Phootla Veer, along with Lima Starcourt and Reebo Keen, was one of three leaders of a separatist cell that operated on the planet Ostor and remained loyal to the Separatist holdouts long after the Clone Wars ended. Two years after the war, the Galactic Empire launched a military offensive to suppress the influence of the separatists on Ostor. Veer and the other separatist leaders helped establish a defense strategy. This allowed the separatist general Atticus Farstar to almost completely wipe out a first wave of the Empire. However, the defense did not stand up to a second wave of attacks. Veer and the other leaders were killed in the course of the battle.
