A loathsome slug of a gangster, Jabba the Hutt was the preeminent kingpin of crime in the Outer Rim Territories. Basing his operations out of Tatooine, the Hutt had his pudgy fingers in a number of criminal activities -- slavery, gunrunning, spice-smuggling, extortion and more.
A hefty Hutt, Jabba resembled a worm-like slug, with a legless, tapered body coated in slime. Jabba surrounded himself with some of the worst thugs in the galaxy, ensuring his protection with a screen of henchmen and hired guns. He lived in a palace out in the Tatooine deserts.
