- "My master didn't give me what I want, what the fuck?
Now I got a glock, makin' motherkriffers duck
Shit is real, and hungry's how I feel
I rob and steal because that money got that whip appeal"
Originally a protocol droid assigned to protect the valuables of passengers aboard a luxury liner, 4-LOM blew a fuse and became obsessed with stealing and covering himself head to toe in bling, cruising the mean streets in his landspeeder with the top down, gunning down rivals, dousing his circuits with Cristal, and laying down dope beats at his personal studio on Tatooine. A droid of many talents, 4-LOM became not only a bestselling gangsta rapper, but also a producer and character actor. He hit it big with Straight Outta the Factory, then followed up with Programming Said Knock You Out and Strictly 4 Mah Inorganixx, each album going quadruple platinum. From there, however, his career began to fizzle, and his dangerous lifestyle caught up with him. His nighttime drives going rat-a-tat-tat with his gat and never hesitating to put a meatbag on his back eventually landed the droid in prison.
Hard up for cash, 4-LOM joined a bunch of other bounty hunters in searching for Han Solo. He and Zuckuss teamed up again, but found themselves competing with Boba Fett, Dengar, Bossk, and IG-88. IG-88 and 4-LOM took an instant dislike to each other, leading to a East Droid/West Droid feud that reignited interest in 4-LOM among the hip-hop community long enough for him to record a comeback album, Cool Like Carbonite.
Tragically, 4-LOM was gunned down in Mos Eisley sometime during the New Republic era. But perhaps someday, if he's lucky, some annoying Jedi kid will rebuild him. He was rebuilt by his friend Zuckuss.
Years later, 4-LOM and Zuckuss were hired by Thrawn 2, the clone of Grand Amiral Thrawn, to lead his army. LOM commanded a large number of troops now, and led a number of successful attacks. He was in charge of the attack on chandrilla where Elmo.jr was hiding, but was destroyed early in the battle when he and most the troops were oblitarated by a frontline Cannon.
