Trey Callum was a human male who served in the Imperial Officer Corps of the Galactic Empire as an Imperial officer before choosing to join the Alliance to Restore the Republic in opposing them. By 3 ABY, Callum was an officer in the Alliance Military and was stationed at Echo Base on the planet Hoth. There, he commanded the soldiers of Outpost Beta, a series of artillery trenches dug between Hoth's Nev Ice Flow and South Ridge.
When the Empire discovered and attacked Echo Base, they were forced to deploy ground forces due to the base's shield. This deployment included Blizzard Force, a group of All Terrain Armored Transports directed to destroy the deflector shield generator at Echo Base. As his men prepared their defences, Callum spotted the walkers with a pair of macrobinoculars from Echo Station 3-T-8 and reported the vehicles' approach back to Echo Base. During the ensuing battle, Callum's troopers at Outpost Beta were able to decimate the snowtroopers of Blizzard Force using anti-personnel batteries, but could not penetrate the armor of the walkers. Ultimately, the Empire successfully destroyed the shield generator and claimed victory on Hoth, but not before the Alliance managed to evacuate large amounts of its personnel.
Personality and traitsEdit
Callum had fair skin.
While on Hoth, Callum wore rebel snow gear including a white thermal flak jacket, white command gauntlets and a white insulated watch cap with a com set, a white face wrap, white cap warmers and anti-glare goggles.
