Purong was a pale-skinned Ganimed bounty hunter present at Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina in the city of Mos Eisley on the planet of Tatooine before 0 BBY. During one visit to the cantina, Purong engaged in a shootout with the Ariwook Rff Huff. The Ganimed wore brown shorts, a vest with a bandolier, a band around the left wrist, and brown boots. Purong also carried two blasters in holsters around the hip.

- The Mos Eisley Cantina Pop-Up Book shows that Greedo was alive when Purong visited Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina. Since Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which is set in 0 BBY according to The New Essential Chronology, depicts Greedo's death, Purong must have gone in the cantina before 0 BBY.
