Summary
Kam Nale, also known under the alias "Elan Mak," was a Fluggrian male professional Podracer pilot who flew an outdated Kurtob KRT 410-C around 32 BBY, during the final decades of the Galactic Republic. The son of the crime lord Borzu Nale, Nale received his inheritance early when the Glymphid hitman Aldar Beedo murdered his father. Nale sought to avenge his father's death and vowed to track down Beedo, following him to the Outer Rim world of Tatooine, where Nale discovered that Beedo had entered as a contestant in the upcoming Boonta Eve Classic Podrace. Nale began to use the pseudonym "Elan Mak" in order to join the race without raising suspicions, all the while hoping to be able to eliminate Beedo by shooting him during the race. Nale's craft was too slow to catch up to the Glymphid but managed to finish in fifth. Realizing that he enjoyed the sport, Nale continued his career with it. Nale, now officially known as "Elan Mak" in the Podracing circuits, furthered his racing career by adopting a more aggressive track personality. He eventually gained fame on the Dug Derby racecourse on Malastare, achieving the status of crowd favorite. Victories did not cloud his overall mission, however, as he continued to chase Beedo from race to race. Nale at some point regained control of his father's criminal empire but continued to Podrace. However, rather than pursuing Beedo himself, Nale used his newfound criminal funds to send numerous mercenaries after Beedo and bring him to justice. Around 22 BBY, Beedo was captured by one of the mercenaries and was brought back to Nale's headquarters, where the Glymphid was to face judgment. Right around the same time, the name "Elan Mak" was publicly exposed to be the crime lord Kam Nale. Beedo's capture and Nale's exposed identity were just two of several scandals that called for the sport of Podracing to be placed under scrutiny.
