Hut Council


The Hutt Council, also known as the Clans of the Ancients, the Hutt Grand Council, and the Council of Elders, is an alliance of powerful Hutt crime lords in the Star Wars universe. These unscrupulous individuals are usually organized by the most influential and powerful families, sometimes called "kajidics", each led by a clan leader or a council of elders. The Council was the main governing body of the Hutt species and administered the Hutt Space, including the Hutt home world called Nal Hutta and its moon Nar Shaddaa.

The Hutt Council boasts a long history, extending back well before the rise of the Galactic Empire. Their influence spans many sectors within the Outer Rim Territories and thus, the Council had a significant impact on Interstellar politics. Strategic alliances, treacherous betrayals, and ruthless business dealings were all a part of the Council's playbook.

The council members met in the Hutt's homeworld, Nal Hutta, but also held meetings on the Smuggler's Moon, Nar Shaddaa. The Council's meeting chambers were grandiose, typically filled with opulence and extravagance that mirrored the Hutts' lust for wealth and power. Some of the most famous council members include notorious Hutt crime lords such as Jabba the Hutt and Mama the Hutt.

While the council members were crime lords, they generally did not tolerate open acts of aggression within their territories without their approval. This was seen when they put a bounty on the Sith Lord Darth Maul after he and his brother Savage Opress killed one of their council members. The Council also showed an understanding of political balance, recognizing the need to maintain a delicate equilibrium of power within their realms.

the Hutt Council represents the absolute authority within Hutt space. This influential council of crime lords wield power and entitlement, making crucial decisions that reverberate through the entire Star Wars galaxy. Yet, despite their self-interest and voracious appetite for power, they have demonstrated a compelling knack for ensuring their survival and maintaining their status—entities to be reckoned with in the Star Wars canon.
