“Do it and I'll blast your choobies all across the back wall.”—Karl Mathieu Ancher
Karl Mathieu Ancher was a Human male smuggler who was the master of Drake Paulsen, and was well known as one of top fathers of modern smuggling on the world of Socorro. Sometime in 3 BBY, Ancher and Paulsen were imprisoned on Omman, and though they eventually escaped with the help of Tait Ransom, Ancher was forced to have a cybernetic leg fitted as a result. Ancher later retired to Socorro and established the Black Dust Tavern. He was also one of the three owners of the Ethra Brewery, and gained a reputation as one of the most honest businessbeings on Socorro.
