- "I trust Ka'Pa exactly as far as I can throw him. And I can't."
- ―Kyle Katarn
During the waning days of the Old Republic, Ka'Pa owned a Twi'lek dancing girl named B'inka Fibuna who escaped his clutches, earning a live bounty on her head, which was eventually claimed by Jango Fett.
Ka'Pa was involved in several criminal activities such as slavery, spice trading, and arms dealing. After the death of Jabba the Hutt, Ka'Pa established a business relationship with the New Republic–one of the only Hutts to do so.
New Republic entanglementsEdit
Ka'Pa was offered amnesty by the New Republic in exchange for supplying them with resources. Mara Jade was sent to negotiate; however, after Jabba's death by Luke Skywalker and company, Ka'Pa mistrusted the New Jedi Order.
Mara had to break into his palace and "negotiate" by force. Ka'Pa asked her to bring him back Takara's Global Communications Transponder device in order to help the Republic. After Mara succeeded her mission and gave the GCT to Ka'Pa, the Hutt offered the supplies as a gift, in return for Mara's silence: GCT was illegal, and Mara, being an honest Jedi, would report it to Mon Mothma.
- "Everyone in the galaxy uses that same image of Jabba, and we're sick of it."
- ―Riccix editors
Ka'Pa was somewhat of a celebrity, because Riccix's Revised Basic Holodictionary featured an image of him in the entry on Hutts. The image was taken by the famous holographer, Bovit Leebo, who was soon killed by Ka'Pa. When Leebo died, the image fell into public domain, and was quickly snatched up by the editors at Riccix.
