Qina was a periwinkle moon of the gas giant of Hanchin, in the Moddell sector. It was wild and very beautiful, with very short nights and a constant green glow from Hanchin. Periodically, however, a Hanchin-set would occur, where the gas giant would fall below the horizon, causing a much darker nighttime.
It was the location of Inicus Mont, a Vashan religious retreat. Each year, around mid-winter, millions of Vashan pilgrims would make their way to the moon to repent. The ceremony was led by Vashan priests known as bohdis.
Behind the scenesEdit
As Jason Fry confirmed in the endnotes to The Essential Atlas, Qina was initially misidentified as Mina in the Star Wars Gamer 9 article. The moon is also labeled "Mina" in entries related to Hanchin in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia.
