For a time, he served as Jabba's right-hand man, before eventually being replaced by Naroon Cuthus several years before the Battle of Yavin. In 0 BBY, Boelo visited Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina, and shortly afterward accompanied Jabba to Docking Bay 94 in Tatooine's Mos Eisley spaceport, where the Hutt spoke to smuggler Han Solo over a debt the latter owed Jabba.

Boelo in Docking Bay 94

The Human male[1] Boelo[2] lived[1] during the early years[3] of Galactic Civil War, a conflict between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic. At some point, he joined the crime lord Jabba the Hutt's criminal empire on the planet Tatooine,[1] becoming the Hutt's right-hand man, and was eventually replaced in that position by Naroon Cuthus. He also owned a pet womp rat named Worra.[2]

In 0 BBY,[4] Boelo was present at the bar of Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina within Tatooine's Mos Eisley spaceport when a farmboy named Luke Skywalker and a Jedi Master named Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived, looking for a pilot to take them and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 to the planet Alderaan, ultimately meeting smuggler Han Solo. Boelo later accompanied Jabba on a visit to Docking Bay 94 in the spaceport. He stood near the entry ramp of Solo's YT-1300 light freighter Millennium Falcon when Jabba intended to collect a debt Solo owed the crime lord. After Solo arrived and made a deal with Jabba, the Hutt and his entourage, including Boelo, left the site.[1]

Boelo sported a blaster pistol, and carried an ammunition bandolier across his trench coat.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Boelo first appeared as an uncredited extra in the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, as a patron extra in the Mos Eisley cantina scene. He was also in a scene cut from the film, among Jabba's henchmen confronting Han Solo later on in the spaceport. The scene would be added into the film's Special Edition, released in 1997.[1] One year later, in 1998, Boelo was first named, and given a brief backstory, on a card for the Star Wars Customizable Card Game's Special Edition Limited expansion set.[2]
