The shko-yagu was a ritual in the Trandoshan society. A ritual that signified the person's rebirth and transition over the midpoint of life, it involved contemplation, fasting, and required the person to constantly hunt throughout it. At the end of the ritual, the Trandoshan was required to consume a flake of their molted skin.

The hunter Qyzen Fess was known to have completed this ritual sometime during the Cold War.
