The Hutts were a species of rotund gastropods with stubby arms, wide cavernous mouths and huge eyes, who controlled a large space empire in Hutt Space. The species was said to originally hail from the planet Varl but no planet by that name appears on any Imperial star charts. Their current homeworld is Nal Hutta.
Physiology and Culture
Full-grown adult Hutts were obese creatures, boasting a total body-weight of as much as a metric ton. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they were often semi-sedentiary, spending their days lounging lazily, and travelling on repulsorlift sleds or palanquins borne by teams of slaves. Most of their bulk rested in their bulging belly and thick, slug-like tail, adding to the impression of bloated corruption.
In fact, a Hutt's thick, fatty hide hid a powerful musculature, making them easily capable of besting Gamorreans in hand-to-hand combat, and they could move with surprising speed on the single muscular "foot" formed by the base of their tail and belly.
The Hutt Empire was powerful in its own right, comprising a large area of space on the Outer Rim, and Huttese, the native language of the Hutts, was widely spoken by subjugated races. But many ambitious Hutts moved to worlds outside Hutt Space to become overlords in organized crime within the Old Republic, Galactic Empire and New Republic. All Hutts had a given name, which was supported by their clan name and surname (as in Jabba Desilijic Tiure and Borga Besadii Diori).
Role in LotJ
Hutts are vicious megalomaniacs who who consider their kind beyond common morality. They have a talent for manipulation and enjoy accumulating power. They gravitate toward lives of crime though some operate as diplomats or spies.
Hutt can speak Galactic Basic but refuse to demean themselves by speaking it.
