Takeel was a Snivvian mercenary and burned-out spice addict who frequented Chalmun's Cantina, looking for employment. He was also known by the nickname "Hunchback".

Takeel at times worked for Durga Besadii Tai, Jabba Desilijic Tiure, and the Galactic Empire, and earned his reputation as a double-crosser from his habit of turning over lawbreakers (including former partners) to Imperial law enforcement.

Takeel was the brother of Zutton. Like all Snivvians, he would sometimes be nicknamed "Snaggletooth" by other species.

Behind the scenes[]

A card from the Customizable Card Game titled "Hunchback" only shows Takeel from behind. The card reads "What hump?", probably a reference to a line from the film Young Frankenstein.

Takeel can be seen in A New Hope with "human hands", as his actor wasn't given gloves or later-produced prosthetic Snivvian hands.

In Insider #130 - "The Unusual Suspects: Who's Who in Mos Eisley" there are discrepancies between the pictured Reegesk's mask and that seen in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The Ranat pictured in this issue of Insider may in fact be Nevar Yalnal however this has yet to be clarified by Leland Chee. The confusion continues with both Takeel and Zutton reversed from their Decipher CCG images. In the Decipher cards Zutton is shown with a full head of hair while in the Insider image he now has patchy hair and a large hump. Takeel is shown by Decipher to have patchy hair and a large hump but in the Insider image he is shown with a full head of hair and a small hump. The identified images of Mosep Binneed and Tawss Khaa also differ from those used by Decipher.
