Fragments from the Rim
Jabba the Hutt
The Hutt, the Myth, the Legend
Jabba Desilijic Tiure, better known as Jabba the Hutt, is among the most powerful and notorious crime lords in the galaxy.
Jabba governs a large criminal empire located in the Outer Rim Territories from his desert palace on Tatooine. Jabba is one of the most powerful crime lords in the galaxy, even having contact with Prince Xizor, the head of the Black Sun Syndicate.
Jabba suspected that all was not right with his nephew, Teemo, who Jabba had grudgingly allowed to set up shop in Mos Shuuta, on Tatooine. Jabba’s instincts proved to be correct, as Anatta, a Toydarian, sold Jabba information that Teemo was planning on building an army of B1 Battle Droids.
Jabba contacted the Black Sun Syndicate, which advised that an operative, Maru Jakkar, was already on Tatooine. Maru and Anatta met at Mos Shuuta and awaited the arrival of Soz Velik to hash out a plan to obtain proof of Teemo’s treachery.
During the raid on Teemo’s palace, Jabba lay in wait on his sail barge in the Dune Sea. As soon as he had proof in hand, he made a beeline for Teemo’s palace to confront his nephew about his new enterprise.
The meeting did not end well for Teemo, who was shipped back to Nal Hutta. Things went worse for Teemo’s Bith kloo horn player, “Smooth” Banjaxx Wab, who had been spying on Jabba. He became Rancor food.
