Three years after the start of the Chat Civil War, Fear enlisted and immediately was almost killed when the cruiser he was stationed on took a direct hit from an Orbital Defense Platform. He and only a handful of others managed to survive. He was given command of a carrier of his own after seven years of service, and held the position during the bombing of Yavin V. He was a war hero by this point, and was given the command of the Fourth Fleet of Trolling.
Some time later, Fear was given command of one of the Chats most sophisticated vessels, the Imminent Victory. He commanded it alone until the Battle of Eafth, when Grand Troll Yarkin temporarily overruled his command of the ship. He helped send security personal to find the escapee Fox McCloud during the Battle of Eafth as well.
