Ziro the Hutt

Scheming Hutt Gangster

Details

Biography

Jabba the Hutt's Uncle Ziro conspired with Count Dooku to kidnap Jabba's son Rotta, reasoning that when the Jedi sent to retrieve Rotta died, the Republic would be forced to apprehend Jabba, leading to Ziro gaining control of their clan.

When the conspiracy unraveled, Ziro was imprisoned on Coruscant. Cad Bane freed him and turned him over to the Hutt Council, who feared that Ziro might tell the Republic of their many dirty dealings. Ziro escaped the Hutts, but could not outrun his past.

Jabba the Hutt

Jabba the Hutt

Ziro represented the Hutt business interests on Coruscant, far from crime lord Jabba's watchful eye. Ziro preferred the life of plush comfort on the capital than having to endure the hardships of Hutt Space. Jabba never trusted Ziro, but also did not think his flamboyant great uncle capable of such treachery that he would dispose of kin in his bid to secure power.
