Vhiin Thorla was a compassionate Twi'lek male who served as a Jedi Master of the Old Jedi Order and served as a general instructor at the Almas Academy during the final period of the Galactic Republic.
A year before the Clone Wars erupted, Vhiin and his apprentice Kritz Drassarb were dispatched by the Almas Council to investigate a pirate incursion into the Mid Rim. While the mission was successful, Vhiin's padawan was killed in the crossfire. Feeling severe grief and guilt over this incident, he went into a self-imposed exile on his homeworld of Ryloth. During his exile, Vhiin began experiencing a series of profound Force Visions revolving around the enslavement and exploitation of his fellow Twi'leks. Following these visions, he traveled to the Bright Lands and proceeded to construct The Enclave as a refuge to help former Twi'lek slaves. During his administration of The Enclave, Vhiin decided to take on another Padawan when he discovered Dorv'Tilsta, a Force-sensitive Twi'lek boy.
During Vhiin's absence, trouble had come to the Almas Academy and the Council decided to recall him. To accomplish this, they sent the Heroes of Cularin to Ryloth, who eventually managed to locate the exiled master. Following the heroes arrival at The Enclave, a Slaver gang attacked in an attempt to capture several former slaves that were "liberated" from them. With the help of the Almas Jedi, Vhiin repelled the slavers attack which only managed to further his resolve in attending to The Enclave.
