Rako Hardeen was a male Human bounty hunter who operated during the Clone Wars. Hardeen possessed exceptional sniping skills and quickly came to be known as one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy during the Clone Wars. His abilities with a sniper rifle ultimately earned him the title: "The Marksman of Concord Dawn."
Rako Hardeen's arsenal included a sniper rifle, blaster pistol, and smoke grenades. He also owned a BARC Speeder. The helmet Obi-Wan Kenobi selected from Pablo's pawnshop while disguised as Hardeen could protect the wearer from dioxis.

He then went to the Trueping's bar so that he could tell everyone about his success. One of the servant droids told him that his payment is waiting for him in the other room. He walked into the dark, and saw Obi-Wan Kenobi disguised as him. Kenobi told him to give him his clothes, but he started to turn back until Mace Windu stopped him, who was also there. Kenobi soon dressed as Rako, while Windu recorded bounty hunter's voice using a vocal emulatorso that Obi-Wan could use it. After Kenobi was ready, Windu put Rako to sleep.
