Star Wars: A New Sound
More than 15,000 years before the battle of Yavin, Hutt internal strife exploded into a full-fledged civil war. The warrior culture demanded fierce fighting for dominance and defense of one’s clan. The vicious civil war spread throughout Hutt Space, decimating colonies and laying waste to the Hutt homeward of Varl. Hutt society was irreparably damaged. The horrifying war and its terrible consequences ultimately forced the Hutts to seek out a new philosophy, much as they were forced to move on to a new homeworld. Varl still remains sacred, protected and off limits to non-Hutts.
