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
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.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Old Republic about ten to twelve years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2 takes place ten years after the treaty, one week after the mission to Nar Shaddaa, and around the time of the SpecForce Incident. Since the mission and the incident are respectively part of Act I of the Jedi Knight and Republic Trooper's storylines, and the Trooper's Act I occurs concurrent to Act I of the Smuggler storyline, the general events of the Prologue and Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. places
