Ugu was a shoemaker in Herku until he discovered the magic recipes of his ancestors. Thereupon, he decided to become a powerful sorcerer and take possession of the Land of Oz as its ruler. He moved away from Herku and built a Wicker Castle in the west of the Winkie Country. After stealing the Magic Dishpan from Cayke, he used it to steal Glinda, The Good Witch of the South's Magic Book of Records and the Wizard of Oz Black Bag of Magic. In the process of stealing the Magic Picture, he was seen by Princess Ozma of Oz, so he kidnapped her and hid her in the form of an Enchanted Peach Pit.

He was finally defeated by Dorothy Gale, who used the Nome King's Magic Belt to transform him into a dove. Realizing how much damage he had done, he asked only to remain a peaceful dove and apologized to Dorothy.
