- "You know there's only one thing I don't like about slitting open a Hutt…a target that big is way too easy."
Yonak was a Rodian male who was a member of the Son-tuul Pride. He was the successor to his father and held a grudge against Darth Vader and Sutha the Hutt for killing him. He attended an auction for Eternal Rur that was hosted by Doctor Chelli Lona Aphra and held at the Sorca Retreat space station.
At some point, Yonak was buying a droid, while knee deep in waste. It was on that occasion he met Chelli Aphra. Yonak's father was the leader of the Son-tuul Pride, the leading criminal organization on Son-tuul. Following his fathers death, however, Yonak was forced to take his place.
A short while after ascending as leader of the Son-tuul Pride, Yonak represented them at the auction of the Eternal Rur, a technopathic A.I copy of a long dead member of the Ordu Aspectu stored in a giant Kyber crystal. He and his companions were greeted by 0-0-0, Aphra's murderous droid, and told to mingle and drink with the other guests until Aphra, the auctions host, arrived. Yonak saw Sutha, a servant of Jabba the Hutt and the alleged murderer of his own father, and tried to start a fight with her. Aphra, though, arrived to prevent this from happening.
Aphra started her presentation of the Eternal Rur, explaining it and it's technopathic abilities. When a blue Cyban Front droid countered that technopathy was impossible, Aphra allowed Rur to possess that droid to disprove his point. The droid was promptly destroyed by Aphra's muscle, Black Krrsantan, to keep it from being a threat. When the presentation was done, Aphra promised to meet everyone and see what they offered her for Rur. Aphra assigned 0-0-0 and his astromech companion BT-1 the chore of repairing the Cyban Front droid who protested.
Yonak and Sutha made a deal to join together and give themselves a better chance of winning. If they won the crystal, they would fight it out between themselves to see which organisation would get the prize of Eternal Rur, Yonak representing the Son-tuul Pride and Sutha representing Jabba.
When the auction was finally won by the Shadow University, the blue Cyban front droid, once again possessed by Eternal Rur, went on a rampage of killing people with his blue lightsabers and automatic guns, supposedly possessed by Rur, started firing. It turned out that 0-0-0 and BT-1 had put the Rur crystal inside the blue Cyban Front droid and set the guns to auto-target. 0-0-0 also called Darth Vader himself about the auction and Darth Vader and Imperial stormtroopers arrive.
When Rur started to target Yonak, Yonak and Sutha extended their deal to take out the blue Cyban front droid and take the crystal with the same ending of them fighting it out between themselves. When Aphra is summoned by 0-0-0, she makes 0-0-0 free as part of a deal that 0-0-0 won't kill Aphra in return. Yonak and Sutha find a position where they use Dean of Shadow University as bait for Rur. Unfortunately for them, Dean dies when Yonak and Sutha think Aphra is Rur. They both try to take Aphra as bait but she escaped before they could.
Eventually Yonak, Sutha and Aphra got caught between Rur and Darth Vader duelling and his stormtroopers fighting the guests. Yonak escaped by using someone as a body-shield and Aphra did the same but used Sutha as a body-shield. Sutha died shortly afterwards. Yonak found a ship where all the stormtroopers guarding it were dead. 0-0-0 and BT-1 arrived and they revealed that they killed the stormtroopers for Yonak but only so they could board with him.
Shortly afterwards, Yonak was attacked for raiding fellow criminals of whom he previously had an alliance with. When they entered the throne room, they found Yonak sitting on the throne with 0-0-0 behind him. Yonak pleaded for help and BT-1 killed the raiders. Crying, Yonak congratulated his new masters.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "And don't worry. We wouldn't insult you by insisting on taking your weapons for safekeeping."
"Because you know the only way you'd get one of my blades is straight through your head."
- ―0-0-0 and Yonak
However, Yonak loved and respected his father enough to try murder his father's killers, although he was cruel enough to use Dean as bait and selfish enough to use one of his allies as a body-shield so he could live. He was soon reduced to a blubbering slave after the events at the Sorca Retreat space station.
Yonak was a green Rodian with one purple eye and one cybernetic eye. He wore drab and dirty armour.
