The Hassks were a species of hairy, near-feral subhumanoids. Around the time of the Cold war, a number of Hassk thugs were roaming seedy areas across the galaxy with their littermates. One such group, known as the Hassk triplets, spent time at the castle of Maz Kanata.
Biology and appearanceEdit
Hassks were a species of subhumanoids. Their bodies were almost entirely covered with cream-colored fur. Their faces, however, were hairless, revealing grey skin. They had sensitive ears, two large forward-facing eyes that could be orange in hue and gave them a keen night vision. Their mouths were filled with flesh-tearing fangs.
Society and cultureEdit
Despite being sentient, the Hassks had a fierce behavior, suggestive of wild animals, and their culture was primitive. Multiple births were known to occur among them, with the siblings being referred to as littermates.
Hassks in the galaxyEdit
When they were first confronted with advanced technology, the Hassks were not prepared for its impact on morality. Consequently, many of them left their home to roam the galaxy with their littermates, making trouble in places of ill repute.
One Hassk was serving as a member of the Gray Gundarks speeder bike gang when they attempted to claim the lost treasure of the Sith Lord Count Dooku on the planet Ponemah Terminal sometime after the Battle of Endor.
Varmik and his two brothers, the Hassk triplets, were know to attend the castle of the pirate Maz Kanata around thirty years after the Battle of Endor. While those thugs often attempted to create mischief in the castle's main hall, other beings kept the peace.
