Diddop was a thug whom the Toydarian junk dealer Watto hired to kill the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn following the conclusion of the Boonta Eve Podrace on the planet Tatooine in 32 BBY. Along with four other hirelings, Diddop ambushed Jinn in a deserted Mos Espa backstreet, but the Jedi Master roundly defeated his assailants.
