21 BBY, Qiilura
|Chronological and political information|
In 22 BBY, he granted Etain Tur-Mukan and Jinart shelter after the abduction of Jedi Master Kast Fulier. However, he was highly suspicious and became angry at Etain when a Republic transport crashed landed on his field. Believing that the Jedi would bring him trouble, he was persuaded by the Gurlanin Jinart not to turn her over to the local militia led by Ghez Hokan.
One year later, Birhan was present when the Republic attempted to remove the colonists from Qilura in order to keep the Gurlanins on their side. He was upset about Etain's behavior and was among the colonists that refused to leave without a fight and eventually resettled with the clone troopers to battle the Separatists. He was killed during the firefight.
