Vee attended the Imperial Academy where he befriended a fellow cadet named Bens Figg. Tabbins followed in the shadow of Figg's accomplishments, coming in as second best in every academic achievement. The two cadets graduated together, and were both stationed as guards at the Golrath smelting plant.
In 3 ABY, the Rebel Alliance attacked Golrath Station, and Princess Leia Organa incapacitated trooper Vee. He perished inside the facility when the entire plant exploded as the result of a power core breach.
