Bale was a male individual who was native the planet Veroleem, in the Unknown Regions. Bales was a member of a resistance cell that opposed the Cult of Veroleem, a religious sect that ruled the planet, and the cultists eventually captured Bale and imprisoned him in a jail in the city New Promise. After spending some time in the institution, Bale encountered a group of spacers that had also been imprisoned there and he and the spacers co-operated to stage a jailbreak. Bale then led the spacers to a safe-house that the resistance maintained in New Promise.
