Settling of scores at the Hutt night

December 29, 2011

Reporter Daana Kira along with local correspondents covered the most recent Hutt Night, which drew a large cloud and several arguments.

Abyssus taking Serenity into custody.

Nar Shaddaa: This particular Hutt Night was framed by the arrest of Jedi Serenity, who the Hutts wanted taken into custody for her part fighting for the resistance movement on Uvena Prime. She was to be turned over to Admiral Abyssus. She appeared to have thought she was in the company of friends, especially Shade who heads Hutt Security. Shade was reluctant to hand her over, however her arrest began the public audience which was overseen by the Hutts Darmutta, Shaka, Belutric, and Jengaz. Tanya, Darmutta’s majordomo hosted and translated for the night.

Large crowd at Hutt night.

Jarell Xaaris leader of the Dha’oya’karir mandalorian clan was the first guest to come before the Hutts. He wished to convey his apologies for having to change sides during the Uvena Prime Conflict on orders from the Mandalore who had given the command for all mandalorians to help the resistance movement against the Revenant Armada and the Hutts. The Hutts seemed to understand, however told him not to align with any further enemies of the Hutts and that they would speak directly to the Mandalore to smooth relations. Abyssus deplored that on his contact with the Mandalore that he forbad any mandalorians to work for the Hutts ever again.

Jengiz the Hutt, one of the council members overseeing the audience.

Abyssus was next up to speak. He told the Hutts that Tor’dok the pirate was not dead but was instead under contract to the Revenant to strike against the Jedi and their allies, for crimes against the Hutts and their part in the Uvena Prime Conflict. He explained that the pirates had been succeeding in their mission striking deadly blows against the Republic world of Dantooine. The damage was not yet known, though Abyssus said intelligent reports indicated the Jedi and Republic forces had taken massive losses, a figure in dispute by Zack Rodchester, an officer for the Republic who was also present. The Hutts declared that they would stay neutral in the matter and would provide medical care for any civilians hurt at a price, though allowed Abyssus to carry on his operations.

Shaka the Hutt then made several announcements. First, she informed the council that the treaty was formally signed with Zonama Sekot and that the system was experience a rare snowfall and invited others to visit. Next the Hutt made it known that medical personnel are in dire need in Mos Entha probably because of the outbreak of a virus and  the attacks by the Sand People.

Arrest out in the streets after Hutt Night.

Hutt night ended with another arrest, that of a Zabrak woman, Nharga Zinn who was wanted for a series of bombings and assassination attempts on Tython. Zack Rodchester, captain in the Republic Fleet, had spotted her and made the arrest after asking for permission from the Hutt Council. A fight then ensued that spilled over into the streets after the Zabrak had produced a thermal detonator, but she was finally subdued and taken into custody.

    It’s a sad turn of events when thing must come to something like this. Still, the fact remains. Some jedi orders have taken actions against the hutts. Those actions can not go un-adressed. For those out there who have no taken such actions, they are fine. It is insanity to expect the theft of an entire world to fade into history. Perhaps when the jedi learn they are not above the law things can be sorted more peacefully.

        Zach they are people in all groups that are guilty of such things. You know me and my people have never looked down on you troopers. We always appreciate soldiers and we are both fighting the same fight.

    the hutts have no law. the hutts are not lawmen, they’re criminals. as are all in their employment.

      Very interesting.Because Revenants and…their allies lost the war on Uvena, now after battle are arresting their former ennemies on the field to punish them. I am pretty sure if a person wanted by the hutts and their friends took asylum on Coruscant, will be send agents of hutts to recover him.

        well good luck to them getting Mando’ade. especially with their lapdog, Skole, looking like he’s been neutered.

      Technically this is correct. The Hutts are criminals. And those who they employ are either criminals or mercenaries. But. Only in Republican Space are they criminals. Also. Uvena Prime is not in Republican Space (quite far from it). The New Republic’s laws did not and do not apply to Uvena Prime or non-Republican planets. Darth Krayt took control of Uvena Prime and it was under control of the Sith Empire until recently when Hutt Space took ownership of it. I’m unsure if it was sold, or given as a gift. But it was legally acquired. The Revenant Armada was then charged with monitoring, policing, and possibly governing the planet (unsure about the last one). Hutts made money off of the planet’s resources and slave force (which technically is still legal in Hutt Space and Hutt controlled systems) while the Revvies were paid to do monitor and police. Rumors of senseless murders, slavery, and genocide spread when the GLA began to survey the planet and bring the media’s attention to it. As the GLA began their freedom fighting, these conditions only worsened. Entire villages and cities were razed in the battles. Luckily the main conflicts are over. But now the Revenant Armada threatens to scar the system’s sun, or raze the planet. It makes you wonder. If a crippled system is the price of freedom, was all this fighting really worth it? If the GLA were to simply purchase the system or perform negotiations, a lot less genocide would’ve taken place. I don’t believe the Revvies were in the right. But neither was the GLA. In this case, the ends both do and don’t justify the means. But I’m ranting. The point is. Criminal depends on your perspective. In my opinion, while the Hutts may be criminals in the Republic, technically the GLA and Republic invaded a planet they owned and proceeded to act criminally, causing chaos, death, and destruction. Perhaps a simpler solution would’ve been to just negotiated with the Hutts and convinced them to cease to employ the Revenant Armada in the system, using a neutral force. Or a police force consisting of locals. As well as to have placed laws against murder and genocide. Maybe request the Revvies’ performances be inspected to make sure they’re not harming resources or locals?

    The Armada paying pirates to do their dirty work, all because they got their shebs handed to them is a very low move indeed. Seems to me that Abyssus is hiding behind the Hutts, well Mr Defeated Admiral, keep hiding, it seems to suit you better then pretending to be a big bad Admiral.

      The win / loss record of the Grand Admiral has never been in question, and is sufficient to maintain the Hutt’s support. The people of Coruscant and the Tetan Empire can attest to that. And if they have forgotten history will indeed repeat itself.

      I too found it interesting the number of Jedi eager to continue the war rather than make the slightest attempt at peace.

      Technically these pirates would be privateers. Also, Revvies are well known for hiring mercenaries and getting aid from allies. Any intelligent military force would do the same. During the first Galactic Civil War, a large portion of the rebel alliance was made up of smugglers, pirates, and privateers. It’s not uncommon for us to take sides if paid well, or our freedom is on the line. It’s also ironic that this comes from an Alor’ad. You should understand better than most that there’s nothing wrong with hiring mercenaries. The Mandalorians have a very long history of bounty hunting and mercenary work, and the majority of mercenaries in the galaxy are Mandalorians. And if I recall correctly, Abyssus isn’t hiding and he isn’t known for hiding. It’s rather uncommon for such a high ranking figure to constantly be found on the front lines. If you find him a coward, you should simply get off of the Holonet and look for him there.

        Hmm yes,,,the first glatic civil war I belive there was a group known as renegade squadron that did secret specops work for the rebels and were created by han solo and consisted of priates scoundrels and criminals. All who had a beef with palaptine’s empire. And it was beacuse Genral solo wanted a group of sokuders who werent navie and idealistic farmboys.

        “The Mandalorians have a very long history of bounty hunting and mercenary work, and the majority of mercenaries in the galaxy are Mandalorians.” At this point you are right. The Mand’alor Jaster Mereel established in SUPERCOMMANDO CODEX new guideline for mandalorian behavior,in which he asserted that the mandalorians who wished to fight would simply be highly-paid soldiers, and should conduct themselves as honorable mercenaries.

    For clarification, Revenant forces were actually taking ground back on Uvena, and winning in the space conflict.. in fact we had more victories after the mandalorians rallied to the resistance side.. and the GLA credit their victory to the sacrifice of a Jedi..not mandalorians. Keep running your mouths though, the Galaxy at large knows that is all many mandos can do. The Revenant has a long history of hiring out help…and many mandos are often that hired help… to mock the usage of such forces is rather amusing coming from an Alor of a people who sell their strong arms for credits on the regular. Mockery is fleeting however, and redundant.. I do cherish the moral decay of those who call me, the v
    illian, when they gloat over war like a game they won in the school yard.. so few speak of their fallen heros who died to actually bring defeat to the Hutt and Revenant forces.. and the more such pride is fed, the more the defeat becomes sweet to us… Uvena Prime will remember the Revenant, and the people of that world are not running their mouths in the aftermath.

      mayhaps not…but they’re sure as hell not going to revere you as a hero, Abyssus, they’ll revile you as just another petty criminal that just happened to have bigger toys.
