BoShek was a male Corellian smuggler with a talent for piloting and a tenuous sensitivity to the Force. BoShek left Corellia to enter the galactic underworld, eventually finding a job piloting ships to and from an outlaw tech transponder-slicing workshop on Tatooine which masqueraded as a monastery. There he worked successfully and learned of the Force, with which he became fascinated, frequently meditating and attempting to access it to little success. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, BoShek set a new record for the Kessel Run, taking bragging rights from his friends Han Solo and Chewbacca. At the end of that run, however, BoShek was pursued by Imperial TIE fighters, which he destroyed, leading to the Empire issuing a warrant for his arrest. BoShek made it safely to Mos Eisley, where he conversed with Obi-Wan Kenobi in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina. Kenobi advised him to move away from his shady position and embrace the light side if he were to wield the Force successfully.
BoShek took that to heart, leaving his smuggling job and settling on the remote world of Stoga. There he lived honestly and simply, meditating frequently on the Force, but to no avail. Six months after the Battle of Yavin, BoShek came across Rasha Bex, who was attempting to flee a Rebel cell which wished to kill her. BoShek did not wish to be drawn into the Galactic Civil War, but agreed to give her a ride to the transport offworld which awaited her. The Rebels pursued them, however, and BoShek had to push his piloting skills and his swoop to the limit to escape them, while he and Bex developed a mutual attraction over the course of the escape. At Bex's rendezvous, BoShek discovered that she was in fact an Imperial agent, and despite her requests to join the Empire, BoShek refused, and was instead arrested. Within a year, BoShek escaped prison and attempted to trace a much-sought-after shipment of ryll spice, but was foiled by another spacer with the same objective.
