- "Remember the official banquet for the Hewett senators? You stopped me before I took a bite of Konkeel pie."
- ―Qui-Gon Jinn, to Adi Gallia
The Hewett were a non-humanoid, sentient species from the planet Hewett. In 34 BBY, an official banquet was held for Hewett senators, at which Konkeel pie was served on the menu. The pie was toxic to humanoids, and the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn almost ate some before his contemporary Adi Gallia stopped him.
Biology and appearanceEdit
- "Konkeel pie is highly toxic to humanoids. The Hewett senators apologized and removed it from their menu."
- ―Adi Gallia
The Hewett were native to the planet Hewett in a Mid Rim sector of the same name. In 34 BBY, an official banquet was held for Hewett senators, which the Jedi Masters Qui-Gon Jinn and Adi Gallia attended. The menu included the dessert Konkeel pie, and Jinn almost ate some of the food before Gallia stopped him, pointing out the dangers. The toxicity of the pie was brought to the attention of the Hewett senators, who then arranged for the item to be removed from the menu and apologized to the Jedi. The next year, Jinn related the incident to his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, insisting that Gallia had saved his life.
Between 12 ABY and 13 ABY, the Hewett's homeworld was contested between the New Republic and the Galactic Empire, as part of the Orinda campaign. The Empire won the engagement, utilizing the 181st Imperial Fighter Wing and a contingent of Star Destroyers.
Behind the scenesEdit
