The “Star Wars” universe is not only made up of Jedi and Sith, it is also full of many bounty hunters and outlaws of all kinds. Here are 10 cult criminals from the “Star Wars” universe, outside of the Sith, that viewers may have encountered during the saga.
N ° 10 – Greedo
Descended from the Rodien race, he grew up on the planet Tatooine before becoming a renowned bounty hunter. During The Clone Wars, he worked for the Federation of Commerce, before joining Jabba the Hutt’s troops after the fall of the Republic. Greedo appears several times during the Galactic Saga. Its first appearance dates back to 1977 in New hope, the time of a short scene where he meets Han Solo. The two men offered one of the best scenes of the film, the time of a iconic showdown in which Han Solo takes down the bounty hunter. It remains to be seen who shot first …
In 1999 George Lucas decides to incorporate the young Greedo in The Phantom Menace. The future bounty hunter, then still a child, argues in particular with Anakin Skywalker after the module race. Finally, the character does some appearances in the animated series The clone wars, under the direction of the Federation of Commerce.
N ° 9 – Bossk
Bossk is a powerful Trandoshan bounty hunter. He is a fairly famous character among aficionados of the universe Star wars, even if it remains relatively rare in mainstream productions.

The Sith Lord directs them to find the crew of the Millennium Falcon. The rest, we know it. It is Boba Fett who finally finds their trace, helped by Lando Calrissian, and delivers Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt.
Bossk hates Wookies, especially Chewbacca. Often employed by the Galactic Empire for criminal operations, he is a character who has no mercy, and generally uses very violent methods. During The Clone Wars, he is employed by Jango Fett to protect his son. Subsequently, Bossk and Boba Fett will however become enemies.
