The Rucksack of the Tusken King was a backpack crafted from the skull of a young krayt dragon. The pack was owned by the Tusken King, leader of a Tusken Raider tribe.[1] While ostensibly a display of power, it was fully functional as a backpack.[1][2] When the Tusken Raider tribe attacked the city of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the King wore the pack into battle. When he was killed and his tribe defeated with the combined efforts of the townsfolk and a group of spacers, the rucksack was looted from his body.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Rucksack of the Tusken King appeared as a wearable container (or backpack) in the 2003 MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided. It was added to the game on November 1, 2007 with the introduction of the Tusken Army heroic instance. The chance of looting a Tusken King Rucksack schematic from the Tusken King's corpse was rare. Once looted, the schematic required a character of the Domestic Goods Trader profession to learn and craft the rucksack. The rucksack could hold slightly more items than a regular backpack, and it gave several significant increases to the player's combat statistics when worn.[1] It also appeared as an "Item" card in the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game set Squadrons Over Corellia and was a reward for all players who completed the Tusken Army "Heroic encounter" that was released concurrently with the set.
