Bok Askol was a Pacithhip podracer engineer with gray skin and blue eyes. The alien had followed the dream of becoming an expert mechanic in the hopes of joining a podracing crew. Askol was in the spaceport of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine to attend the Boonta Eve Classic podrace in the year 32 BBY.
Prior to the race, the Pacithhip spent time in the podracer hangar of the Mos Espa Grand Arena where the mechanic spoke with a Quarren next to the podracer of the journalist Clegg Holdfast. Askol then viewed the race itself from the private box of the Toydarian junk dealer Watto in the Arena. The Pacithhip wore a green set of overalls.
