- "Still at one hundred percent, sir."
"Good. Begin a step-back in random percentages of power—randomize from seven. When you hit seventy-five percent, cut to fifty. When their salvos slacken, go down to twenty, then five, then zero."
- ―Harm, reporting shield levels to Evir Derricote
Harm was an male Imperial technician who monitored shielding on the planet Borleias during the First Battle of Borleias in 6 ABY, in which the New Republic sought to capture Borleias as a base for an eventual assault on the planet Coruscant. During the course of the battle, Harm reported that the bases shields were still at one hundred percent, despite being bombarded by the New Republic Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Emancipator. At this point, General Evir Derricote, commander of the Imperial base on Borleias, ordered him to begin stepping the power back in random amounts. As Derricote had anticipated, the Emancipator scaled back the bombardment of the base as soon as the shields dropped, allowing Derricote's forces to launch a successful counterattack.
Behind the scenes
Harm first appeared in the 1996 novel X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, written by Michael A. Stackpole. He would later receive an entry in the The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, written by Stephen J. Sansweet and Pablo Hidalgo and published in December 2008.
