The Candle was a prototype warhead that belonged to Jabba Desilijic Tiure the Hutt. It was stolen by a group of Sand Splitter pirates along with a precious bell and a valuable book.

One, or more, of Jabba's lackeys was sent to the Sand Splitter hideout by Ree-Yees to retrieve the items. The mission was a complete success, and upon their return, Ree-Yees named the warhead "The Candle" which he thought was a fitting name for that particular warhead.
