A member of the original Starfox team alongside Fox's father, James McCloud and former friend, Pigma Dengar, Peppy Hare is considered somewhat of a war veteran. Often credited as the sole survivor of the Battle of Venom, where James was killed and Pigma betrayed them.
Before the Starfox team was even started, Peppy, James and Pigma were all graduates from the Cornerian Academy and Peppy married his Academy sweetheart, Vivian and later had a daughter together naming her Lucy. Around the same times, James also married Vixy who gave birth to Fox.
When they first started the Starfox team, they quickly became known as heroes, with their own Base Of Operations, the Great Fox and advanced space fighters developed by another Academy friend of theirs, Beltino Toad, named Arwings, the team became the one group to call upon in times of need.
However, the glory days were not to last. After the death of Vixy, in what appeared to be an accident though the truth was far more insidious, a scientist named Andross grew mad and unleashed a bio-weapon he developed in secret on Corneria's capital. After his capture by the team, he was handed over to the military and General Pepper had him banished to the barren planet of Venom for his crimes.
Five years passed. And all seemed to be going well. James, though distraught over Vixy's loss, was raising his son well and from the looks of his performance in the Academy would soon be as good, if not better, than his father as a pilot.
Lucy was also studying well, Slippy had taken after his father but chose the path of mechanic rather than scientist and a new youth named Falco Lombardi had become close friends with the others. Peppy and Vivian were also happy in their marriage, for all intents, the future seemed good.
However, the team soon got a new call from General Pepper, alerting them to strange activity....coming from Venom. To team were assigned to investigate; what they found when they reached Venom was something they could never have prepared for.
Andross was alive and had amassed a huge army, all for the purpose of taking over the Lylat system. The team was overrun and outnumbered and on top of all that, Pigma, their close friend, betrayed them to Andross for money.
Peppy and James were captured and tortured, soon after they attempted an escape, however, only Peppy made it out alive. When he returned home, he faced the difficult task of telling Fox he was now an orphan.
However he promised to take Fox in and teach him everything he knew in order to avenge his father.
Peppy quickly became a second father to Fox teaching him many ideals that his real father shared.
Roughly two years of training later and Fox was ready to lead the newest generation of the Starfox team, Peppy became the team's strategist, whilst Slippy served as mechanic and Falco became their ace pilot. Peppy's experience in combat proved to be the team's edge over Andross' soldiers, often recognising weak spots in an enemy's defense.
Among the many foes encountered, one was a group particularly put together to combat Starfox, the Starwolf team, among them; Peppy's old team-mate and traitor, Pigma Dengar, still only concerned with getting rich. Pigma was now a far cry from the team-mate Peppy once knew and he was forced to engage him in combat.
Peppy and the team survived all their encounters with Starwolf, even when the opposition acquired better, more high performance ships.
Nevertheless, Peppy was forced to stay on the sidelines when Fox wished to battle Andross alone.
Patiently waiting in orbit, Peppy was relieved to see Fox emerge victorious from Andross' destroyed lair.
They returned as heroes. Rather than accept the offer of joining the Cornerian military, Peppy respected Fox's wishes of doing things their own way, feeling he had become more like James was than ever before. They returned to patroling the galaxy and Peppy could finally rest from his position of a war hero.
