- "When I adopted Ghes, we had a hard time accepting each other at first, too. And I'd known him all my life. His parents were my neighbors."
- ―Novoc Vevut
Clan Vevut was a Mandalorian clan in existence on the planet Mandalore around the time of the Second Galactic Civil War. After the death of his neighbors, Mandalorian soldier Novoc Vevut adopted their young orphaned son, Ghes Orade, in Mandalorian tradition. Vevut raised Orade, and the two lived together at Vevut's home and workshop in Keldabe, Mandalore's capital city. In 40 ABY, Orade met Mirta Gev—granddaughter of Mand'alor Boba Fett—and the two began a relationship that led to their getting married. The wedding marked the initiation of Gev into the Vevut clan, and the celebration following their private ceremony was held at the clan's Keldabe home.

- ―Mirta Gev
Living in Keldabe, the capital city of the planet Mandalore, the Mandalorian soldier Novoc Vevut owned a home that doubled as a workshop where he crafted and repaired weapons. At some point in time, Vevut's neighbors died, leaving their young son Ghes Orade orphaned. Vevut had known the boy his whole life, and with his parents dead, decided to adopt Orade in the Mandalorian tradition. The two did not get off to a pleasant start to their relationship, finding it difficult to accept each other in their new roles, though in time they grew closer. Vevut taught and trained Orade, and guided him through his verd'goten, the traditional right of passage in Mandalorian culture that marked a coming of legal age.
In 40 ABY, both Novoc Vevut and his son, Ghes Orade, were called to Zerria's Bar on Drall, located in the Core's Corellian system. There, they met with Mand'alor Boba Fett, leader of the Mandalorian clans, to discuss an offer from Corellia's President, Thrackan Sal-Solo, to defend Centerpoint Station. Neither Vevut or Orade was enthusiastic about the idea, and they soon departed the Mandalorians' table to engage in a game of cheg with a female bounty hunter that was later revealed to be Fett's granddaughter, Mirta Gev.
Their meeting at the Drall cantina led to Orade and Gev developing a romantic relationship, and in need of a place to stay following the death of her mother, Ailyn Vel, Gev came to live with the Vevut clan at their Keldabe home. As time went on, Orade and Gev's relationship grew more serious, and Gev took to wearing the golden sigils of Clan Vevut on her Mandalorian armor. When the Mandalorians were contracted by Imperial Admiral Natasi Daala, Vevut, Orade, and Gev all took part in the Second Battle of Fondor against the forces of the Sith Lord Darth Caedus. During the engagement, Orade piloted one of Mandalore's new Tra'kad starships, while Gev and Vevut boarded the Turbulent-class Star Destroyer Bloodfin. Gev gravely wounded Sith apprentice Tahiri Veila with a stab to the leg, impressing Vevut with her combat ferocity. In the aftermath of the battle and the victory against Darth Caedus, the Mandalorian commandos returned to Mandalore, where Gev and Orade were wed in a private marriage ceremony. Vevut subsequently threw a celebratory feast at their Keldabe home, happy to have Gev as a part of Clan Vevut.
Behind the scenesEdit
Clan members Novoc Vevut and Ghes Orade were first pictured in the Star Wars Insider article, The Mandalorians: People and Culture, written by Karen Traviss and illustrated by Thomas Hodges. Initially identified only as a nameless Mandalorian father and son in the article, the two were later featured in the novel Legacy of the Force: Bloodlines, the second entry of the multi-author series, Legacy of the Force, and also written by Traviss. Traviss continued to feature the characters in her subsequent Star Wars novels Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice and Legacy of the Force: Revelation, introducing Boba Fett's granddaughter Mirta Gev into the clan via a marriage to Ghes Orade.
