Summary
Orrimaarko, known to many as simply Prune Face, was the Dressellian governor of Sreeharlo and eventually a resistance fighter and key figure in the liberation of his homeworld, Dressel. He was xenophobic, particularly toward Humans, and when the Empire subjugated Dressel around 10 BBY, he and his fellows took up arms and fought back, becoming masters of guerrilla tactics. Aided by their allies, the more technologically sophisticated Bothans, who provided them with advanced weaponry and mercenary training, a Dressellian rebellion was formed with Orrimaarko at its helm, effectively fending off the Empire. They became embroiled in a war lasting over a decade, which mostly occurred at small engagements in the planet's dense forests.
When the Bothans allied with the Alliance to Restore the Republic, an invitation to the Alliance was issued to Orrimaarko and his people, which they reluctantly accepted. Orrimaarko became the first Dressellian to take command of an Alliance Special Forces team; however, he and his colleagues were often mocked and ridiculed behind their backs by the predominantly Human Alliance, which he viewed with much concern. In 3 ABY, Orrimaarko served at Echo Base during the Battle of Hoth. One year later, in 4 ABY, the Rebels conducted a strike against the Empire's second Death Star at Endor, with a strike team disabling the superweapon's shield on Endor's surface. Based on his experience, Orrimaarko felt that he should have been selected to lead the mission, but instead, Han Solo, a man whom Orrimaarko felt was far less qualified, was chosen and made a general. Orrimaarko went to Endor as part of Solo's team and played an invaluable role in the Alliance's victory at the pivotal Battle of Endor, but he was quick to berate Alliance officials for what he saw as Humanocentrism and favoritism. With their homeworld eventually purged of any Imperial presence, the Dressellians returned to their reclusive, xenophobic ways despite becoming a member state of the New Republic.
