General Pepper was promoted to General of the Cornerian Army many years before the Lylat Wars. He was a close colleague to Dr. Andross, but showed a great animosity towards him. When Andross's experiments got out of hand and killed many lives, Pepper had him exiled to the quarantine planet, Venom. Years later, when Andross began his climb to power, Pepper hired his old friend James and his team to check on Andross. The team was betrayed by member Pigma Dengar, James was killed and Peppy barely escaped to tell the tale. Pepper always felt responsible for the event and began to take on a role in the life of James's son, Fox McCloud.
The War Against Andross
When the Lylat War broke out, Pepper hired the new Star Fox team, now led by Fox. While the Star Fox team made their way to Venom, Pepper gave them advice on the areas that they visited. After the fall of Andross, Pepper asked Fox if he would join the Cornerian Army, but Fox cut him off and said no.

After Fox returned to his ship, Pepper contacted the team and sent them their payment.
