this green protocol droid was part of a group which was owned by Popara the Hutt. H-3POB served aboard Popara's personal starship, the Imru Ootmian. After the rescue of Mika the Hutt from Endregaad, H-3POB returned to Nar Shaddaa with Vago, Popara's chief aide. When Vago was supposed to meet with the agents who rescued Mika sometime later, H-3POB was assigned to the delegation. Mika himself requested that he meet the agents, so that Vago could continue his own work. This was part of a plot by Mika to "survive" an assassination attempt. Mika had hired Ogo Nan to try and kill him, but had ordered the Cerean to ensure no injury came to living beings. Instead, Ogo Nan was ordered to shoot H-3POB, a mission he carried out with deadly precision. H-3POB was nearly destroyed by Ogo Nan's blast, and its parts were recovered for later repair.
