Biography

Zerimar wore a gray Mandalorian armor, with golden markings on the right half of his armor, and a small, charcoal handprint of his baby adorned his helmet. He favored a Verpine sniper rifle.

He accompanied Goran Beviin along with other Mandalorian commandos to meet Fett at Zerria's Bar on Drall to discuss whether to accept Thrackan Sal-Solo's commission to fight for the Corellians and defend Centerpoint Station from the Galactic Alliance while it was being repaired. Ram decided—just like the others—it was best not to get involved.

Zerimar later accompanied Fett and several other Mandalorians when Fett was hired as backup by Admiral Daala during the Battle of Fondor. When they stormed Bloodfin in order to take down Imperial Moffs, Ram formed the backup in a Tra'kad, together with Ghes Orade.

Behind the scenes

Ramirez at Celebration IV

The character Ram Zerimar is based on Raymond Ramirez (surname anagram to Zerimar, and "ram" is the first syllable in "Ramirez"), an American soldier (a sniper) with a special connection to Star Wars and Karen Traviss. His blog Mando'ade and their toys was featured on starwars.com [1]. Ramirez wrote into Star Wars Insider praising Traviss's writing in Hard Contact, and was thanked for his advice in the acknowledgments in Triple Zero, True Colors and Revelation. Revelation was also dedicated to him.

Ramirez is also the man behind the Verpine sniper rifle and the Tra'kad (as mentioned in the acknowledgments of Revelation). He custom-build a helmet of Kal Skirata for Traviss, as well as the Verpine sniper rifle, which is his design.

His first name, Ram, might also derive from several Mando'a words, most likely the word "ram'ser" for "sniper". Other possible words it derived from might be "ramaanar" ("to die"), "ram'ika" ("raid") or "ram'or" ("to attack/to besiege"). His last name derives from the Mando'a adjective "serim" for "accurate/correct", and originally, his clan name was Serimar, but the "S" was replaced by the "Z" for a better understanding by non-Mando'a-speakers.
