Asset R-27 was a member of the intelligence network that served the independent operative known as the Shroud during the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. R-27 served in the Republic Army on the planet Makeb  in 3638 BBY, and erroneously reported to the Shroud that the planet's tectonic instability would lead to its destruction. Not long afterwards, R-27 was unexpectedly reassigned to a frontline posting, and while pursuing a Mantellian ambassador en route to Dorin, R-27's starship was destroyed by what evidence later determined was an Imperial stealth fighter, which piqued the Shroud's curiosity, noting that the attack was deep in Republic space.
