B`varn was born during the days of the Galactic Republic. A member of the Old Mandalorians, he grew up embracing the mercenary-for-hire side of Mandalorian culture. In the final days of the Galactic Republic, he had been recruited by a Jedi Knight and her Padawan to help them and a small Clone Commando strike force take down a Seperatist phrik refining facility. It was this Jedi Knight that helped B`varn secretly discover his potential to harness the Force. Two nights later, after the factory had been destroyed and B`varn had left the team, Order 66 was enacted. He stumbled across the Jedi's former camp and found their charred remains and their equipment. Taking what he could, he discovered later on how to build his own lightsaber from their supplies and remains of theirs.
To protect himself from his fellow Mandalorians and the new Galactic Empire, he decided to keep his affluence with the Force a secret, and hide every aspect of it. He bought a clunky R5 astromech unit, and built a secret compartment for his lightsaber. Striking out on his own, he maintained his mercenary as a pilot for hire for certain groups. More recently he struck up with his current team, and has been their pilot ever since. While the team bought smuggling compartments in addition to some other modifications, there are suspicions that there are some compartments only B`varn knows about.
