Harc Seff was a Ishi Tib who was present in the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure's palace on the planet Tatooine in 4 ABY. Seff witnessed a performance by the Max Rebo Band and applauded when they finished their song. The Ishi Tib was then present when Princess Leia Organa arrived disguised as the bounty hunter Boushh looking to claim the bounty on the Wookiee Chewbacca.


Harc Seff applauded the Max Rebo Band at Jabba's palace.

The Ishi Tib Harc Seff[1] spent time in the palace[2] of the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure[3] on the planet Tatooine[2] in the year 4 ABY.[4] While in the palace, Seff viewed a performance of the song[2] "Jedi Rocks" by the Max Rebo Band[3] in the Hutt's courtroom and applauded when the band finished. Jabba then called for a repeat of the song, but during the second performance the Hutt dropped the slave Oola into the pit containing his pet rancor[2] Pateesa[5] underneath the throne room.[2]

After the performance Princess Leia Organa arrived in the throne room disguised as the bounty hunter Boushh in order to claim the bounty on the Wookiee Chewbacca. While Jabba and Organa haggled over the price of the bounty, Seff stood in front of the bounty hunter Boba Fett and the dancers Rystáll Sant and Lyn Me. Organa then shocked those present in the courtroom by activating a thermal detonator in order to threaten Jabba into paying more. The ploy amused Jabba and he agreed to pay more, satisfying Organa and causing her to de-activate the detonator. Organa and her allies later killed Jabba above the Pit of Carkoon.[2]
