"Yin Vocta. Let's see…How could I possibly describe him? The only word that immediately springs to mind is 'unique.'"
―Chden K'Reye[src]

Yin Vocta was a male Anomid businessman on the planet Lianna. He was the enigmatic owner of Bantha Traxx and the long-term friend of Kaylo NaKuda. He was also a crime lord.


Yin Vocta graduated top of his class at the prestigious Lunis-Medix Medical Academy. He was a skilled surgeon who performed countless cybernetic enhancements on the assassin Haelon Tice. He spent many years on Tatooine but was never associated to Jabba the Hutt's criminal organization. He eventually made his way to Lianna where his company, Vector Technologies, sometimes called VecTech purchased the abandoned nightclub Club Vortex and completely refurbished it as Bantha Traxx. It was rumored that Yin had set up a secret deal with Lady Valles Santhe in order to acquire the property. Both VecTech and Bantha Traxx became very profitable. Yin actively sought out the best and brightest bands to play at his club, including BoSS Code, Proton Overload and Dengar and the Destroyers. Up-and-coming bands would play at his annual 'Gathering of the Herd' event and was considered to be an opportunity for a band to get a big break.
