Biography (Canon)

Early Life and Career

An inesctoid male with large and noticable compound eyes, Zuckuss was born on the planet of Gand, the homeworld of the species of the same name sometime before the rise of the Galactic Empire. He was a findsman, a mystic group of Gands, and used his uncanny tracking abilities to his advantage and worked as a tracker. When the Findsmen traditions were beginning to die out on his homeworld, Zuckuss decided to leave the planet and become a successful off-world bounty hunter instead and was the first of the Findsmen to go down such a path. He would bring with him the needed equipment to have him survive the oxygen-filled atmospheres of the rest of the known galaxy and grouped up with 4-LOM on multiple occuasions during various different missions. Despite Zuckuss being uncanny and uneasy, the two of them were a powerful team and flew together on his ship, the Mist Hunter, which Zuckuss filled with gasses to remind him of his homeworld. 

Capturing Beris Ford

During one of their missions, Zuckuss and 4-LOM captured a small-time criminal by the name of Beris Ford. He was kept onboard Zuckuss' ship and was kept for ransom and were to sell him in exchange for tractor beam repairs.
