Ulic Qel-Droma hired this obese man to transport him to as remote a world as possible, so that he could avoid all contact with the galaxy and find peace with himself. A scavenger and salvager by trade, Hoggon was a friend of the Jedi Knights, but was unaware of Ulic's true identity when he dropped the former Jedi on Rhen Var. He then traveled to Exis Station in order to see the Jedi Knights gathered there for the Exis Convocation. Upon leaving the station, Hoggon discovered that Vima Sunrider had stowed away on his ship. He ended up transporting her to Rhen Var, so that she could seek out Ulic. Suddenly realizing that he had two Jedi on his ship and didn't even know it, Hoggon resolved to locate Nomi Sunrider and tell her that Vima was with Ulic on Rhen Var. However, Nomi was not happy with his news, and spurned his offer of passage to Rhen Var. When Sylvar arrived at Exis Station looking for Nomi, Hoggon agreed to take her to Rhen Var, glad to have met a fourth Jedi Knight. When Sylvar was unable to defeat Ulic, Hoggon stole up behind them and shot Ulic in the back with his blaster. Hoggon believed that he would be venerated by the Jedi for killing Ulic, and was surprised when Sylvar nearly killed him.
