General Bio Edit
Appearances: Return of the Jedi
Faction: Guardians of Jabba the Hutt
A skiff guard was a mercenary or slave assigned to work on a skiff. A skiff guard's duties included defending the skiff and keeping prisoners in line. Some skiff guards also acted as pilots. Jabba the Hutt kept a contingent of skiff guards to operate his fleet of sand skiffs. This contingent consisted largely of Klatooinians, Niktos, and Weequays. They wore no special uniform and were armed with a motley assortment of weapons, including vibro-axes, vibrostaves, and DL-18 blaster pistols. All of these skiff guards fell victim to either the Sarlacc, or a faster less painful death at the hands of Luke's blade during the attempted execution of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca at the Great Pit of Carkoon.
