Description: Bom Vimdin was a widely disliked Advozse male who worked as a mercenary, smuggler, and black marketeer. He earned a reputation for working with corrupt officials, providing illicit goods to Imperial officers, and became wanted by the Galactic Empire. In 7977 C.R.C., he was held prisoner by the Empire on board their Death Star superweapon, but he managed to escape from his cell using an explosive device.
After escaping, he spent time in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina in the spaceport of Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine, sitting at a table with fellow patrons Hem Dazon, Pons Limbic, Braconnor Bakiska, and Arleil Schous. He was later present in the cantina again when the bounty hunter Boba Fett questioned the patrons there for information on local moisture farmer Luke Skywalker. New Republic police commissioner Exantor Divo later wrote about Vimdin in his book, Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy's Most Notorious.
Wanted by the Empire
Born around 28 BBY on the planet Riflor, Bom Vimdin was a mercenary who became one of the most successful smugglers and black marketeers operating in the Outer Rim Territories, selling Imperial officers illicit substances and entertainment that was not in keeping with Imperial codes of conduct. By 7977.44.3 C.R.C., he was wanted for crimes against the Galactic Empire including collusion, bribery, theft, and conspiracy, despite the fact that he indirectly supported the Imperials.
Imperial Security Bureau Agent Andressa Divo included a mention of Vimdin in her notes, describing him as a "disease-carrying parasite" and "amoral magnet" who confused the human moral compass and played an important role in tempting Imperial officials to begin taking bribes. She also noted that the Empire had yet to develop a reliable defense against criminals like Vimdin.
In the same year, he ended up as a prisoner of the Empire and was held in a cell on board the Death Star superweapon. Vimdin managed to get hold of an explosive device and used it to blow a hole in the side of his cell, allowing him to escape into the neighboring corridor and flee from pursuing stormtroopers.
The mercenary ultimately managed to escape from the Death Star and, shortly before the Battle of Yavin, he was present in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina in the Mos Eisley spaceport on the planet Tatooine. While in the cantina, he sat at a booth table in one of the establishment's backrooms with the Arcona Hem Dazon, the Siniteen Pons Limbic, the Stennes Shifter Braconnor Bakiska, and the Defel Arleil Schous. While the group sat together, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and local moisture farmer Luke Skywalker entered the establishment looking for a pilot to take them to the planet Alderaan. The group was still sat together when Kenobi and Skywalker came into conflict with the thugs Doctor Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba at the cantina's bar.
Following the Battle of Yavin, in 0 ABY, Vimdin and Limbic were both again present in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina when the bounty hunter Boba Fett entered seeking the identity of Skywalker. The pair stood silently as part of a crowd while Fett questioned them until one of the other patrons challenged him. Fett defeated the patron and eventually got the information he was looking for by interrogating a human who tried to flee from the bar.
During the New Republic Era, New Republic police commissioner Exantor Divo, son of Andressa Divo, wrote about Vimdin in his book, Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy's Most Notorious, which detailed the experiences of three generations of law enforcement officials in his family. Divo included his mother's notes and the criminal's Imperial wanted poster in the book, writing about Vimdin as an example of the opportunists who tempted Imperial officers who had been given difficult postings.
