Marlo was born on the Hutt homeworld of Nal Hutta into the militaristic Hutt kajidic, Qunaalac. Later in life, Marlo became the lorda of the Qunaalac clan, which earned him a position on the Hutt Ruling Council.[4]

Around 21 BBY,[5] he discussed the plans to release Ziro from Republic custody with other Hutt council members including Jabba Desilijic Tiure, Gorga Desilijic Aarrpo, Oruba, and Arok, because Ziro had potentially damaging information about Hutt activities.[1]

When Ziro was brought before the Council, Marlo spoke to the Huttese Vigo asking if he realized that his release was a result of the holodiary he possessed.[3] Later, the Council was entertained by Sy Snootles' Da Hutta Moda number. Later on, the Jedi appeared before the Council telling them that Ziro had escaped.[3]

Sometime later, Marlo was seen browsing through the slave selection on Zygerria when a dispute had erupted between a slave, her master, and a Zygerrian.[6] Marlo later attended the slave auctions.[6]

A year later, Darth Maul, Savage Opress, and Pre Vizsla came to the Hutt Grand Council chambers and demanded that the Hutt families join them, or die. The council refused and summoned their bounty hunters.[7] During the skirmish, Dengar was thrown into Marlo, making the large Hutt grunt in anger. After Maul and his companions fled from the chamber, Marlo and the other Hutts escaped, but left Oruba behind, leading to his death.[7]

Personality and traitsEdit

Like most Hutts, Marlo did not have hair. He actually wore a Sha'rellian toop, a small creature that lived on his head, giving him the appearance of having hair. He also had markings on his upper lips that gave the appearance of a thin mustache.
