Description: Bombardier was a human male who served the Galactic Empire as a facilities planning officer prior to its fall. Becoming part of the New Republic Amnesty Program, he helped to rebuild the Outer Rim planet Plazir-15 as part of his rehabilitation, falling in love with a member of the world's royal family and marrying her. The pair then were elected to rule an absolute democracy in Plazir-15's first election.
Around 9 ABY, reprogrammed Imperial droids used for civic service on Plazir-15 began malfunctioning and posing a threat to its citizens. As the world had no military or armed constabulary, Bombardier and his wife, now a captain and a Duchess respectively, recruited the aid of the visiting Mandalorians Bo-Katan Kryze and Din Djarin to deal with the droids. The pair successfully uncovered Plazir-15's Commissioner Helgait as the source of the malfunctions and brought him before the Duchess and Bombardier in cuffs.
Bombardier was a human male who served the Galactic Empire as a facilities planning officer during the Galactic Civil War against the Alliance to Restore the Republic. The Alliance eventually reorganized into the New Republic and defeated the Empire, after which Bombardier joined the New Republic Amnesty Program. As part of rehabilitation through the program, he was able to oversee rebuilding efforts on Plazir-15, an Outer Rim world that had suffered greatly under Imperial rule. As part of this effort, Bombardier personally oversaw the program that re-programmed Imperial droids on the world for exclusively peaceful civic duty.
While helping to rebuild, Bombardier and a member of the planet's royal family fell in love and were married. Believing it was time for Plazir-15 to move into a new age, the pair were elected to rule over an independent pluralistic society in Plazir-15's first set of democratic elections. Ruling the absolute democracy as both royals and elected officials, Bombardier and his wife hired a group of Mandalorian privateers led by the mercenary Axe Woves for protection, as their charter forbid Plazir-15 from having a military due to Bombardier's Imperial past.
Arrival of the tenacious three
By around 9 ABY, Bombardier held the rank of captain while his wife held the title of duchess. The reprogram droids that now served on Plazir-15 meant that the residents no longer needed to work and so could focus on recreation; however, the pair became aware of malfunctions occurring among the droids. These started as just unexpected power cycles or task stacks being deleted, but got worse as traffic accidents, assaults, and heavy equipment failures began to put the citizens at risk.
As the citizens had become so dependant on the droids, they voted against shutting all of them down, but as the world's constabulary were not allowed to carry weapons, they were unable to deal with the individual droids causing the problems. The privateers were also unable to intervene as Plazir-15's charter disallowed any standing army from entering the domed city where Bombardier and the Duchess lived.
When the Mandalorian Princess Bo-Katan Kryze and her allies Din Djarin and Grogu arrived on Plazir-15 seeking Woves and his forces, the royals saw an opportunity to resolve their problem. After automated guidance brought Kryze's vessel to the domed city, the two visitors were informed that the world's leadership had requested a mandatory audience and were transported to a rotunda-like structure in the city where Bombardier and the Duchess were hosting a party. Upon the arrivals' entry, the captain rose from his seat and invited Kryze and Djarin to join him and his wife as special guests at the head of the table.
A high fidelity couple
Once the pair were seated, Bombardier and the Duchess introduced themselves and explained their backgrounds, with the baby Grogu leaping into the Duchess's lap at her request part way through. When Kryze asked to speak to the privateers, who were camped in the fields outside the city, Bombardier informed her that there was a condition to a meeting being arranged. Inviting the trio of newcomers away from the other party guests out onto a balcony, the captain and the Duchess then explained their droid problems.
As weapons were intrinsic to Mandalorian culture, Kryze and Djarin had been allowed to keep their weapons inside the city despite its usual restrictions, and so the couple hoped that the pair might deal with the remaining malfunctioning droids for them. Having heard from Woves that Kryze aimed to reclaim the Mandalorian homeworld of Mandalore, Bombardier explained that if the Mandalorians were to help them, it would be viewed as an act of cooperation between the two worlds, with Plazir-15 recognizing Mandalore as a sovereign system and even petitioning the New Republic to also recognize it as such. Although Kryze claimed she had abandoned her goal of ruling Mandalore, Kryze and Djarin agreed to help, leaving Grogu with the Duchess and Bombardier as they set off to investigate.
This is not actually the key to our world, this is just a tribute
While waiting for the return of their new allies, the Duchess and Bombardier played a game involving bouncing pill bugs through various scoring hoops. Using the Force, Grogu assisted the Duchess in scoring a quadro-blast, causing a watching crowd to cheer and the captain to announce that he had never seen such a streak. As the celebrating died down, Kryze and Djarin entered with Plazir-15's Commissioner Helgait in cuffs.
They revealed that Helgait had been behind the malfunctions, with the prisoner admitting his crimes. Bombardier denounced Helgait as despicable, but the commissioner threw the insult back in his face and complained that Plazir-15 had become unrecognizable since the captain's arrival. The Duchess admitted her disappointment in Helgait and defended Bombardier as her true love despite the mistakes of his past. Hoping that the commissioner might one day earn forgiveness as the captain had, she exiled him to the moon of Paraqaat.
After Helgait was escorted away, the Duchess granted Kryze and Djarin an audience with the privateers and also bestowed the planet's highest honor, the Key to Plazir, upon them both. The duchess then smiled at Bombardier, who responded with an enthusiastic nod as the Duchess then knighted Grogu as a member of the Ancient Order of Independent Regencies. Wishing the royal couple farewell, the trio of visitors left to visit the privateers, where Kryze defeated Woves to claim leadership over the Mandalorians as part of her efforts to reunite the Mandalorian people.
Bombardier wore military-style finery including a blue tunic and matching pants with a yellow stripe. His outfit also included a yellow cape, a black bandolier, his red Amnesty Program badge, and black shoes.
