At some point, Velken Tezeri became an arms dealer and later obtained a work as guard of the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure. When Jabba decided to execute the Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker and the smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca by feeding them to the sarlacc as Skywalker killed his pet rancor Pateesa, Tezeri was assigned as one of the guards who accompanied the prisoners on a skiff to the Great Pit of Carkoon.
However, during the execution attempt, thanks to R2-D2, Skywalker managed to break free and attacked the guards on his skiff. Tezeri tried to help his comrades to defeat Skywalker, so he took out his gun from his pocket, but Skywalker passed his lightsaber very close to him, causing Tezeri to slip and fall through a skiff's rail. With such bad luck, Tezeri fell to the sand and rolled until falling into the mouth of the Sarlacc, to slowly be digested over thousands of years.
