Gru'um Ropple was an associate of Jabba Desilijic Tiure.
During a visit to Jabba's Palace with Miramba—a synthskin-covered droid—Bib Fortuna framed them both by planting a blaster on Gru'um, thus making it seem as if they'd broken the no-weapons rule in his palace. Thus, Gru'um and Miramba were arrested.
While in his cell, he and Miramba let loose a pack of freckers in an attempt to kill everyone and thus be able to attain freedom. Unfortunately for them, Bib and several of Jabba's other minions managed to kill all of the freckers.
