- "Tasu Leech. Good to see you."
«Wrong again, Solo. It’s over for you, and for your associate.»"
- ―Han Solo is surprised by the entrance of Leech and the Kanjiklub.
Leech refused to speak a word of Galactic Basic, considering it a "soft language for soft people." Tasu Leech had defeated many would-be usurpers to his command, as the Kanjiklub tradition went that the leader may be challenged to combat by his underlings, for control of the position. He wielded a "Huttsplitter" blaster rifle, custom made by his lieutenant, Razoo Qin-Fee. The Huttsplitter earned its name due to the history of the Kanjiklub's home planet, Nar Kanji, that used to be subjugated by the Hutts. The human colonists later overthrew the Hutt Cartel, and struck out on their own. Tasu Leech wore lightweight armor, and a plastoid blast jerkin.
