In [[3 ABY/Legends|3 ABY]], while terrorizing the citizen's of Mos Eisley, Spiker was attacked by a [[Human/Legends|Human]] on a swoop bike; he was sent sprawling to the ground, and he and Gizz furiously announced the Human's death. Before Gizz could pull the trigger of his [[Blaster/Legends|blaster]], Spiker's attacker identified himself as [[Wrenga Jixton|Jix]]. His defiant attitude impressed Gizz, who decided to take him to Jabba and induct him into the swoop gang. Spiker reluctantly agreed, though he was still angry at Jix for his attack. They arrived at Jabba's Palace and informed the Hutt of Jix's joining the group, though Jabba expended it little attention; news had come in of a [[Bounty/Legends|death mark]] placed by [[Black Sun/Legends|Black Sun]] on a prominent [[Alliance to Restore the Republic/Legends|Rebel]] named [[Luke Skywalker/Legends|Luke Skywalker]]. Skywalker had been spotted near Obi-Wan Kenobi's hut on Tatooine, and Jabba sent his swoop gang to the area to attempt to kill him. Confident of their prospects against the [[Jedi Knight/Legends|Jedi Knight]]-in-training, they set off toward Skywalker's location.<ref name="SOTE">''[[Shadows of the Empire (comics)]]''</ref>

They made inroads towards Kenobi's hut, and planned to sneak up on Skywalker and surround him. Their plans were ruined by Jix, who began firing earlier than Gizz ordered, giving Skywalker a warning and allowing him to find shelter. Using his [[Lightsaber/Legends|lightsaber]], Skywalker fought off several of the bikers, commandeering a swoop bike and using it to flee towards [[Beggar's Canyon/Legends|Beggar's Canyon]]. Spiker and his comrades were quick in pursuit, though Gizz and Jix were both incapacitated when their swoops collided by accident. Skywalker's quick maneuvering proved too much for many of Spiker's fellows, who crashed into rocks jutting out from the cliff face, though Spiker was able to evade any obstacles. Numerous other attempts of Skywalker's to throw Spiker off his bike failed; however, with most of his comrades downed, and with the arrival of Skywalker's ally, [[Dash Rendar/Legends|Dash Rendar]], on another swoop bike, Spiker decided to give up their pursuit and called a retreat. Jix had managed to survive his crash and teamed up with Spiker before they visited Jabba to explain their failure;<ref name="SOTE" /> according to Jix, Gizz had been killed when his head was crushed by his swoop bike.<ref name="JabbaTape" />
