Hekula was a male Dug and the son of the famous podracer pilot Sebulba. Following in his father's footsteps, Hekula inherited Anakin Skywalker's Podracer, which Sebulba had purchased from Qui-Gon Jinn.
Hekula raced against Anakin Skywalker in an illegal podrace at the Great Dordon Caves on the planet Euceron during the Galactic Games of 26 BBY, but he crashed the podracer by latching it to another pod and abandoning it. This caused his father to forbid him from racing for life.
