Osuno Whett was a tall, gray-skinned humanoid with a high-pitched voice and an inability to make a decision. He did, however, have very definite goals of conquest and power, and his image of himself was bolstered when he underwent surgery to have bonemer implanted in his legs, arms, shoulders, and spine to increase his size. A native of the Lekua System, Whett was a renowned scholar there, earning the title of Ottdefa there before becoming an Associate Professor of Comparative Sapient Studies. He was assisted by the droid Vuffi Raa, who was sent to Whett by Rokur Gepta. Together they discovered the Renatasian System and its primitive human inhabitants. Whett saw the Renatasians as simple, ignorant people, and he planned to use them to further his own ambitions. He worked for 700 days with Vuffi Raa, who the Renatasians regarded as a deity, keeping a low profile as Vuffi Raa's assistant while arranging an invasion of the system by an Imperial fleet. The Renatasians later blamed Vuffi Raa for the invasion, since the droid seemed to be the controlling things, and Whett fled with the droid before the truth could be told. Whett then found work as a research anthropologist, working for Duttes Mer in the Rafa System before coming to the Oseon System, where he did some research on the Sharu. Little did Whett know that Mer was working with the Tund Sorcerer Rokur Gepta to locate the Mindharp of Sharu and use it to control the system. They used Whett to help them locate all the various Sharu legends, and then sent him to the Oseon System to seek out all possible candidates who fit the description of the Bearer. When Whett encountered Lando Calrissian, he tricked Lando into winning the droid Vuffi Raa, who was being held on Rafa IV as a stand-in for the Emissary of Sharu legend. Whett was further pulled into Gepta's web following Lando's recovery of the Mindharp. Whett was commissioned by Gepta to study the Oswaft, and determine how they could best be used to further Gepta's plans for power. Whett tried to secretly determine what kind of creature Gepta was, but was unable to so, because his role in the destruction of the Renatasian invasion was discovered by Klyn Shanga. Shanga turned his forces loose on Whett's tiny ship, which was connected to Shanga's battleship pinnace by a tractor beam. Shanga used the beam to maneuver Whett's ship into a side-on collision with the Wennis, vaporizing Whett and his ship while destroying the Wennis and her crew.
