Infamous Chevin slaver Phylus Mon frequently selected Force-sensitive slaves among the files of the Chevs and "freed" them to his service: He paid them a salary and said they were free - but if they tried to leave Phylus Mon's employment, they would die. Niv was one of those Chev slaves, used in Phylus Mon's security guard: The Chev was to use his Force powers to increase the battle prowess of the other guards, or to create illusions of huge predators to scare Phylus Mon's enemies, although Niv himself would not involve in any physical combat.
In around 20 BBY, Niv was one of the three Chevs in Phylus Mon's throne guard, along with Tosh and Drik - all of whom hated Phylus Mon. But, like all of Phylus Mon's slaves, they had an inbuilt explosive that would kill them instantly should Phylus Mon die. The Chevs were sitting at their master's feet, where they could Force-affect all of the bodyguards (including a group of Coruscani ogres, and a hidden Wampa), and in a room big enough for an illusory rancor to attack.
With Phylus Mon's mobile headquarters was in the Cularin system, the throne room was attacked by a local group who opposed to Phylus Mon's plans. Phylus Mon made a threat to the group, but the sentence was really a code for the Chevs to know they should begin to Force-boost the guards.
Niv's final destiny after this encounter is unknown.
- A Mon Alone (First appearance)
Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ The Living Force Campaign Guide states that the Living Force campaign is set one year after the Invasion of Naboo, an event that is dated to 32 BBY by The New Essential Chronology. As the Living Force adventure Philology moved the campaign forward ten years to the time of the Clone Wars, and the adventure Night's Homecoming established that by Year 4 of the campaign over a year had elapsed since the events of Philology, A Mon Alone can therefore be dated to circa 20 BBY.
