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 scenes[edit | edit source]

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 references[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 SWTOR mini.png STAR WARS: The Old Republic - Question ! :) - Page 3 on The Old Republic's official website (backup link) places Star Wars: The Old Republic about ten to twelve years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2 takes place ten years after the treaty, one week after the mission to Nar Shaddaa, and around the time of the SpecForce Incident. Since the mission and the incident are respectively part of Act I of the Jedi Knight and Republic Trooper's storylines, and the Trooper's Act I occurs concurrent to Act I of the Smuggler storyline, the general events of Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. The Prologue for each class immediately precedes Act I, and Act III for all classes begins with the start of the Galactic War, which Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia places around 3640 BBY. Assuming that in-universe chronology of the Star Wars: The Old Republic events roughly aligns with the release of story content in real-life as with SWTOR mini.png Forums: Dear Story Team, What Year Are We Currently In? on The Old Republic's official website (backup link), the Act III Epilogue must take place near the end of 3640 BBY since it was the chronologically latest story of the The Old Republic base game, which was released toward the end of 2011. Therefore, assuming that The Old Republic takes place over the course of three years per the former of the two aforementioned swtor.com posts, Act I takes place near the end of 3643 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.
