Gerraba, a Wookiee, ran afoul of Jabba the Hutt circa 3 ABY. Jabba posted a small bounty on the Wookiee in retaliation.

Nilesk and her assistant Opdoa, two officials with the Rodian bounty hunter's guild (the Goa-Ato) sent rookie hunter Fask Eelak of the An'yettu clan after Gerraba. They did not expect her to survive the hunt, though they admitted a successful hunt would result in Eelak earning an Atiang award if her success would be verified. Due to her clan's unpopularity with the regime of Navik the Red, Grand Protector of Rodia, they intended to make verification of her success difficult.
