Pru Sweevant was a Narquois male who worked as a bandit around thirty years after the Battle of Endor. Using contacts in the Mining Guild, he learned the schedules of vulnerable convoys and raided them. He was present in the pirate Maz Kanata's castle when the smuggler Han Solo entered with the scavenger Rey, the former stormtrooper and the astromech droid BB-8. Shortly after the four newcomers arrived, many of the patrons of the castle rushed outside to witness the destruction of the Hosnian system by Starkiller Base, a super weapon controlled by the First Order. The castle itself was then attacked and destroyed by the First Order's forces. While in the castle, Sweevant wore a yellow outfit and carried a blaster pistol with an amplified galven chamber that provided a more intense blast. He had red eyes and blue skin and hair, which acted as camouflage amongst the fungus forests of his homeworld Narq.
