Before the invasion of Naboo by the Trade Federation, Dess Lamalech was the fastest racing
boater on the Naboo seas. Frequently chased by the local autorities on charges of reckless
endangerment, Dess became a hero on Naboo when after the queen disapearred, he began
smuggling weaponry through the swamps and riverways for security forces and rural militias.
Later during the war, Dess mounted an illegal dual laser cannon in the rear compartment so
he could have a gunner assist in the protection of his assets.
