"Presenting Dokk Strassi, leader of the Trandoshan family, protectors of the city center and its business territories."
―8D8 introduces Dokk Strassi to Boba Fett[src]

Dokk Strassi was a Trandoshan male who was the leader of the Trandoshan family on the planet Tatooine, working under Jabba the Hutt's criminal empire. Following Jabba's death, the Trandoshans protected the city centre and business districts of Mos Espa. After Boba Fett, a bounty hunter who had once worked for Strassi, took the throne to the late Jabba's empire as the new Daimyo, Strassi went to the palace to pay tribute to him.

When the Pyke Syndicate threatened Fett's rule, the Daimyo gathered Strassi and the other two family leaders of Mos Espa and proposed an alliance against the Pykes. Strassi sided with the don of the Klatooinian family, who wished not to get involved in Fett's feud. The Daimyo them promised to get rid of the Pyke Syndicate and asked that the families remained neutral during his war. Strassi and the other leaders agreed to Fett's terms.

Biography[]

Power struggle[]

"A thousand tidings to the new Daimyo."
"It's an honor to be welcomed to Mos Espa by you, Dokk Strassi."
―Dokk Strassi and Boba Fett[src]

The Trandoshan Dokk Strassi was a crime boss[3] and the leader of the Trandoshan family on the desert planet Tatooine,[1] which operated as part of the crime empire of Jabba the Hutt. The crime boss was one of Jabba's captains, and made much money in his position.[2] The famed bounty hunter[4] Boba Fett,[1] who had been employed by Jabba,[5] worked for Strassi at one point.[1]

In 4 ABY,[6] Jabba was killed during a failed execution[7] and Bib Fortuna, the Hutt's majordomo[8] claimed to be heir to Jabba's throne. As a result, Strassi quickly split his family from the late Jabba's criminal empire, the Aqualish family and the Klatooinian family doing the same.[2] Furthermore, the city of Mos Espa was split between the three,[9] the Trandoshans protecting the city centre and business districts.[1] Fortuna relied on an uneasy alliance with the families to maintain control of his territories,[9] all while Strassi and the other family leaders made attempts to take the throne for themselves, only to be thwarted.[2]

Dokk Strassi brings a Wookiee fur coat to Boba Fett

Around 9 ABY,[10] Fett, having given up his career as a bounty hunter, murdered Fortuna and took his place as the new Daimyo upon the throne. With Fett starting his new criminal empire from the ashes of Jabba's, the Trandoshan traveled to Boba's palace along with a number of other assets within the empire to pay tribute to the new Daimyo. Entering Boba's throne room, Strassi was introduced by the 8D-series smelter droid 8D8 and carried in a Wookiee fur coat as a gift. The Trandoshan paid tribute to Fett, who returned his own compliment. Strassi then handed the fur coat to 8D8 and gave more praise to Fett before leaving. The Daimyo jokingly remarked that the Trandoshan's compliment sounded like a threat.[1]

Preparing for war[]

"As I'm sure you all know, the Pyke Syndicate are mustering troops in Mos Espa. They have slowly absorbed our planet as part of their spice trade. They have bribed the mayor and are draining Tatooine of its wealth."
"We make many credits from the sale of spice in our territories."
―Fett, to the family leaders, and Strassi[src]

In the meantime, the Pyke Syndicate,[2] which had already begun spice trade on Tatooine,[5] bribed Mok Shaiz,[2] the mayor of Mos Espa, into promising Mos Espa to them.[9] With his rule challenged, Fett gathered the leaders of the three ruling families of Mos Espa to have dinner at his palace, Strassi brining several of his associates. During the meeting, Fennec Shand, Fett's master assassin, recounted the past power struggle involving Bib Fortuna and promised the family leaders could thrive once more under the Daimyo. Beginning his part, Fett promised to take no tribute or percentage from the families or provide any the other way. After the Daimyo claimed that the Pyke Syndicate's operations were draining Tatooine's wealth, Strassi insisted that the families benefited financially from spice trade.[2]

Fett proposed and alliance with the families against the Pykes

As the don of the Klatooinian family questioned Fett's claim to the throne, Fett's rancor disturbed the meeting from below the floor, causing Strassi and the other attendees to promptly rise from their seats. Easing his beast, the Daimyo had his guests seated again, and proposed that they form an alliance against the Pykes. The Klatooinian don was skeptical about joining a fued that so far did not involve the families, Strassi agreeing with him. As a result, the Daimyo promised to get rid of the Pyke Syndicate himself, asking only for the families to remain neutral in the process. Conversing with one of his associates Strassi agreed with Fett's new terms, the Aqualish leader Garfalaquox and the Klatooinian don doing so as well. With the families in agreement, they raised a toast at the dinner table. The guests eventually went back to their speeders and departed from the palace grounds.[2]

Personality and traits[]

"May you never leave Mos Espa."

Strassi was reluctant to involve his people in Fett's issues

A Trandoshan male, Dokk Strassi had green skin and yellow eyes.[1] When greeting the new Daimyo, Boba Fett, he bowed respectfully[3] and extended a compliment to him.[1] Strassi was skeptical about joining Fett's power struggle with the Pykes, seeing profit in the syndicate's spice exports sharing the Klatooinian boss's concerns about expending their people in a fight in which they were not already involved with. However, the Trandoshan was open to not taking a side in the war.[2]

Equipment[]

Strassi wore blue, red and black clothing with a necklace.[1] He traveled by speeder when attending a meeting with Fett and the other family leaders of Mos Espa.[2]
