The Hellhoop was a mysterious area of space in the Expansion Region. Ringed by an asteroid belt, the Hellhoop was said to have an evil reputation, as many ships that entered the area disappeared and were never seen again. In truth, the ships were captured by a group called the Five. When Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Leia Organa were captured by the Five, they were able to free the captive Wutzek, who rampaged through the Five's base killing them all except for Chokla. Wutzek then destroyed the entire Hellhoop, allowing the other captives to escape.
