Rycar Ryjerd was the father of Rayc Ryjerd. He was born on Corellia. Oftentimes, he found employment in the Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine, training people to be pilots or to help smugglers make a run. At one point, he was a partner of Nabrun Leids, but they later went their own ways, while maintaining a friendly competition. Ryjerd was an expert gun-runner, and flew weapons for Jabba between Nar Shaddaa and Tatooine. He had a droll sense of humor, and was considered by others to be an idiot. His personal bodyguard was Shud Haloo.

In 3 ABY, he was one of the competitors in a race near Novolek Beacon organized by Mal Biron to select skilled smugglers for employment by Black Sun. His ship was named the Tower.
