Summary
Barada was a male Klatooinian slave and mechanic who worked as the head of Jabba the Hutt's pool of repulsor vehicles, as well as guard and captain of his own vehicles on the planet Tatooine. While Barada should have been able to buy his own freedom with the salary Jabba paid him, the Hutt had tricked his slave, charging him for room and food and precluding him from being free again. Despite this, Barada was believed to be a loyal servant, with Jabba giving him responsibilities, subordiates, droids, and a number of would-be luxuries. Barada was reasonably content with his lot in life, and became friends with Jabba's spy Ephant Mon, although other people at Jabba's Palace, including the Gran drunkard Ree-Yees, preyed on Barada.
Not long before the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon, Barada conspired with Jabba's Quarren accountant Tessek and the bounty hunter Dengar to place a bomb on Jabba's Ubrikkian luxury sail barge, with the intent of killing the Hutt crime lord. His plot was discovered in advance, but Barada was not informed of this. Soon afterward, Barada drove a skiff of prisoners to their scheduled execution at the Great Pit of Carkoon. One of the convicted individuals, Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker, struggled with Barada and the other guards, and Barada was killed in the ensuing fight.
