The mayor of the small settlement was Gramm Rile, an older individual who cared a great deal about his citizens. Lorne Prestar acted as the Chief of Security for the city. It was also the former home of Ackli. Additionally, the xenobiologist Dusque Mistflier and the Imperial scientist Tendau Nandon once investigated a krayt dragon graveyard located near the city.
During 1 ABY, Mos Taike was vulnerable to repeated Tusken Raider attacks. The mayor pleaded with both the Empire and Jabba the Hutt for protection, but to no avail. Fortunately, with the help of a devoted spacer, the city managed to gather enough citizens to repel a massive Tusken raid.
The city itself could be described as a small backwater town on a small backwater world. Still, it was home to a number of notable venues, such as the Third Sun Cantina. This establishment, managed by a Bith named Stella doubled as both a cantina and a medical center. The city also had a number of other facilities, such as a garage for vehicle repairations, but it lacked any kind of shuttleport for incoming travellers.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Mos Taike was one of many cities on Tatooine that players of the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies could visit, prior to the games closure on December 15, 2011. However, unlike the other cities on Tatooine, Mos Taike was the only one which lacked a shuttleport for easy transport to and from the town.
