A smuggler was on the planet Tatooine sometime before 3643 BBY when the smuggler encountered the Houk bounty hunter Boskirn, who was nicknamed "Bantha" on account of his size and lack of speed. The smuggler mocked Boskirn's nickname, enraging the Houk, but when the bounty hunter tried to draw his blaster, the smuggler was quicker and killed Boskirn with a blaster shot before the Houk could fire.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The smuggler was first mentioned in the Codex entry for the bantha in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare in 2011, but the entry did not specify the individual's name, gender, or species.
