The Hutt Gambit
Snoova’s unique appearance adds to his high profile: he has brown fur splotched with black, and he has cut his head-hair into a flat-topped spacer’s style. He also wears a monocle ocular enhancer over his right eye, a piece of equipment he has had surgically rooted in his eye socket due to loosing his right eye in pursuit of a target.
Snoova is a Wookiee bounty hunter and mercenary who has been ostracized from Wookiee society and faces the death penalty on his homeworld, Kashyyyk, due to his violation of the Wookiee injunction against the use of his species’ natural claws for anything other than climbing. Snoova escaped Kashyyyk as an outlaw and largely avoids other Wookiees. He has turned to a life of bounty hunting, and mercenary work. Because Wookiees are an enslaved species under the regime of the Galactic Empire, Snoova specifically pursues bounties posted by the galactic government; his successes gained him such renown that he has been able to travel through the Empire with impunity, and his identification datawork has been altered to name him as his own master.
Snoova prefers to work alone, but he has occasionally teamed up with associates from Aurodium Sword and the Black Sun criminal organizations, as well as with fellow bounty hunters, such as the Ubese Boushh. Snoova’s explosive temper and violent tendencies have earned him a reputation as dangerous among the galaxy’s criminal underworld. Although the bounty hunter knows how to ingratiate himself with clients, he regularly treats his prey with rough-edged contempt. Snoova is capable of stealthily shadowing a target, but his preference for brute force over subtle means manifests in his favored weapons: a vibro-ax and a heavy blaster rifle. Snoova is equally comfortable shredding his opponents with his climbing claws.
