Pigma Dengar is a greedy miser who thinks of nothing but his own personal gain. He was formerly a member of the mercenary team Star Fox alongside Peppy Hare and James McCloud, but betrayed them at the last second and left James to die at Andross's hands. Afterward, he became a member of the ruffian gang Star Wolf, but his overwhelming greed and unreliability got him ejected from the group.
In the English version of Star Fox 64, he is voiced by David Frederick White. In the English version of Star Fox Assault, he is voiced by Lev Liberman.
