Star Wars: The Old Republic
Nem'ro the Hutt
Hutt Crime Lord of Nar Shaddaa
When a Hutt reaches the pinnacle of his career, it is his right and privilege to let his mind and body atrophy—to turn away from menial concerns and strictly indulge his appetites. So it goes with Nem’ro.
Decades ago, Nem’ro was a scheming and ambitious leader among the gangs of Jiguuna, one of Hutta’s prominent industrial towns. Block by block, factory by factory, he took control through brutality, blackmail and sheer business savvy. He paid his henchmen handsomely, and overthrew Jiguuna’s previous ruler in a bloody coup. He never did get rid of the competing gangs; he just cowed them and demanded a share of the profits.
