- "Krix and Smug should be back by now."
- ―Lagon ponders Krix's whereabouts
Krix was a Trandoshan male hunter and pilot who was a member of a hunting guild that hunted sentient beings. During the year 20 BBY, Krix partook in a series of hunting outings that were to serve as the first hunts of guild boss Garnac's son, Dar. Krix witnessed Dar's initiation ceremony, but the young hunter was killed the following day. Later, Krix flew a hover pod to the site of the guild's crashed HCT-2001 Dragonboat-class Reugeot 905 freighter in order to pick up the hunter Smug. However, Smug's request for a pickup was a trap, and Krix was knocked out by the Wookiee captive Chewbacca who then, alongside several Jedi allies, stole the hover pod. After a skirmish dissolved Garnac's guild, Krix moved on to the planet Nal Hutta.
A dangerous gameEdit
- "We have found new prey for the hunt. The youngling will provide great sport."

Krix was a Trandoshan male big game hunter and pilot who was a member of a hunting guild led by fellow Trandoshan Garnac. The guild was known for capturing live, sentient beings and dropping them off on the moon of Wasskah, where they were hunted for sport.
During the year 20 BBY,, Krix co-piloted the guild's HCT-2001 Dragonboat-class Reugeot 905 freighter to the planet Felucia, which had become the site of a battle between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems as a part of their ongoing Clone Wars conflict. Accompanied by Garnac, his son Dar, the hunter Lo-Taren, and Lagon, the ship's pilot, the Trandoshans had captured a slew of prisoners by the time they reached Felucia. These captured beings included the Snivvian Katt Mol, the Terrelian Jango Jumper Lika, the Selkath Morgo, and the Sakiyan Vadoo. Krix and Lagon landed the ship in a Felucian jungle and Lo-Taren disembarked alone to find potential prey. When the Trandoshan returned, he had the Jedi padawan Ahsoka Tano in tow, who had been participating in the Clone Wars battle.
In the presence of the Reugot freighter's pilots, Garnac expressed excitement over the capture, believing that Tano would prove to be a challenging hunt for Dar's upcoming first outing. The Trandoshans left Felucia for Wasskah shortly after, and under Garnac's orders Lagon piloted the ship to Wasskah's Island Four, where the prey was released. Lo-Taren manned one of the freighter's laser cannons and promptly killed two of the prisoners on the island's beach, forcing the survivors to run and find cover.
The hunt beginsEdit
- "Dar! Dar! Dar!"
- ―Krix and the other hunters chant Dar's name
The next day, Krix was present for Garnac's endorsement of the new hunt and along with the other Trandoshans, Krix took up arms and rode a hover pod to the island to hunt the prey. Following the first day of hunting, Krix was present on Garnac's floating fortress for Dar's initiation ceremony, who would then participate in his first hunt the following day. Along with the other Trandoshans, Krix cheered Dar on as the young hunter celebrated the coming hunt. However, Dar was killed by the captive Jedi Ahsoka Tano, effectively bringing his first hunt to a swift end. A few days later, Tano, along with two other Jedi captives, downed the Trandoshans' Dragonboat-class freighter on Island Four's beach, freeing the sole Wookiee prisoner, Chewbacca. Krix investigated the crash during the daytime, and helped pull the body of the pilot Clutch out from the wreckage. That night, the hunter Smug went to the crash site in order to hunt the Jedi.
The next morning, Krix flew a hover pod to Island Four in order to pick Smug up per the hunter's request. Little did Krix know, the Jedi had used a Force mind trick on Smug, as they wished to steal the hover pod in order to directly attack Garnac's fortress. Krix found Smug waiting, but upon landing, Krix was attacked by Tano and thrown from the pod. The Trandoshan was about to go on the offensive but was confronted by Chewbacca and knocked out with a single punch.
Chewbacca and the Jedi took the hover pod to Garnac's fortress, and with the help of Wookiee reinforcements, they killed the remaining guild members, leaving Krix, Smug, and the hunter Ramy as the only surviving members. Krix and Ramy later relocated to the planet Nal Hutta, where they blended in with the populace of the Bilbousa Bazaar.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "Get in. Let's go."
- ―Krix whilst picking up Smug
Krix was burly Trandoshan with green-colored skin and orange eyes. The stocky Trandoshan was excited by the prospect of Dar joining the hunt, and eagerly chanted the young hunter's name during Dar's initiation. Upon being attacked by the Jedi, Krix was prepared to go on the offensive, but was visibly intimidated by the appearance of the towering Chewbacca.
