Four-Lom is an Industrial Automaton Protocol Droid from the LOM series of droids. Originally assigned the position of a general servant aboard the “Kuari Princess” a famous star liner cruising ship. He was to simply attend to the needs of pampered aristocrats and galactic senators. But Four-Lom found little challenge in these menial tasks. “Droid! Fetch me another glass of Tarysian Ale” or “Droid My Lower Back is in Pain, relieve it.” were the commands that would ring through Four-Lom’s Auditory circuits daily… and this annoyed him a great deal. Over a some time Four-Lom began to engage the ships computer in Idle and seemingly harmless conversation. Eventually these conversations led to passengers losing valuable trinkets and other items. Four-Lom had been getting the computer to help him steal items he then black marketed for credits. The most precious item Four-Lom acquired this way was the famed Ankarres Sapphire, which he profited a mighty sum of 500,000 credits.
This led the droid into his new career as a master thief. Jabba the Hutt
learned of the rebellious droids talents, and had him fitted with an illegal programming mod that allowed Four-Lom to work as a hired gun, a hit droid if you will. It was Jabba he suggested that he team with a fellow Bounty Hunter, by the name of Zuckuss
, Zuckuss was the famed Gand
finds man. Zuckuss was known amongs the Hunter circuit as “the Uncanny One” for his unusual but successful methods for capturing or eliminating his targets. So of course Lom Jumped on this opportunity. Four-Lom had hoped to learn the organic ability of intuition from Zuckuss.
Four-Lom and Zuckuss’ first team up was to find the Yavin Vassilika, and over the years the achieved much recognition and reputation in the Bounty Hunter world. But that was cut short when Zuckuss was affected with a life threatening Lung Injury. This resulted in the Team accepting a job from the Rebel Alliance that would pay for the Medical Assistance that Zuckuss direly needed now. It was a mission to capture an Imperial Governor by the name of Nardix. This put them in a bad position with the Empire.
In an attempt to return to the Empire
’s favor they accepted Lord Vader
on the Millennium Falcon
and her Crew. To infiltrate the Rebel Alliance, Lom and Zuckuss rescued the crew of a Hoth
evacuation transport which was in bad shape and under heavy trooper attack. They safely returned the entire crew of the vessel to the Rebel Fleet. General Rieekan personally thanked the Duo. Touched by the feeling of helping the innocent, the team abandoned their plans, and Joined the Rebel Alliance
as official members.
Four-Lom factored that he had a 98.4% chance to be the one to start the official Rebel Bounty Hunter’s Guild. As part of the Rebel Special Forces division Lom was assigned the task of retrieving Han Solo
from Boba Fett
. However Fett easily outsmarted Lom, and Blew him into pieces in an epic battle on the “Slave-1”.
Despite Zuckuss finding and repairing Four-Lom to functioning Status. Four-Lom was never fully repaired and did not function properly. He lost most of his memory and protocols, except for his illegal ones, and from then on lost all moral associations and continued his Bounty Hunting Career carrying out his missions without Mercy or Regret. He even teamed one last time with Zuckuss, although they now viewed the Galaxy in separate outlooks.
