Rook was born and raised on Cathar. He was 16 when the Manalorian Fleet attacked his home world (3,973 BBY). They attacked without warning, bombarding the planet from orbit. Within the first 24 hours half the planet’s population had been slaughtered. Most of the rest of the population was killed over then next few months. Rook was luck, he and a small group of other young adults were out in the wild for The Hunt, when the cities were bombarded.
After the initial bombardment, the group sneaked back into the city. The Mandalorian soldiers had occupied what was left of the cities, but the Cathars, even severly outnumbers and outgunned resisted. For 6 months, Rook fought with the resistance, battling the Mandos when ever the opportunity provided. They fought up until they learned that the Mandos were through with the ground war and that they were going to cut their losses and bombard the entire surface of the planet.
Rook and his team struck a Mando outpost and secured a transport off the planet. Once off Cathar, Rook separated from the rest of the group and eventually joined the Rebublic Military. When the Mandalorian Armies eventually struck the Republic, Rook was on the front lines of the war, seeking revenge for the massacre of his planet and his people.
Rook’s need for revenge was his downfall as a soldier in the Republic Army. In 3,965 BBY Rook was discharged from service, his commanding officers thought he showed unnecessary brutality in combat when in close combat with the Mandalorians. Rook would sometimes loose himself in the battle and brutally savage enemy soldiers with his claws. Something the primarily human members of the Republic Army viewed as little more than a barely controlled savage beast.
He found himself on Tattooine in the need of work, he took odd jobs on various ships, but always seemed to end up back on Tattooine. Eventually he found himself working with an Arkanian named Karael.
