Vic Fuckler came from the planet Corellia, and lost his family during the Clone Wars. He served in the Republic navy towards the end of the conflict, and was honorably discharged a few years after the end. Fuckler was completely disenfranchised with the military after the annihilation of the Jedi and the shift towards the Galactic Empire, and was happy to retire to a quiet beach community in the Santa Monica system. When General McQuarrie visited Fuckler himself to request Vic's service in the Alliance to Restore the Republic, Vic thought on it only as long as it took to take his last sip of coffee. He was instated as a Major. "Major Fuckler" certainly had a nice ring to it.
