Kugg was a character featured in the comic book series Star Wars: Droids. He is considered an "s-canon" character as his existence predates any consistent effort to maintain continuity within the Star Wars Universe.
Kugg was the regional governor of a district on the planet Dodz in the years leading up to the Galactic Civil War. A cruel, greedy and petty official, Kugg maintained dominance over his constituency through fear. His enforcer was a giant and deadly droid known as the Destroyer. Kugg consistently raised taxes, driving away many of the local merchants and crystal miners. Those that refused to pay Governor Kugg often received a visit from the Destroyer who demolished their home and property. The City Council members of Dodz wished to oppose Kugg, but feared retribution from his Destroyer.
The droids C-3PO and R2-D2 came to Dodz several years ago and befriended a young boy named Jost Ellon. Together, they refurbished an antiquated droid known as the Ranger X-One. When the Destroyer began making trouble for the locals, they unleashed the Ranger X-One, who ultimately succeeded in destroying the Destroyer. Left without anything to protect him, Governor Kugg attempted to flee. The planetary city council members arrested him and he appeared before an Intergalactic Trial. The findings of the court are unrecorded, but it is reasonable to assume that Kugg never returned to Dodz.
