Gardulla Besadii the Elder, better known as Gardulla the Hutt, was one of many powerful and greedy Hutt crimelords that controlled Tatooine. At one point, the feminine-natured Hutt owned Anakin and Shmi Skywalker. However, she would eventually lose them to the Toydarian junk dealer, Watto, in a podracing bet. Excessive gambling would continually mar her long life with failure and defeat. Gardulla the Elder was the mother of Decca and Gardulla Besadii the Younger.
