Valent grew up around a spaceport on his homeworld of Huulia. There, he hired on to various freighters and transports as a teenager to see the galaxy. This convinced him that the Empire needed to be overthrown.
After joining the Rebel Alliance, Valent was assigned to Echo Base on Hoth. As gunner on Zev Senesca's snowspeeder, designated Rogue Two, he took part in the Battle of Hoth. Both Senesca and Valent were killed when their speeder was destroyed by an All Terrain Armored Transport.
