The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on canonical information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

«Bloodshed is bad for business. This can be dealt with later. Sleep lightly, bounty hunter.»
―The Hutt brother, to Boba Fett[1]

A Hutt male, alongside his twin sister, attempted to claim Jabba Desilijic Tiure's criminal empire after the death of Bib Fortuna. However, Boba Fett—the new Daimyo of Mos Espa—claimed Jabba's territory for his own empire, putting him in conflict with the Hutt siblings from Nal Hutta.

Biography[]

"The Twins have laid claim to their late cousin's bequest."
"The Twins are preoccupied with the debauchery of Hutta to bother with any ambitions on Tatooine."
―Garsa Fwip and Boba Fett[1]

The Hutt brother and his twin sister were cousins of the late Jabba Desilijic Tiure.

The Hutt male was a cousin of Jabba Desilijic Tiure, the crime lord who controlled the city of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine until his demise[1] in 4 ABY.[2] The Hutt and his twin sister were collectively known as "the Twins;" they originally resided on Nal Hutta[1]—the homeworld of the Hutt species[3]—prior to their move to Tatooine[1] around 9 ABY.[4] Their claim over Jabba's territory conflicted with the agenda of Boba Fett, the self-proclaimed Daimyo of Mos Espa, who sought to build his own criminal empire after killing Bib Fortuna.[1]

Accompanied by their servants and the Wookiee gladiator Krrsantan, the Twins met with Fett and Fennec Shand outside of Garsa Fwip's cantina, the Sanctuary, and publicly declared their intention to take control of Mos Espa. Fett rejected the assertion that the Twins were the legitimate inheritors of Jabba's legacy, and presented himself as the rightful crime lord on Tatooine. While the Hutt sister desired to kill the former bounty hunter immediately, the Hutt brother decided to settle the dispute with Fett at a later point in time.[1]

Personality and traits[]

«You've upset my sister. I'm more patient than she is.»
―The Hutt brother, to Boba Fett[1]

The Hutt brother traveled in comfort on a litter carried by servants.

Contrary to the opinion of Boba Fett, who believed that the Twins were too distracted by a life of "debauchery" on Nal Hutta to pursue their ambitions on Tatooine, the Hutt brother journeyed to the remote desert world alongside his sister with the intention of claiming the dominion of their late cousin, Jabba Desilijic Tiure. Whereas Fett had chosen to eschew the outward signs of power as a crime lord, the Hutt brother and his sister traveled in comfort, riding together on a double-wide litter supported by servants and using drums to announce their arrival to the population of Mos Espa. In addition to the litter, the Hutt brother used a rodent to wipe sweat off of his face.[1]

The Hutt brother believed himself and his sister to be the true beneficiaries of their cousin's estate. He refuted Fett's claim that Mos Espa was his territory by presenting a document to confirm Jabba's authority over the city. Possessing more patience than his sister, who wanted to kill Fett after he had upset her, the brother decided to settle their disagreement at a later date, observing that bloodshed was "bad for business."[1]

The brother twin was a large Hutt with orange eyes, green and tan skin, and a facial tattoo. He spoke Huttese—the language of the Hutts—and understood Galactic Basic Standard.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

"It was pretty much those two guys, without the voiceover, of course. The voiceover came from my wonderful stand-in, a guy called Jimmy. […] He could do all the voices while we were acting."
―Temuera Morrison, speaking about the Twins' on-set presence[src]

The Hutt brother first appeared in the episode "Chapter 2: The Tribes of Tatooine" of the Disney+ series The Book of Boba Fett[1] on January 5, 2022.[5] According to the Simplified and Traditional Chinese subtitles of the episode on Disney+, the female Hutt is the male Hutt's younger sister (妹妹, mèimei). The line is spoken in Huttese, regardless of the language a viewer chooses for audio.[6]

According to Ming-Na Wen, cardboard cutouts were used on set to represent the Hutts that would eventually be realized through computer-generated imagery. JJ Dashnaw, the body double of Temuera Morrison, provided dialogue for the Twins during filming.[7]

  4. The attack on Jabba's Palace, depicted in "Chapter 16: The Rescue," is dated to be around nine years after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which include the Battle of Yavin, by "Jabba the Hutt and Other Bounty Hunters and Criminals". As the present-time events of The Book of Boba Fett occur shortly after the attack, The Book of Boba Fett must take place around 9 ABY. Additionally, SWInsider.png "A Certain Point of View" – Star Wars Insider 211 states that the Assassination attempt on Boba Fett and Boba Fett's hiring of Krrsantan, which appear in "Chapter 3: The Streets of Mos Espa" and "Chapter 4: The Gathering Storm" respectively, both take place nine years after A New Hope, which means at least two episodes take place exactly in 9 ABY.
