Sebulba was a former slave who had bought his freedom with his incredible skills at piloting a high-speed podracer. Before long, Sebulba became the star racer of the Galactic Podracing Circuit, based not only on his formidable racing skills but also his penchant for violence. Many fellow podracers were killed or injured by Sebulba's reckless steering or out-and-out cheating, but Sebulba was far too popular to be blamed or penalized.
Sebulba was a Dug from the city of Pixelito on the planet Malastare. As with most Dugs, Sebulba was belligerent, aggressive, and constantly felt the need to prove his superiority over anybody else. Despite their camel-like facial structures, Dugs are arboreal, and can use all four of their limbs equally. Sebulba preferred supporting his weight with his arms and performing fine tasks (like piloting his podracer) with his legs.
Sebulba spent his earnings on a decadent lifestyle enjoyed by very few Dugs. His prize possessions were a pair of Twi'lek sisters who were skilled masseusses. Sebulba also had his hands in several slaving rings for Gardulla the Hutt, possibly as retribution for his own miserable experiences as a slave.
In the year of the Battle of Naboo, Sebulba was the obvious favourite to win the Boonta Eve Classic. However, he was overtaken by local slave boy Anakin Skywalker, and his famous podracer was destroyed in a crash. It was a temporary blow to Sebulba's reputation and ego, but Sebulba recovered quickly: purchasing Anakin's podracer, he showed up his rivals at a race on his home planet of Malastare the following season. Sebulba went on to win many more races, with his brutal competitive edge.
Sebulba's ultimate fate is unknown, but some sources indicate that he perished in a crash shortly before the Galactic Empire outlawed podracing.
Around the time of the Battle of Endor, a Dug named Pugwiz was seen on several underground racing circuits who claimed to be Sebulba's grandson (not unlikely, considering the fact that Sebulba often used his fame for cheap dalliances with Dug females). While Pugwiz was just as violent as his grandfather, he was not nearly as skilled a racer.
