- "Your tauntaun'll freeze before you reach the first marker!"
"Then I'll see you in hell!"
- ―Tigran Jamiro and Han Solo
Born on the planet of Onderon, Tigran Jamiro served at the Rebel Alliance military headquarters for much of the Galactic Civil War. Initially serving on Dantooine, he moved with the high command to Yavin 4, and was still based there when the Galactic Empire attacked the moon following the destruction of the first Death Star.
He remained with the Rebellion, transferring to serve as Senior Logistics Officer at Echo Base on Hoth. In that position, all new personnel arrivals at the base reported to him. In 3 ABY when Han Solo prepared to leave the base with his Tauntaun to search for Luke Skywalker, who had recently went missing, Jamiro warned Solo that his Tauntaun would not make it very far before dying.
By the time of the Yuuzhan Vong War, he had achieved the rank of general, and he led the New Republic forces that attacked Ylesia and apprehended Thrackan Sal-Solo and rogue Senator Pwoe. In Jamiro's command was Lilla Dade and his commandos and some pilots of the Twin Suns Squadron, including the Jedi Knights Jaina Solo and Lowbacca.
The New Republic Forces quickly discovered Thrackan Sal-Solo, and former Senator Pwoe, as well as members of the Peace Brigade. The mission proceeded well, despite some minor delays, until the arrival of enemy reinforcements by space. Lowbacca and Jaina, who had felt the threat a few moments before, had made them hurry, but they needed all the coolness of General Jamiro, capacity of the Jedi Jaina and Lowie, and shooting accuracy of the Twin Suns Squadron, in order to make it out alive and leave with their prisoners.
