Thug was a green-skinned Gamorrean who served as a bodyguard to Jabba the Hutt,[1] a crime lord who operated out of a palace on the planet Tatooine.[2] Thug served alongside Thok, a Gamorrean who left Jabba's criminal empire[3] by 0 ABY.[4] Thug was still working for Jabba when Thok returned to the Hutt's service following the latter Gamorrean's role in assisting the Galactic Empire's Grand Admiral Demetrius Zaarin in a coup against Emperor Palpatine that took place in[3] 3.5 ABY.[5]

In 4 ABY,[6] Thug was one of the Gamorrean guards present in Jabba's Palace at around the time[1] that several Alliance to Restore the Republic operatives arrived in attempt to free their ally, Han Solo, who was held prisoner in the palace.[2] Thug wielded a double-bladed Gamorrean Battleaxe, and was one of the many whom Jabba considered big, strong, and dumb guards who were good individually, and better when utilized in numbers.[1]
