"I've been watching you ever since you joined us on Veron."
―Micha Evon, to Brand[3]

Veron was a terrestrial astronomical object where the species known as Gwerax-hai were captured, typically using net-throwers.[2] The Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry held an open recruiting drive on Veron[1] sometime by the year 0 BBY.[4] At the recruiting drive, the bounty hunter Brand joined the infantry company in an attempt to get close enough to Captain Micha Evon to assassinate him for his bounty. Lying about her identity, the bounty hunter smuggled her kit onto the 61st's CR90 corvette, the Thunderstrike.[1]

Evon cited Brand's arrival in the company on Veron when she eventually attempted to kill him on the planet Allst Prime. The captain subsequently convinced her to stay in the 61st and give up the bounty on him.[3] Brand also recounted joining the company on Veron when telling her backstory to the 61st recruit Roach on the planet Coyerti[1] in 3 ABY.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

Veron was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, written by Alexander Freed.[1]

A planet named "Veron" was first introduced in the 1991 Star Wars Legends sourcebook Planets of the Galaxy, Volume One. The sourcebook, written for West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, placed "Veron" in the Mektrun Cluster.[6] In the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, a "Veron Minor system" was introduced, along with mentions of the Senex sector world Veron and the "Veron system."[7] The StarWars.com Online Companion to that book placed both the Mektrun Cluster and the Veron Minor system in the Mektrun sector, thus confirming that the original planet Veron had been renamed Veron Minor retroactively.[8]

  4. Battlefront: Twilight Company establishes that Brand was part of the 61st Mobile Infantry by the time of the battle on Vir Aphshire, which occurred concurrent to the Battle of Yavin. Brand must have therefore joined the company prior to the Battle of Yavin, the beginning of which is dated to 0 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas.
  5. The main events of Battlefront: Twilight Company are set twenty-two years after the Clone Wars, which ended in 19 BBY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Those events must have therefore occurred in 3 ABY.
