Born to the cruel Cradossk, leader of the Bounty Hunters Guild on Trandosha, Bossk made a name for himself hunting escaped Wookiee slaves, a dangerous profession for just about any Species aside from the Trandoshans. Bossk expanded his targets to include non-Wookiees, giving him fame and credibility as a skilled bounty hunter.
It was during these early years that Bossk had his first encounter with Han Solo and his partner Chewbacca. After cornering the pair on a planet that served as a refuge for escaped Wookiees, he tried to take Solo's partner alive, a deed that would certainly improve his standing among his peers. He failed, and Solo destroyed his ship, stranding the bounty hunter on the wretched planet and leading to the grudge that Bossk would carry for the rest of his days.
When he finally escaped on the newly purchased Hound's Tooth, Bossk returned to his homeworld to find the Bounty Hunters Guild in tatters. Bossk murdered his father and devoured his remains, just as the guild collapsed into two warring factions. The savagery of Bossk's act catapulted him to head of the Guild Reform Committee- those younger bounty hunters committed to the destruction of their rivals, the true guild, which they believed had long outlived its usefulness.
As the guild disintegrated, Darth Vader handpicked Bossk and other hunters to hunt down The Millennium Falcon. Although Bossk's fellows saw this as a great opportunity to bring in Han Solo- the bounty on his head was quite steep- Bossk wanted Chewbacca. His efforts ultimately failed as setback after setback, most of which were orchestrated by Boba Fett, brought him to the brink of ruin, culminating with a stint in prison.
