|Chronological and political information|
- "I assure you, my intentions are entirely honorable—as honorable as a Hutt can manage—"
Gorga Desilijic Aarrpo was the nephew of Jabba Desilijic Tiure, and a Hutt crime lord of the Desilijic kajidic, Eventually, after his uncle's death, Gorga took over his criminal empire and expanded it farther than even Jabba himself ever did.
Gorga was born at an unknown date to an unknown sibling of Jabba the Hutt. At some point in his life, Gorga became the Head of his own Kajidic and earned a position on the Hutt Grand Council alongside his Uncle. Despite being Jabba's nephew, Gorga's voice was given equal measure on matters brought before the Council though it was not as weighty as Jabba's.
Time in the Clone WarsEdit
During the Clone Wars, the Hutt Grand Council hired Cad Bane to hunt for Ziro the Hutt, due to his possession of potentially damaging information about Hutt activities. At that time, the council consisted of Jabba Desilijic Tiure, Gorga Desilijic Aarrpo, Arok, Oruba, and Marlo.
Several months later, Gorga traveled to the planet Zygerria to browse its slave markets. While he was inspecting the captured slaves, Gorga shoved a nearby Zygerrian guard and voiced his disappointment in the selection of slaves completely unaware the guard was in reality Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi who was undercover to find kidnapped Togruta colonists.
A short time later, Gorga visited the Bilbousa Bazaar along with two female Twi'lek slaves who hung onto the Hutt's arms. As he made his way down the main street, Gorga smirked as he saw several of the locals being harassed by the Nikto guards the Hutts employed. Once again, Gorga passed by a disguised Obi-Wan Kenobi, this time pretending to be the wanted bounty hunter Rako Hardeen.
A year later, Darth Maul, Savage Opress, and Pre Vizsla of the Death Watch came to the Council's chambers in a Hutt Palace to form an alliance with the elder Hutts. Maul asked for Hutt territories and everything in it's borders, in exchange for the Hutts' lives. They merely laughed, and Jabba sent bounty hunters after them. While Gorga and Jabba were seen as holograms, the other Hutts, except for Oruba, escaped. Gorga was later seen with Jabba at his uncle's palace, when Maul and company launched an attack on Jabba's palace. Gorga watched as his uncle was forced to join the Collective.
Gizman and Spiker, former Swoop riders for Jabba, at some point dropped Jabba's funeral urn on him, believing him to be the cause of the security tape with Jabba's treasure exploding, destroying the treasure and nearly killing both of them. Gorga was horrified and angry that his late uncle's ashes had been lost.
Hiring Boba FettEdit
While on Tatooine, a Hutt named Anachro caught Gorga's eye. Gorga found her to be beautiful. Unfortunately for him, Anachro was the daughter of Orko the H'uun, an enemy of his. Deciding that a gift might placate Orko, Gorga hired Boba Fett to kill Bar-Kooda, a pirate kingpin that had been harassing Orko's freighters. Fett succeeded, and Gorga, Anachro, and Orko celebrated Gorga and Anachro's impending nuptials by eating Bar-Kooda's corpse.
While on his honeymoon, slavers kidnapped Anachro on Skeebo, causing Gorga to hire Fett to get her back. Orko accused Gorga of staging the event, and the two Hutts might have come to blows, had Fett not arrived with Anachro. Gorga and Orko made a public reconciliation. However, Gorga soon found his father-in-law insufferable.
He hired Fett to assassinate Orko, but asked him to make it look accidental, so that Anachro's suspicions were not aroused. However, when he learned that Anachro was pregnant, he ordered the assassination called off. Unfortunately, Ry-Kooda, Bar-Kooda's brother, had murdered Orko in a particularly brutal fashion. Anachro accused Gorga of the murder, and in grief went back to her father's. Ry-Kooda attacked Anachro's transport, but Gorga stopped him, and Boba Fett ultimately killed Ry-Kooda. The turmoil of the event caused Anachro to give birth.
Profitable business venturesEdit
Boba Fett's charges put Gorga in debt for two years, but his shrewd business skills paid off. Gorga managed to attain quite a fortune, including casinos, restaurants, and "cargo haulers". His family life was also prosperous and happy. Gorga sold precious ulikuo gemstones from Kip on the black market with a silent partner. He thought that his wife didn't know about this, but she of course did, being more keen and ambitious than she seemed. Gorga also had a palace on Tatooine very similar to his late uncle's which may also be a sign of him slithering in Jabba's footsteps.
Personality and traitsEdit
Gorga was a money watching and scheming Hutt of the Hutt Council. Gorga was fully aware of the scheming nature that the Hutts took deep pride in. Gorga ably accounted for skimming along with outright theft while ensuring the criminal enterprise remained able to thrive. Gorga regularly met with his fellow Hutt councilors in the halls of the Hutt Council on the Hutt homeworld of Nal Hutta, where he stood by closely to his uncle, Jabba.
During the Clone Wars, Gorga wore an unique headset that was a combination of a speaker and monocle.The monocle was placed over his right eye and was both it and the speaker where hinged so they could be rotated. The monocle's lens would often give Gora's eye a distorted look.
