Biology and appearance
The Houk were a sentient, humanoid species distinguished by their muscular bulk, and large arms that ended in four-fingered hands. They had tiny eyes set deep in their thick, bone-ridged skull.
A number of wars were waged between members of the Houk race and the Weequay species. During the Separatist Crisis, a brawl erupted between members of the two species.
Owing to their powerful builds, Houk prisoners were found in large numbers in the spice mines of Kessel.
Some found employment as gladiators. During the early years of the Galactic Empire's reign, Borbig Drob earned the title of champion at the Stormblade Bloodfest on nine occasions, before fighting at the Gladiator Night event on the planet Lothal. There he fought against the Feeorin gladiator Warjak before being defeated by the Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk. At some point during the Galactic Civil War, another Houk fought alongside a Red Nikto and a Trandoshan. Although they had a single opponent, the Wookiee known as Krrsantan, the Houk and his fighting partners were all killed in the pit.
Around 5 ABY, the Houk siblings Jorgatha and Gorgeous Su served in the New Republic's 61st Mobile Infantry on the planet Troithe.
