Description: Windy Starkiller otherwise known as Windom Marstrap was a Human, and a childhood friend of Luke Skywalker when he lived on Tatooine. They often spent time with Luke at Tosche Station.
Windy's parents would sometimes visit Luke's aunt and uncle at the Lars homestead. When they were thirteen, Luke and Windy became lost in the desert and found themselves face to face with a Krayt dragon. They were rescued by Obi-Wan Kenobi, who they only knew as hermit Ben Kenobi. When Windy and Luke were brought back safely to the Lars' homestead by the Jedi, Owen angrily chased Kenobi away.
By their late teens, the friends were part of a group of youths that included Biggs Darklighter, Janek "Tank" Sunber, Laze "Fixer" Loneozner, and his girlfriend Camie. The teens spent time hanging around at Tosche Station in Anchorhead, and raced their skyhoppers for fun.
When Biggs was accepted into the Imperial Academy, the friends and other locals threw him a party that was broken up by attacking Sand people.
Windy would often serve as a foil to Luke's dreams of leaving Tatooine to join the Academy. Once, when Windy found Luke replaying a Space Academy Recruitment tape for a countless time, they told their friend that he should grow up and be content with the life of a moisture farmer.
Some time later, just before the Tantive IV was captured by Darth Vader above Tatooine, Luke challenged Fixer to a dangerous skyhopper race through Beggar's Canyon and through the eye of the Stone Needle. Windy flew along with Luke during the race, squealing with fear the whole time. They were frightened by Skywalker's reckless flying and called him "crazy."
Windy last saw Luke on the morning Biggs confided in Luke about his plans to join the Rebel Alliance. Windy, along with the rest of their friends, told Luke that they did not believe he had actually seen a firefight in the skies above Tatooine.

How can he have black hair when his hair is blonde in the picture?

They changed the hair colour several times throughout his appearances. He's officially got black hair, but in the comics he was blonde, and when pictured in Star Wars Tales I even believe he was brown haired, check out the pictures they use on the Wookieepedia page, he's a veritable rainbow of hair colours. :)
