Most of the pirates in the Brotherhood, including the leader, were fond of the annual Festival held in Tolea Biqua, which was near the pirate base in asteroid L-7. Commonly, the majority of the pirates enjoyed the party. In 31 BBY, Ytram and two other pirates, Triven and Naand were ordered to remain in L-7 during the Festival, as a skeleton crew, much to their chagrin.
During this watch, a team of raiders approached L-7, pretending to be messengers. Ytram tried to mock of them both through the communicator and once they had landed, because he was bored and wanted to improve the moral — mostly his moral.
