Pagetti Rook was a skiff guard employed by Jabba the Hutt. He would capture banthas to maintain his religious practices, and subsequently sacrifice them as part of a battle ceremony. Tusken Raiders would not appreciate that practice. Riding on the first skiff during the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon in 4 ABY, he prodded Luke Skywalker with a force pike,[3] forcing him to walk the plank. Rook was killed by Skywalker when Luke jumped back on the skiff.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Star Wars: The Action Figure Archive first provided the nickname Queequeg for this character; however, this was only a production nickname. Leland Chee still referred to this character as "Weequay hunter"[4] and later named him Pagetti Rook in Star Wars Insider 143.

Queequeg is a fictional Polynesian harpononer from Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. The Weequay species were named after the Polynesian Queequeg[5] but were originally named Queequay by the crew of Return of the Jedi.[6]
