Maer was a humanoid male[1] who served as a corporal in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. He was stationed at[2] the Alliance High Command headquarters[3] of Echo Base on the ice planet Hoth shortly before the Battle of Hoth[2] in 3 ABY.[4] Maer was a tauntaun handler who developed a unique sign language to communicate with the creatures.[2] He received training in the use of many of Echo Base's heavy weapons, including the Atgar 1.4 FD P-Tower.[5] Following the Rebel Alliance's defeat at Hoth, Maer became well-known as one of Echo Base's tauntaun handlers.[6]

Maer was an expert on animals[2] as well as Hoth's frozen terrain. During his tenure on Hoth, Maer wore the Rebellion's standard Echo Base cold-weather armor. His suit included headgear, anti-glare goggles, a scarf, padded vest, padded tunic, gloves, and leggings.[1]
