Voss is a planet located in the Outer Rim, and is the third planet of the Voss system. It is home to two indigenous species, the warlike Gormak and the less populous Voss. These two peoples have long fought one another, the Voss only surviving against their enemy's greater numbers by following the guidance of their Mystics.
When discovered following the Treaty of Coruscant, the planet Voss was thought to be home to only one intelligent species. The native Gormak were primitive by galactic standards; though possessing great aptitude with technology, they had yet to discover space travel. However, a second native species, the Voss, were encountered shortly thereafter.
The native Voss were led by Force-users known as Mystics, individuals capable of fortelling the future. The Mystic's visions had allowed the Voss to survive overwhelming attacks by the Gormak, and the accuracy of these visions quickly caught the interest of both the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire.
The Empire, intent on claiming Voss, launched an invasion force that was met by Republic soldiers, sent to protect the planet. Unknown to both forces, however, the Voss Mystics had foreseen their arrival; the Voss intervened in the conflict, ultimately causing both sides to stand down and compete peacefully for the favor of the native force-users.
