|Chronological and Political Information|
M'Kae was a Human male who worked as a Warrant Officer of the Galactic Empire during the time of the First Galactic Civil War, a major galactic conflict fought between them and the Rebel Alliance. After the battle of Yavin IV, M'Kae traveled to the city of Restuss on the planet Naboo's moon of Rori. While stationed on the moon, he led a group of Imperials to rescue a pilot Cal Handro from Alliance operatives. However, he was persuaded to give away Handro's whereabouts by a spacer working for the Alliance, and the spacer pursued and killed Handro. In 3 ABY, after overseeing various dangerous missions, M'Kae served as the communications officer, as well as the hard-working signal officer, of the Imperial II-Class Star Destroyer Avenger, attached to Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader's personal Star Destroyer fleet, Death Squadron. He apprised Darth Vader's flagship, the Super Star Destroyer Executor, of the Avenger's activities, and relayed orders from the Executor to the Avenger's captain, Lorth Needa. He also coordinated and tested tractor beam equipment.
Following the Third Battle of Hoth that year, M'Kae was aboard the Avenger's command bridge when the Star Destroyer pursued the fugitive YT-1300 Light Freighter Millennium Falcon from the Hoth System. When the Avenger lost the Falcon in the Anoat system, M'Kae relayed Lord Vader's order for an update on the pursuit to Needa. The captain decided to go to the Executor and apologize to Vader for the failure, while ordering his crew to continue searching for the Falcon. The rest of Death Squadron would ultimately disperse into hyperspace in search of the Falcon, along with the Avenger. Before the Avenger went to hyperspace—not knowing of the Falcon still being on its conning tower—it disposed of its garbage, and the Falcon took the opportunity to float away with the garbage, effectively avoiding detection.
