Em'liy were actually the native denizens of Chinshassa, not Brie's people.

In 3 ABY, Luke Skywalker, Shira Brie, Captain Hanc Thorben, and Wald arrived in Chinshassa to assist Brie in a personal, private mission. They encountered a group of Em'liy warriors at a sacred site known as the Circle of Kavaan. Believing the Em'liy to be raiders, Skywalker and the others aided Brie in driving them away from Chinshassa.
