I hate Dathomir, the atmosphere is always so crappy, but it's the closest spaceport for the jump to kessel.

Wonderful mood and textures here. I love the character and the brief narrative you provided. All of it works perfectly together. I've mentioned this in other posts from other artists, but I'm a science fiction geek with an interest in the old Terran Trade Authority Handbooks and though this features one more visual character than all of those books combined, it has that TTA vibe that came about in the heyday of 1980s SF art. I love that vibe and you've captured it wonderfully here: there's a sense of realism and fantasy perfectly combined and perfectly balanced, and I love the character and his costume. His look implies a lot: almost like his clothing serves a purpose other than the normal sartorial statement that clothing makes. It's almost like he's wearing some kind of smart-suit or is dealing with an environment that isn't exactly friendly to the humanoid form. There's so much to explore in this image and I'm having fun looking at it. Great work!
