A "Hutt's cry" was a slang term used during the time of the Galactic Republic to describe the sound made when a batch of worm-like k'lor'slugs hatched from their eggs. The term originated from an incident that occurred[1] around the year 3743 BBY,[2] when a hunter named Riegenn Hetuu was hired by a Hutt to capture a live k'lor'slug queen. Hetuu had not taken the creature's high reproductive rate into account, and a hoard of nearly four hundred k'lor'slugs hatched in his ship's cargo bay by the time he arrived on the planet Hutta. When he opened the cargo bay to show his client his prize, the released k'lor'slugs devoured both Hetuu and his Hutt client. The term was still used[1] around the year 3643 BBY.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The term "Hutt's cry" was first mentioned in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a 2011 MMORPG produced by BioWare. The term was mentioned in the k'lorslug codex entry, which could be found by players who killed the k'lor'slug broodwatcher in the tomb of the Sith Lord Ajunta Pall on the planet Korriban.[1]

Since the Treaty of Coruscant was signed in 3653 BBY according to The Old Republic: Deceived, this places the events of the game at approximately 3643 BBY to 3641 BBY. This article uses the date of 3643 BBY as an approximate date, which would place the Hetuu's death around 3743 BBY, but the actual date could be different.
