- "I'm not a smuggler. I'm just a chef."
- ―"Shady" Pers
"Shady" Pers was a male Human smuggler living among the Myyydril in the Myyydril Caverns during the Galactic Civil War in 1 ABY. The Myyydril claimed he was their chef, but also said that he didn't know the difference between Muon Gold and Bofa treats.
- "Whatever you want, I can get it."
- ―"Shady" Pers
In 1 ABY, Pers contracted a fellow smuggler and spacer to travel to an abandoned Imperial camp in the Kkowir Forest and retrieve a special crate from it. The spacer arrived at the camp to find it being guarded by Blackscale Clan slavers. The spacer killed them, including their apparent leader, a female Trandoshan named Myssith and recovered the crate. Returning it to Pers, the spacer was rewarded with 3,000 credits and a DL-44 named the Black Falcon, which was a duplicate of Han Solo's modified weapon.
Later, he was confronted by an ISB agent looking to obtain a Krayt dragon pearl, which was recently delivered to Pers from Tatooine. In a dark corner of a spaceport on Kashyyyk, Pers and his acquaintances were cornered, and soon most of the thugs choose to escape from battle, leaving Pers alone. Hands tied, Shady had no choice but to hand over the pearl, which could otherwise cost a hundred thousand credits.
