Wyron Serper was a male human who served with the Alliance to Restore the Republic as the senior controller of the command center in the Alliance's Echo Base on the planet Hoth. In 3 ABY, he and the base's commander, General Carlist Rieekan discussed an unidentified blip that had been detected near the base with Princess Leia Organa and her companions Han Solo and Chewbacca.

After Serper played a weak signal coming from the blip, Solo and Chewbacca left to investigate it and discovered it to be the Imperial Viper probe droid XJ9-CS14. The droid alerted the Empire to the Alliance's presence on Hoth, forcing the Alliance to evacuate as the Imperials attacked.

Biography[edit | edit source]

The human male[1] Wyron Serper served in the Alliance to Restore the Republic as part of its fight against the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. In 3 ABY, Serper was serving as the senior controller in the command center of Echo Base, the Alliance's secret headquarters on the planet Hoth. When the Alliance picked up an unidentified blip moving east past the base of Zone Twelve, the base's commander, General Carlist Rieekan, called fellow rebel Princess Leia Organa over to Serper's console in the command center, where the general and the controller were viewing the blip's movements near the base on a map.[2]

Rieekan explained the situation to Organa and her companions Han Solo and Chewbacca, with Serper adding that it was made of metal. Organa used this information to rule out the possibility of it being one of the predatory wampa they were dealing with, while Solo suggested it might be one of their own speeders. Serper denied this, then adjusted the controls on his headset and reported that they were getting a weak signal from the unidentified object, turning on an audio speaker so the others could hear it. The protocol droid C-3PO then informed the group that the signal was not one used by the Alliance, suggesting it might be Imperial. Solo then left with Chewbacca to head out and locate the source of the signal, while Rieekan ordered Serper to have Rogue Ten and Rogue Eleven of Rogue Squadron move to Station 3-8.[2]

Solo and Chewbacca discovered the blip to be the Imperial Viper probe droid XJ9-CS14, which alerted the Empire to the presence of the rebels before self-destructing. The Alliance then began to evacuate Echo Base, but were soon attacked by the Empire, who claimed victory on Hoth but failed to stop many rebels from escaping.[2]
