Riegenn Hetuu was a male hunter who was active over a century before the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire.[2] Around 3743 BBY,[1] Hetuu was hired by a Hutt to acquire a live k'lor'slug queen for the Hutt's annual gladiatorial tournament on the planet Nal Hutta. Hetuu was successful in acquiring the queen, but failed to take into account the creature's ability to reproduce—when he opened the cargo bay of his starship, around four hundred k'lor'slugs poured out and ate both Hetuu and his Hutt client. The incident inspired the term "a Hutt's cry," which referred to the sound made by a batch of k'lor'slugs, and Hetuu was still viewed as a notorious hunter a century after his death.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Riegenn Hetuu was first mentioned in the Codex entry for k'lor'slugs in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare in 2011; the entry did not specify his species.[2]


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 Using comments and information from The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2, The Old Republic: Annihilation, and SWInsider "The Last Battle of Colonel Jace Malcom"—Star Wars Insider 137, it is possible to place the events of the Prologue and Act I for the Jedi Knight, Smuggler, and Trooper classes in Star Wars: The Old Republic in 3643 BBY, the general events of Act II in 3642 BBY, and the events of Act III for all classes in 3641 BBY. This article uses the date of 3643 BBY as an approximate date, which would place Hetuu's death around 3743 BBY, but the actual date could be different.
