Pieter was a male Ming Po who served as Chieftain of Ming Po Town on the planet Carlac. During the Clone Wars he tried to remain neutral, but the Mandalorian Death Watch group made a base on Carlac and began bullying and kidnapping villagers from Pieter's town, greatly angering him. In an attempt to save his people, Pieter confronted Pre Vizsla, the leader of the Death Watch. Vizsla attempted to kill Pieter for his insolence, but the Chieftain's granddaughter Tryla sacrificed herself to save her grandfather. The Mandalorians then set the Ming Po town ablaze, but the Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and her friend Lux Bonteri saved Pieter and his people.
