Smuh was a Talz smuggler who worked for Grishnak's organization. In 0 ABY, Imperial forces came to Zarta looking for Grishnak, and the Zartan Jedi Master asked Smuh to take his granddaughter Zeferi off-world. Zarta was destroyed, but Smuh and Zeferi survived. For years, Smuh raised Zeferi as if she were his own daughter. Eventually, Luke Skywalker found out about her and asked for permission to train her as an apprentice. Once Zeferi was at the Jedi Academy, Smuh went back to Alzoc III and lived the rest of his life in peace.
