279 ABY, Rodia
The Rodian who would become known for keeping up the highest bounty score in the known Galaxy was born to humble origins, starting in Daroota Village on the southwestern quadrant of Rodia. Being the fifth son of his family, Veeta was given as an "i'cho'boska": a "gift-child" from his mother to his mother's sister-in-law, Joota, as Rodian tradition dictated.
Young Veeta was treated much as an indentured servant would have been, although receiving the benefit of familial relation kept him better-fed and better cared for than the other hired servants in the house of his uncle Guurbo Bakko, who happened to be the local Hetman and moderately wealthy by Rodian standards.
In 285 ABY, Guurbo was killed by Tanwa Clan members, and Veeta was sent to Guurbo's brother Leeso, who had influence in the criminal underworld of Rodia.
By the time he had reached young adulthood, Veeta Nask had begun working as an enforcer and collector for the Slobult Syndicate on Rodia. An important and influential criminal organization, the Syndicate covered smuggling and drug running operations not only on Rodia, but on a number of other systems in the sector.
