Velken Tezeri is a minor antagonist in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
He was portrayed by stuntman Larry Holt.
Tezeri was an arms dealer in the employ of Jabba the Hutt. When Jabba decided to execute Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Chewbacca by feeding them to the Sarlacc in the Great Pit of Carkoon, Tezeri was one of the mercenaries assigned to guarding them on the sand skiff when they were executed. However, Luke's droid R2-D2 managed to slip him his lightsaber, and he broke free and began fighting his guards. In the ensuing skirmish, Tezeri attempted to shoot Luke, but Luke slashed at him with his lightsaber. Tezeri managed to dodge, but lost his balance and fell into the pit, where the Sarlacc ate him.
