this was the Basic translation of the Nelvaanese word used to describe the planet Nelvaan and its environment. The planet itself was known as Mother, and the Nelvaanians worshipped the Great Mother and all the bounty she had provided them. When the Separatists established a facility near the Rokrul area of Nelvaan and began drawing on the planet's geothermal energy, the Nelvaanians saw this as a kind of illness being suffered by the Great Mother. With the planetary energy being used for devious purposes, Nelvaan was plunged into a preternatural winter, and the Great Mother was unable to provide sustenance for the Nelvaanians. It was Orvos who foresaw that Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi would arrive on Nelvaan and uncover the truth behind the Great Mother's illness.
