Spurch "Warhog" Goa

Diollan male who was a well-connected bounty hunter on Nar Shaddaa. In the Diollan language, the word spurch means brave bug-catcher. Though he attempted to toughen up his reputation by assuming the nickname, "Warhog", his given name was probably apt.
In truth, he wasn't one for direct confrontation requiring impressive bravado. He seems to have preferred operating from the background by collecting fees for doling out information about bounties, rather than bringing in bounties personally.
Thus, he collected credits from the Empire for revealing the location of a Rebel munitions facility on Nar Shadddaa, and he seemed to have created a kind of cult around his past mastery of the illegal arts, leading him to collect a cadre of individuals who, in some way or other, worked for him.
One such individual was Greedo the Younger. After Greedo fled from home and ended up on Nar Shaddaa, Goa became Greedo's mentor. Greedo had prevented Gorm the Dissolver from killing Goa, and the Diollan repaid the Rodian by offering an apprenticeship. However, Goa would later prove that his only true loyalties lie to the "art of the deal". When Rodians from the clan that had killed Greedo's family came looking for a way to get rid of the "last survivor", Goa offered a subtle solution—for a modest fee. He arranged for Greedo to attempt to collect the bounty on Han Solo. It was a task the Diollan knew Greedo would be unlikely to complete. Of course, if Greedo were able to bring Solo to Jabba, Goa (as Greedo's mentor) stood to make a tidy sum off the top of Greedo's earnings.
Like any good businessman, he had bet on Greedo's life, and would win either way.
