- «Back, hairy vermin, before I have you made into a foot wipe.»
- ―Ulgo threatens the warriors of Bright Tree Village[src]
Ulgo, who claimed to hold the title King Ulgo the Magnificent, was a male Dulok from the forest moon of Endor, where he lived in a cave near the Canyons of Mist. There he was confronted by a group of Ewoks from Bright Tree Village, who had been misled by another Dulok named Vulgarr to believe a monster lived in Ulgo's home. When the Ewoks rescued a group of lantern birds that Ulgo planned to eat, he attempted to attack them but fell to his death in the ensuing struggle.

- ―Pondo is angered by Ulgo's vest[src]
The warriors of Bright Tree Village followed the Whispering River to Ulgo's home using gliders, where Ulgo confronted them and order them to leave his land. The warriors' leader, Chief Chirpa, explained that Vulgarr had misled them, causing Ulgo to show off the Ewok fur vest the other king had traded him. This upset the Ewoks, especially the warrior Pondo, who attempted to attack the Dulok before being constrained by his colleagues. Ulgo reacted to the attempted attack by threatening the Ewoks, who made to leave.
Before departing, however, Warok, the father of Malani, took the caged lantern birds Ulgo was carrying and informed him that the creatures were servants of the Great Spirit of the forest and must be set free. Enraged at losing his breakfast, Ulgo lunged at the Ewok, who side stepped the attack and accidentally knocked the Dulok with his glider, sending the king tumbling off a cliff into the canyon below. At first the Ewoks believed Ulgo would survive the fall by landing in deep water, but a strong gust of wind changed the falling Dulok's path and caused him to land on a large flat rock, which killed him. Chirpa then whispered an oath for Ulgo, as the Ewoks did for any forest creature who died.
Personality and traitsEdit
- «A Dulok? No! Not a Dulok! The king of all Duloks.»
- ―Ulgo claimed to be king of the Duloks[src]
Ulgo lived alone in the Canyons of Mists, but nevertheless, claimed to be king of all Duloks. He considered Vulgarr, another Dulok king, to be a fool because he was willing to trade a fine Ewok fur vest for two lantern birds. When angered by the warrior of Bright Tree Village, the Dulok hissed and spit at them, threatening to use their fur to make foot wipes. An elderly, bent and wizened Dulok, Ulgo had mangy fur and spoke in a deep, growling voice.
- "Vulgarr is a moon-headed fool! I once traded him two scrawny birds for my fine fur vest."
- ―Ulgo becomes angry after Warok takes his lantern birds
At the time of his meeting with the warriors of Bright Tree Village, Ulgo carried a long-handled flint axe and wore a fine Ewok fur vest. He used a small portable wooden cage to contain captured lantern birds, which he used as a light source.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ulgo was created for the children's novel The Adventures of Teebo: A Tale of Magic and Suspense, which was written by Joe Johnston and released in 1984.
