Biography[edit | edit source]
A male of the militaristic Iotran species, Vigrat Pomoner hailed from the Outer Rim planet Iotra, and was part of the Iotran Police Force. After a unit of the Galactic Empire's military sent him and other members of the police force into an ambush because Non-huMan lives were considered expendable to them, Pomoner joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic as the Rebels tried to overthrow the Empire. He was part of the Rebel-controlled Echo Base's starfighter pilot complement that composed Rogue Flight, Blue Squadron, and Green Squadron on the barren ice planet Hoth. When Echo Base was discovered by an Imperial Viper probe droid in 3 ABY, the Imperial unit Death Squadron, led by the Sith Lord Darth Vader, attacked the Rebels there.
Pomoner was one of the many Rebel pilots from the starfighter complement who were scrambled together to create Rogue Group. The only non-Human in Rogue Group, Pomoner was assigned to a T-47 airspeeder designated as Rogue Six to be its gunner, and flew with pilot Samoc Farr as Rogue Group attempted to buy time for the Rebel personnel to evacuate Echo Base aboard GR-75 medium transports. In the battle, an Imperial All Terrain Armored Transport walker shot down Pomoner's T-47, killing him, though Farr survived.
