Culroon III,[1] also known as Culroon,[2] was a location in the galaxy, inhabited by Culroonians.[1] Shortly before the Battle of Hoth[3] in 3 ABY,[4] the Culroonians fought the Empire[1] in a campaign[2] on Culroon III[1] after a revolt there.[5] The human male Maximilian Veers fought on Culroon III as an Imperial combatant,[1] winning the campaign for the Empire.[5] The courage, cunning,[1] and leadership[3] Veers demonstrated on Culroon III led to his promotion to the rank of general in the Imperial Army,[1] and assignment to the Sith Lord Darth Vader's Death Squadron.[5] Culroon III was mentioned in a profile on Veers in the Galactic Explorer's Guide published by Hondo Ohnaka after the Battle of Starkiller Base[2] in 34 BBY[4]
