A member of the Hutt species who was considered to be eccentric hired the notorious hunter Riegenn Hetuu around 3743 BBY to locate a live k'lor'slug queen, a creature native to the planet Korriban. A hermaphrodite like the rest of the Hutt species, Hetuu's client held a gladiatorial tournament annually on the planet Nal Hutta, and the Hutt intended for the queen to be the highlight of the tournament. However, when Hetuu arrived to deliver the creature, the Hutt and Hetuu were both killed when the hunter opened his cargo bay: around four hundred k'lor'slugs which the queen had spawned poured out and ate them both. The incident inspired the term "a Hutt's cry," a reference to the sound made by a swarm of k'lor'slugs.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Hutt was first mentioned in the Codex entry for k'lor'slugs in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare in 2011, but the entry did not specify the Hutt's name or which gender the Hutt's personality was.

Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 Using comments and information from The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2, The Last Battle of Colonel Jace Malcom, and The Old Republic: Annihilation, it is possible to place the events of the Prologue and Act I for the Jedi Knight, Smuggler, and Trooper classes in Star Wars: The Old Republic in 3643 BBY, the general events of Act II in 3642 BBY, and the events of Act III for all classes in 3641 BBY. This article uses the date of 3,643 BBY as an approximate date, which would place the Hutt's death around 3743 BBY, but the actual date could be different.
