Tevrin Krit was a Tellarite bounty hunter who owned the merchant ship D-756. He held a grudge against Harcourt Fenton Mudd because Mudd had slept with his sister and stolen a cudgel sacred to his family, which Krit had been planning to give to his son.
While trying to sweet talk Tevrin Krit, the Mudd android characterized him as someone forced to fight for scraps on the fringes [of the Federation], and claimed to see something special in him. He went as far as to say they were kindred spirits.
Krit bought Mudd from a female bounty hunter, or at least believed to have done so, intending to claim the bounty the Federation had placed on him. Unswayed by Mudd's repeated attempts to talk his way out of his predicament, Krit delivered Mudd to the USS De Milo. He was enraged to learn from a Starfleet officer that the "Mudd" in his possession was in fact an android duplicate, and that he had been swindled by the real Mudd in disguise.
