- "Presenting Borbig Drob the Houk! Nine-time champion of the Stormblade Bloodfest!"
- ―An introduction for the Houk gladitor Borbig Drob
Houks were a sentient species with massive forearms who were capable of building heavy musculature. During the early years of the Galactic Empire's reign the Houk gladiator Borbig Drob earned the title of champion at the Stormblade Bloodfest on nine occasions, before fighting at the Gladiator Night event on the planet Lothal. There he fought against the Feoorin gladiator Warjak before being defeated by the Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Houk were first created for the Star Wars Legends novel Han Solo and the Lost Legacy, which was written by Brian Daley and released in 1980. Though Daley's novel is now part of the Star Wars Legends continuity rather than the current canon, the species was first brought back into official canon in the 2014 junior novel Ezra's Gamble by Ryder Windham.
