Smug's could be distinguished by his tan-yellow skin with brown patterns. When hunting, he wore standard Trandoshan hunting garb and preferred to pick off his prey with a sniper rifle.
In hopes of finding escapees in the wreckage, caused by Ahsoka, Jinx, and O-Mer's attempt to hijack a Trandoshan starship, Smug was dropped off on a ledge nearby. Spotting, Ahsoka and Chewbacca in the wreckage, Smug waited patiently for them to move out in the open. He was about to kill Ahsoka when his aim was disrupted by Jinx and O-Mer. After fighting off, the two padawans, Chewbacca attempted to kill him, but was taken prisoner instead.
The next morning, Smug was lead out into the open for Jinx to mind trick him to call for a speeder. Unaffected by Jinx's mind trick, Smug denied his request, only to be hit by Chewbacca afterwards. After Jinx's second attempt, Smug was successfully mind tricked into calling a speeder. When Krix arrived with a speeder, Ahsoka, Jinx, O-Mer, and Chewbacca knocked both Smug and Krix unconscious and fled to Garnac's fortress.
