Manaroo was an Aruzan female who dated the bounty hunter Dengar during the Imperial Era. She was at one point held prisoner by the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure. After Manaroo had ceased to be Jabba's prisoner, Dengar got into trouble in the Vergesso Asteroids, leaving Manaroo in control of his JumpMaster 5000, the Punishing One.
Manaroo contacted a group of spacers via identity-scrambled comms and arranged to meet them on the outskirts of Mos Entha, on the planet Tatooine. Shortly after the spacers arrived, she landed the Punishing One nearby and met them at the hatch of the starship, imploring the group to aid her in rescuing Dengar.
