Velken Tezeri was a human male guard and arms dealer who worked for the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure. Had his D18 force grabbed by Luke just before Jabba sent the would be assassin, and Jubnuk, into the Rancor pit. When Jabba decided to execute the Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker and the smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca by feeding them to the sarlacc, Tezeri was amongst the guards who accompanied the prisoners on a skiff to the Great Pit of Carkoon. During the execution attempt, Skywalker managed to break free and attacked the guards on his skiff. During the fighting that followed, Tezeri was the first of several guards who were knocked into the mouth of the sarlacc.
