- "I've never seen anyone boost a landspeeder so fast. How'd you learn?"
"My father taught me."
"Is your father a bounty hunter, too?"
- ―Ezra Bridger and Bossk
Cradossk was a Trandoshan male and the father of the bounty hunter Bossk. A seasoned warrior and respected bounty hunter, Cradossk had a rivalry against the Wookiee chieftain Tarfful, and by the time of the Clone Wars, Cradossk's son gained a reputation for hunting Wookiees. Despite adopting Cradossk's trade, Bossk was reluctant to talk about his father with the human Ezra Bridger.
- "If you don't ask me any more pesky questions about my father, I won't ask about yours. Take it from me, kid. Fathers are overrated."
- ―Bossk, to Ezra Bridger
A Trandoshan male, Cradossk was an experienced warrior and respected bounty hunter active during the Clone Wars and Age of the Empire. Like other Trandoshans, Cradossk had a fierce rivalry with the Wookiees of Kashyyyk, including Tarfful, a Wookiee chieftain who fought against Trandoshan hunters.
Several years before the Clone Wars, Cradossk's son, Bossk, was born on Trandosha, the Trandoshan homeworld, and Cradossk eventually taught Bossk how to steal landspeeders. Like his father, Bossk became a bounty hunter, joining the Bounty Hunters' Guild and becoming a renowned Wookiee hunter. In 5 BBY, during a mission on the planet Lothal, Bossk hired the street urchin Ezra Bridger as a guide. When the young human asked questions about Bossk's father, the Trandoshan became annoyed, stating that fathers were "overrated."

Although unidentified, Cradossk first appeared in Ezra's Gamble, a junior novel written by Ryder Windham and published by Disney–Lucasfilm Press on August 5, 2014 as a prequel to the animated television series Star Wars Rebels. Bossk's father was later pictured and identified as "Cradossk" in Star Wars: Galactic Defense, a mobile-game in which Cradossk and Tarfful were unlockable characters during the limited-time event "Fierce Enemies." Cradossk's first Star Wars Legends appearance was in The Mandalorian Armor, a novel written by K. W. Jeter and published in 1998.
