Bio: A man born to a low ranks Imperial Officer, he was not granted many privileges, however was told to love the Empire. As he grew older, he saw his father get promoted to Colonel, and then to General, due to his knowledge and resourcefulness. This lead him to believe that knowledge and ingenuity was the way to excel.
Sent off to the Imperial Academy at Raithal, he spent four years there learning all he could about ground combat and Military weaponry. He also, signed himself up for the Stormtrooper academy and Commando classes at Carida. During that time, however, his father was slain at the Battle of Hoth. Once his classes were done, he went into active service, and fought against the Rebels.
He spent most of his early carrir as a commando conducting missions against Rebel targets. However, one thing still bothered him throughout it all. The Empire he saw, the one he loved, was not the empire he was working for. Studying History during his spare time, he learned what was the problem. The Jedi and sith were controling everything! The old republic was taken over, due to the Jedi controling all military action, and attempting to take over. Now, a Sith Lord runs the Military, as well as the Empire, and there was corruption and crime everywhere he looked.
It was at this time, during his life, that the Civil War Ended. The Rebels managed to destroy yet another super weapon, and both Lord Vader AND the Emperor in one blow. still a Memeber of the Imperial Remnent, he was promoted to General. The men under his command, both specialist and trooper alike, respected him not for his postion, but due to the fact, he usual fought with his troops during battles, even saving their lives, something that was not taught in the imperial Academys. Many moffs were afraid he would eventually defect to the New Republic, due to his attitude, and take his men with him. However, the Vong War errupted, and he was once again in battle.
The Vong changed him. He fought a few battles with the Jedi, and saw how their powers were almost useless against the Vong. It was this revliation, that made him see that the Jedi and even the Sith, COULD be defeated. There were creatures that were not subject to the force. Likewise, during a major battle, Many of the Moffs were assassinated. General Veers took over the postion of Moff, and soon was leading battles and finances to defeat the Vong. However, he also did something that was not expected of him. He stole lots of credits saying they were for various war expenses, when in truth, it was for his own bases and equipment. A Stygium Cloak was found on a planet's blackmarket on Nul Hutta. He managed to aquire it, and sent it to his new research base of Hoth. He also used his new postion to dig up old research that was long since gone. The two things that fascinated him, were Dark Troopers, and Coirtus, a Force Resistant and Lightsaber resistant material.
After the Vong War, his statististics showed the highest victory at the lowest cost, when it came to equipment and lives. Due to this, and pressure from some segments of the Rank and File that owed Veers their lives, he was granted the Postion of Grand Moff. Using his new influence, he also got himself inducted as the Grand General.
