The Battle of the Tower was fought on the Outer Rim world Crucival between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry nineteen years after the Clone Wars. The Empire armed the civilians to help them defend the Crucival transmitter tower. However, soon after the battle began, they abandoned the armed civilians and hid under their shield, using the civilians as fodder for the rebels.
After decimating the civilian mercenary force, the 61st Company shredded through the tower’s defense. After the battle and the death of his friend Pira, one of the civilian mercenaries named Hazram Namir joined Twilight Company. He was recruited by the Besalisk Gadren.
