Jarth Findo was born in the Corellian system and joined the Special Missions Company of the Imperial Army. However, after his company was nearly defeated by Alliance to Restore the Republic forces, Findo deserted. A group of stormtroopers were sent to hunt him down and he was barely able to evade them. Afterward, Findo established a small group of mercenaries, that was based in the Duro sector. The New Republic placed a bounty of 13,500 credits on Findo's head after his mercenaries raided several of their bases.
