"Return mesa to my city, and mesa will swear allegiance to yousa."
―Hoxie, to Boss Gallo[1]

Hoxie was a male Ankura Gungan who was the boss of the city of Otoh Raban on the planet Naboo in the year 3000 BBY. During a period of war at that time between the Gungan tribes, Hoxie was kidnapped by the warlord Boss Rogoe to keep Otoh Raban in the war, leaving the city leaderless. Eventually, Gallo, a Gungan boss who was uniting the tribes against Rogoe, heard about Hoxie's kidnapping from a villager living in Otoh Raban. In order to gain the city's allegiance, Gallo rescued Hoxie from the prison camp, and Otoh Raban contributed more troops to Gallo's Grand Army.


"Very recently, our Boss was taken prisoner by one of the bombad evil tribes."
―A villager living in Otoh Raban, speaking of Hoxie[1]

Hoxie's city, Otoh Raban

Hoxie was a male Ankura Gungan who served as the Boss of the city of Otoh Raban on the planet Naboo in 3000 BBY.[2] At that time, the Gungan tribes were at war with each other, which eventually resulted in Hoxie being kidnapped and placed in a prison camp by the warlord Rogoe, who was controlling the war and wished for it to continue. For some time, Otoh Raban was left without a leader, and its inhabitants were forced to keep training soldiers to defend themselves from the other tribes.[1]

However, Gallo, another Boss who was attempting to unite the Gungans against Rogoe, heard about Hoxie's kidnapping from a villager living in Otoh Raban, and agreed to rescue him. After his ally Marsune told him of rumors of the prison camp where Hoxie was being kept, Gallo led his small army into the stronghold and attempted to rescue Hoxie. When they found him the Boss thanked Gallo for saving him, and told him Otoh Raban would join his crusade if he was rescued. Gallo's forces destroyed the prison camp and freed Hoxie, then proceeded to take him back to Otoh Raban. Upon returning him to the city, Hoxie pledged his allegiance to Gallo, and contributed four repeater militiagungs, Gungans who fired repeating boomas, to Gallo's army.[1]

―A villager living in Otoh Raban, speaking of Hoxie[1]

Hoxie served as the boss of Otoh Raban, and when he was kidnapped by Rogoe, his city refused to stop fighting the other Gungan tribes until he was rescued. Hoxie was very thankful when Gallo rescued him, and agreed to join Gallo's cause to defeat Boss Rogoe to show his gratitude. Hoxie was also a green-skinned Ankura Gungan.[1] Hoxie was also a Gungan surname with an archaic etymology, with a literal meaning of "laughing king" that was a possible reference to some kind of court jester.[3]
