Jilrua was a desert planet that orbited a blue giant star within the galaxy's Hutt Space region. Jilrua was the homeworld of the Jilruan species, which was conquered by members of the Hutt species. The Jilruans subsequently were put to use by their new masters as attendants, retainers, and gladiators. The territory surrounding Jilrua was temporarily abandoned by the Hutts approximately four millennia before the Battle of Yavin, although eventually the Hutts would reclaim that area of space.
Members of Jilrua's native Jilruan species were found in the service of members of the Hutt species as early as the year 25,100 BBY, when the former served as flecheteers in the armies of the latter during the Second Battle of Vontor between the forces of the Hutts and the Tionese warlord Xim. The territory surrounding Jilrua was considered well-explored by the year 8,000 BBY and was under the control of the Hutts as early as 5,000 BBY. By 3,996 BBY, however, the borders of the Hutt Space had receded Rimward, and the area of space containing Jilrua was no longer under Hutt control. Thirty years later, Jilrua's immediate vicinity had been incorporated in the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Revan's Empire. By 1,000 BBY, the Hutts had regained their former territorial holdings, including the territory surrounding the desert planet.
Jilrua was the homeworld of the Jilruans—a war-like sentient species that was conquered by members of the Hutt species and used as attendants, retainers, and gladiators by several of the Hutt clans, warlords of the Yahk-Tosh species, and members of the t'landa Til species. Jilrua was rarely visited by outsiders. The local population average of the region of space containing Jilrua around the year 25 ABY was less than one million.
