"Mutt" was a smuggler at Marlowe Trading Post. He had large bulging eyes and bumps on his nose.
Mutt usually moved goods but sometimes moved people instead. He moved Andrew Ballenger and Colin Phash, the latter a powerful psychic child wanted by the Terran Dominion Ghost Program, to Gohbus Moon.
Some time later he met a wrangler, Randall, whom he was acquainted with. Randall asked him if he knew where the fugitives were, breaking his fingers to ensure an honest response. Randall then attached an explosive to Mutt's back, which would explode if Randall died. When Mutt asked what would happen when Randall got out of signal range, Randall simply smiled and left, intending for Mutt to be blown up.
