Wanted by Airen Cracken and the New Republic for murder of New Republic personnel and destruction of New Republic property, as well as theft, the bounty hunter Cragus 12 was as mysterious as he was dangerous.
The male bounty hunter Cragus 12 was considered to be a mystery. His origins and the reasoning for naming himself Cragus 12 were unknown, but he worked for a variety of employers including individuals, organizations and the Galactic Empire. Rumors regarding Cragus 12's origins included the speculation that he was either a clone or a droid. He worked primarily in the border region between Imperial and New Republic space during the early years of the New Republic, and was known for his upfront and openly violent methods of capturing a target. Unafraid of causing a commotion, Cragus 12 would often inflict thousands of credits worth of property damage, but would leave non-targets unharmed.

During the early years of the New Republic, Cragus 12 was wanted by the New Republic Intelligence Service for the murder of New Republic personnel, and the destruction of New Republic property. The reward for his capture was 50,000 credits.
