"Don't say 'smuggler'. I prefer 'freelance pilot for hire'. Speaking of, are you hiring?"

BoShek was a Force-sensitive[4] human male from Corellia who worked as a smuggler and pilot-for-hire during the Imperial Era.[1] He was often hired to transport spice on the dangerous Kessel Run. Like many pilots, BoShek spent much of his downtime in the cantina of Mos Eisley, Tatooine.[5] Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, he was present in the cantina the day Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker were looking to hire a charter for Alderaan. Although BoShek did not take the job, he introduced Kenobi to Chewbacca, the Wookiee associate of the smuggler Han Solo.[2]

Years later, BoShek attended the summit held by Zeva Bliss, where his life was inadvertently saved by Poe Dameron.[6]
