- "Hudso Shaku, leader of the Krypder Riders."
- ―Hudso Shaku
The Krypder Riders were a group of pirates led by Hudso Shaku that were based on the planet Dallenor. After a Jedi holocron was discovered during an archaeological excavation, Shaku and the Krypder Riders attempted to steal it. The Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, who had been sent to investigate the holocron, defended themselves from the Krypder Riders and prevented them from taking the holocron.
- "The pirates! They're here! They must have seen us land!"
- ―Anakin Skywalker
The Krypder Riders operated on the planet Dallenor. When a group of offworlders began an archaeological excavation there, the pirates had issues with it until they found the dug up artifacts to be of no value to them. However, that soon changed when an ancient Jedi holocron was discovered. The Krypder Riders went for a second look at the excavation, forcing Clatriffe, the woman in charge of it, to plant guards around to keep them away.
Shortly after, the Jedi Order sent Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, to collect the holocron. The Krypder Riders noticed their arrival and went to try and seize the holocron. When Kenobi ignited his lightsaber in defense, Hudso Shaku, the leader of the Krypder Riders, ordered his men to seize that instead, seeing more value in it than with the holocron. As the pirates engaged Kenobi, he began incapacitating them. Shaku used Kenobi's distraction to take Skywalker hostage, demanding the lightsaber for his captive's freedom. Skywalker, though, used the Force to lift some stones and knock Shaku down from behind. With Shaku unconscious, Kenobi prompted the rest of the Krypder Riders to leave.
