Trusk Berinato was a male Q'Itane from Upper Etrega who was a friend of Bail Organa. He employed mining droids to work in the mines of the planet Crait. During the Galactic Civil War, Berinato lured Leia Organa, and her crew to his mine shaft, so that a SCAR trooper squadron could ambush them. He shot Han Solo in the shoulder during a duel, before being shot himself by Leia in his hand.
