Bok Askol was a Pacithhip podracer engineer[1] with gray skin and blue eyes.[2] The alien had followed the dream of becoming an expert mechanic in the hopes of joining a podracing crew.[1] Askol was in the spaceport[2] of Mos Espa[3] on the planet Tatooine to attend[2] the Boonta Eve Classic[4] podrace[2] in the year 32 BBY.[5]

Prior to the race, the Pacithhip spent time in the podracer hangar[2] of the Mos Espa Grand Arena[3] where the mechanic spoke with a[2] Quarren[6] next to[2] the podracer of the[6] journalist Clegg Holdfast.[4] Askol then viewed the race itself from the private box of the[2] Toydarian[6] junk dealer Watto in the Arena. The Pacithhip wore a green set of overalls.[2]
