Armed Robbery in a Hutt Palace

September 25, 2012

Reporters of Galactic News Network interviewed Ashlla and his suit after a holdup in their dwelling.

Ashlla the Hutt

Tatooine: A man attacked the Hutt Ashlla palace in Mos Eshley to take possession of his Energy Droid. Covered with a hood and armed with a blue lightsaber, he pushed the doid and forced the Hutt to give him the key to the droid room after having wounded one of the armed slave interposing. When leaving with his spoil, the man threw his saber to the Hutt’s face and gashed his eye.

Accordng to Ashlla and his protocol droid, the attacker was clearly a Jedi and is presumed working for the Republic. He’s now wanted by the clan and the Hutt Security now bar the Jedi from approaching the palace.

    “Accordng to Ashlla and his protocol droid, the attacker was clearly a Jedi and is presumed working for the Republic.”

    Based on what evidence? According to this article he seemed he was just a force user who carried a blue lightsaber. Blue crystals are found in many crystal caves and give no evidence that the person is working for the Republic. Perhaps Ashlla has details which were not given in this article.

    Is interesting how something very similar happened with me, 6 months ago i think.

    Who would have the motivation to make it look like the Jedi and Republic attacked Ashlla? Sounds like the work of Kulith Laan and his minions. Why, you ask? It is no secret that Laan has been attempting to forge an alliance with the Hutts. One of Laan’s many enemies is the Republic. To make it look as if the Republic attacked a Hutt would only serve to further strengthen the bond between Laan and that which he courts.

    The Jedi committing an armed robbery? Highly unlikely. Perhaps the Galactic Empire should rethink its strategies in reference to framing another organization.

    “…the attacker was clearly a Jedi and is presumed working for the Republic.”

    The only thing that is “clear” about this situation is the fact that Ashlla is a bit naive and presumptive. Or maybe this Hutt is already a pawn of the Galactic Empire? The Hutt’s findings on this robbery seem a bit scripted. The galaxy is not impressed.

      This is a Hutt controlling Mos Espa….not exactly prime real estate for Siit Imperial plans, regardless of DOR’s little base in Espa a while back. That was DOR and DOR aren’t exactly Siit with intelligence are they? I mean, they think they really controlled the fate of Coruscant when we gave it to em? Does that sound like they have brains to begin with?

      Likely this is some weird ass trick to get some attention to that ball of dust and the petty osik that goes on there.

      Really, I think Jetii have better uses of their time then bothering some bloated puss bag on that dust ball.

    Correction Hutt controlling Mos Eisley…same dust ball, different osik’la town’s name.

    It would be an elementary mistake to automatically assume that ownership of a blue lightsaber means the attacker is a Jedi.

    Considering how far the Jedi have fallen, this could be just a desperate case of the poor stealing from the rich.

    But really, I mean come on. Mugging a Hutt is like delousing a Bantha. Whether you do it or not, they’re still butt-ugly and garner little in the way of sympathy.

    (Also, the long-term effects of the activities are completely negligible.)
