|Chronological and Political Information|
Vigrat Pomoner was a male Iotran from the Outer Rim planet of Iotra, where he served as a member of the Iotran Police Force. Joining the Rebel Alliance after the Imperial Military sent him and other members of Iotra's police force into an ambush, Pomoner was the gunner for the T-47 Airspeeder designated Rogue Six during the Third Battle of Hoth in 3 ABY, when Imperial forces attacked the Rebels there. He was killed when an Imperial All Terrain Armored Transport shot down his airspeeder.
A male of the militaristic Iotran species, Vigrat Pomoner hailed from the Outer Rim planet Iotra. While growing up, Vigrat joined the Iotran Police Force, but that was when things began to change. After the Galactic Empire's military sent him and other members of the police force into an ambush because Non-Human lives were considered expendable to them, Pomoner joined the Rebel Alliance and would do anything to overthrow the Empire during the early years of the First Galactic Civil War. He was part of the Rebel-controlled Echo Base's starfighter pilot complement that composed Rogue Flight, Blue Squadron, and Green Squadron on the barren ice planet of Hoth.
When Echo Base was discovered by an Imperial Viper Probe Droid in 3 ABY, the Imperial unit Death Squadron, led by the Sith Lord Darth Vader, attacked the Rebels there. Pomoner was one of the many Rebel pilots from the starfighter complement who were scrambled together to create Rogue Group. The only non-Human in Rogue Group, Pomoner was assigned to a T-47 Airspeeder designated as Rogue Six to be its gunner, and flew with pilot Samoc Farr as Rogue Group attempted to buy time for the Rebel personnel to evacuate Echo Base aboard GR-75 Medium Transports. In the battle, an Imperial All Terrain Armored Transport walker shot down Pomoner's T-47, killing him, though Farr survived.
Personality and TraitsEdit
A hulking Iotran, Pomoner joined the Rebel Alliance because he was opposed to the way Imperial forces sent his police force into an ambush, as the Imperials considered non-Human lives expendable.
