- "Guess somebody hasn't heard about Hutt vengeance!'"
Dreebo was a starfighter pilot in the employ of the crime lord Bogga the Hutt around 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. In 3999 BBY, Dreebo was chosen to escort a pirate-threatened Ithullian ore hauler that was captained by a man named Gruna. Dreebo, flying in his light tactical fighter, eventually spotted two pirate vessels—one of which was the pirate flagship Marauder Starjacker, captained by Bogga's enemy, Finhead Stonebone—that were trying to siphon the hauler's ore. Dreebo brought around his starfighter in an attempt to attack the pirate ships, but every shot he fired missed its mark. As Dreebo continued firing on the Starjacker, the pirate gunner C'borp destroyed Dreebo's fighter, killing him.
- "Enforcer One to tactical guard–go get 'em, Dreebo! We'll give ya backup!"
- ―An unidentified enforcer, to Dreebo
Dreebo, a male member of a violet-skinned species, worked as an enforcer for the Stenness Node–based crime lord Bogga the Hutt 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. Although Dreebo was not one of Bogga's best, the Hutt trusted him enough to send him on important missions, such as the defense of a Nessie Ithullian ore hauler that was captained by a man named Gruna in the Stenness system in 3999 BBY. Dreebo, flying escort for the ore hauler in his light tactical fighter, came across two pirate ships that were trying to siphon the hauler's load of mutonium. Maneuvering his starfighter around to attack the pirates, Dreebo drew the attention of the main ship, the Marauder Starjacker, captained by pirate leader Finhead Stonebone. However, Dreebo's gunning skills left much to be desired, and every shot he fired missed its target. As Dreebo continued to strafe the pirate ships, C'borp, chief gunner on the Starjacker, aimed his turret guns at Dreebo. C'borp quickly destroyed Dreebo's fighter, killing him. Feeling merciful after Dreebo's death, Bogga decided to withhold Dreebo's service bonus and not charge Dreebo's home clan for the destroyed starfighter's replacement.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "I'm goin' after 'em!"
Although Dreebo was not one of Bogga's best enforcers, he was still trusted enough to be tasked with defending the ore hauler. He was confident in his abilities and would go after his targets eagerly and without hesitation. However, he was a poor shooter in his starfighter, managing to miss every shot that he fired at the pirates.
Behind the scenesEdit
Dreebo first appeared in Tales of the Jedi: The Saga of Nomi Sunrider, the second story arc of the Tales of the Jedi comic book series, written by Tom Veitch and released over 1993–1994. Dreebo solely appeared in the arc's second issue, in which he played a small supporting role and was killed. In this issue, he was illustrated by David Roach.
