The Hutt Gambit
Bossk (meaning “Devours His Prey” in Dosh) is a male Trandoshan bounty hunter who pilots the Hound’s Tooth and holds the title of monarch of the Qotile system. He is not particularly fond of Chewbacca and his Human partner Han Solo, and has face them several times. He has also been a frequent partner and foe of both Boba Fett and Zuckuss, both fellow bounty hunters.
Bossk was born on Trandosha, the son of Cradossk, the leader of the Bounty Hunters’ Guild. After hatching, Bossk devoured each of his unhatched siblings, which made his father proud. As was customary for a Trandoshan, Bossk began his career by hunting Wookiees, typically considered suicidal if attempted by any other species. During this time, Bossk made a name for himself and began accepting bounties on non-Wookiees as well, becoming one of the galaxy’s most feared bounty hunters.
As the direct heir of the Bounty Hunters’ Guild, Bossk had been plotting his father’s demise for some time. The Guild was everything to the brutal hunter, and he refused to watch his father’s senile claws destroy what was rightfully his. After enacting a brutally efficient plot to overthrow Cradossk and set himself up as leader, Bossk went on a bounty with Boba Fett, IG-88B, Zuckuss, and D’harhan where he narrowly avoided an assassination attempt by Zuckuss (who was working with Cradossk) by bribing the other hunter to his side. Bossk returned, to the surprise of his father, and violently murdered him using his father’s own weapon, an ornamental dagger, and devoured him as the Guild complex erupted into a massive firefight. After this, however, the Guild had been split in half. Bossk was the leader of the Guild Reform Committee, which consisted mostly of younger hunters, and was fixed on destroying the True Guild, which he saw as old, lazy hunters.
