The Kintan crushers, also known as Kintan enforcers and a host of other names, were a species of powerfully-built creatures from the planet Kintan in Hutt Space. They were related to the semi-sentient Kintan striders, a species they surpassed in intelligence. Indeed, the Kintan crushers' obedience and ability to follow complex orders made them a favorite source for enforcers for members of the Hutt Cartel, and the species had been subject to centuries of domestication by the Hutts by the time of the Cold War.

Crushers were built to pound and bash: While their legs were short and stocky, their upper body and arms were immense and helped propel their meaty fists in combat. They became savage opponents in battle, slapping, stomping, and bashing foes and even causing minor groundquakes. Crushers varied in size from slightly taller than an adult Human to truly gargantuan proportions. While the Hutts often employed beast masters to manage crushers in captivity, the species was capable of surviving in the wild by foraging.

Kintan crushers roamed the grounds of both the palace of Fa'athra the Hutt and that of Karagga the Hutt on the planet Nal Hutta. Among these, Foreman Crusher was the most immense and formidable, guarding the entrance to Karagga's palace until being defeated by a group of invaders. Kintan crushers also lived beyond the borders of Hutt Space during the Cold War and its aftermath, with one specimen roaming the Clabburn Tundra of the ice planet Hoth. (Read more…)

In the year 3643 BBY, Duke Brant Organa contacted Liagri about a failed attempt to repair a set of sensor arrays that had been damaged by soldiers of the rival House of Thul. Liagri, however, informed Organa that no Republic troops were available to help immediately. A Republic-aligned individual then approached Liagri and offered to repair the sensors, which the individual successfully did. (Read more…)
