Teak was a Aqualish from the planet Ando. He frequented the Cantina in Mos Eisley until his cousin, Ponda Baba, started some trouble there one day. After that he was often seen at Richard Pryor's Star Wars Bar. He did check out the Cantina once more, to see if the night crowd was any different. He heard some of Ackmena's singing, and decided Pryor's place was definitely the place to be.
