- “He'd sell his mother to Jawas for a couple of credits.”
- ―Hera's opinion about Vizago[src]
Cikatro Vizago was a male Devaronian, who served as a crime boss on the planet Lothal.
Cikatro was the leader of the "Lothal Underground", a crime organization. He carried out most of his deals in the outskirts of Tarkintown, and had a neutral relationship with the rebel crew of the Ghost, who occasionally took up jobs from him.
Working With the Lothal Rebels
One of many jobs the rebels accepted from Vizago included stealing from an Imperial outpost in Capital City. After narrowly escaping Imperial hands, the rebels returned to Vizago's meeting point near Tarkintown. Rather than paying the rebels fully, Vizago then offered the rebels the location of some Wookiees slaves. The rebels then followed Vizago's directions to an Imperial shuttle. However, the rebels arrived in an Imperial ambush. While the crew initially believed Vizago sold them out, they eventually decided the ambush wasn't his intention.
Salvage mission on Garel
Soon after, Vizago requested the rebels' assistance on a operation on Garel. This mission included the theft of T-7 Ion Distruptors, which were banned across the galaxy. After successfully stealing the guns, the crew returned to Vizago. Before receiving their payment, however, the transaction was interrupted by an Imperial Freighter. Not wanting to face the wrath of the Empire, Vizago left the rebels for dead.
Searching for Kanan
When Kanan was captured by the Imperials, going against Hera's orders, Ezra, Sabine and Zeb went to see Vizago in hopes of getting some Intel from him. At first Vizago refused to help them because their ongoing Rebellion had caught a lot of attention from the Empire which has made things more difficult for him. However, despite Sabine's protests, Ezra managed to get Vizago to change his mind by telling him about Kanan's Jedi identity and revealing his force-sensitive abilities. Satisfied with what he had seen, Vizago brought Ezra aboard his ship for a private conversation. He revealed to him that since the Empire destroyed their communications tower, they no longer had long range communication and were now using droid carriers that took data from the city up to their communications ship in orbit. Data that could possibly help the Rebels find Kanan. For this information he brokered a deal from Ezra that he would return the favor once he called upon him, regardless of whatever it might be.
Trouble With Hondo Ohnaka
Later, Vizago undertook a mission to deliver five power generators to the crime lord Azmorigan on the frigid planet of Nixus. On the way, Vizago encountered the Weequay pirate Hondo Ohnaka, who stunned him and then imprisoned him on his own ship. Hondo also managed to seize the Broken Horn and disable his droids. Before being knocked out, Vizago managed to send a distress signal that was picked up by the rebels Ezra and Chopper. When the two rebels confronted Hondo, the pirate claimed that Vizago had lost the Broken Horn in a sabacc game.
Hondo then convinced Ezra and Chopper to assist him in a mission to sell power generators to Azmorigan. After escaping Azmorigan, Ezra and Chopper discovered Vizago in a holding cell in the Broken Horn's brig. Vizago revealed the truth and enlisted Ezra and Chopper's help in reclaiming his ship. Reclaiming his master controller from Ezra, Vizago used his droids to attack Hondo, Ezra, and Chopper. Hondo managed to escape on the Phantom. Furious at losing both his proceeds and merchandise, Vizago dispatched Ezra and Chopper back to the planet Garel in an escape pod. Unknown to Vizago, the Phantom had been programmed to fly back to the Ghost. The rebels allowed Hondo to keep his ill-gotten proceeds but seized the power generators.
Personality and Traits
Vizago was, for the most part, a reliable source of income for anyone willing to risk their lives on his missions. However, he was never hesitant to make a last-minute bargain, nor was he willing to affiliate himself with any Imperials.
Vizago also had capable knowledge of weapons, an important trait in his field of work. However, he tended to leave most of his shooting to his IG-RM droids.
Vizago seems to have some form of respect for Ezra, as he was the only member of the Ghost Crew who understood business.
Weapons and Gear
Cikatro wielded a unique blaster, which he named "Vilmarh's Revenge". His crime organization consisted mainly of IG-RM droids, whom he controlled. Additionally. Cikatro was also the owner of the Broken Horn, his own personal transport ship.
