Dussk was a Trandoshan who lived on the planet Genarius during the waning years of the Galactic Republic. Dussk and fellow Trandoshan Corrsk owned and operated the cantina Riboga's Barge, a sail barge that was formerly owned by the Hutt Riboga. The pair were openly disdainful of Riboga and Hutts in general, and when Riboga returned to the Cularin system during the time of the Clone Wars, he sent the assassin Kills to murder Dussk and Corrsk, to make an example of them.
