- ―Ajuur to Revan[src]
Ajuur was a Hutt and found work as a bookmaker for the Exchange, a criminal syndicate, in the Upper City Cantina of the planet Taris. He also owned a combat arena where duels to the death were broadcast as a spectator sport.
In 3956 BBY, the Sith Empire conquered Taris from the Galactic Republic and outlawed death matches, forcing Ajuur to make battles non-lethal. Nevertheless, the sport remained popular, with gladiators such as Ice, Gerlon Two-Fingers, Marl, Twitch, and Deadeye Duncan rising to fame.
Ajuur, however, was eager to organize illegal duels for the most famed and proficient of warriors. An example was when he offered Revan to have a death match against Bendak Starkiller, an offer that Revan refused.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ajuur first appeared as a non-player character in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, a 2003 video game produced by BioWare. Inside the game, the player, Revan, can choose to fight in his arena. However, the nature of the encounter is such that it does not progress any plot, nor does it change the player's alignment. Therefore, it is undetermined whether Revan ever interacted with him and, if so, what form that interaction took.
If the player defeats all other duelists in the ring, Ajuur offers to set up a death match with Starkiller in a non-canonical dark side outcome. Upon successfully defeating Starkiller, Ajuur gives the player their pay along with Bendak's blaster. Ajuur can also be persuaded or threatened to increase the reward. Additionally, there is a bug in the game that can result in him giving the player Bendak's blaster twice.
His voicework was provided by Neil Kaplan[source?]. Unlike most non-Basic speaking characters in the game, he would speak his name if it was in the subtitles. He would also say Bendak Starkiller's name under similar circumstances. He shares this trait with Gluupor and Motta.
