Hermaphrodite (masculine personality)
|Chronological and political information|
- "Oruba feels the Council will be safer with Ziro under their protection."
Oruba was born on Nal Hutta around 899 BBY to a wealthy Hutt family. At some unknown point in his life, Oruba became the leader of his clan's Kajidic, which earned him a spot on the Clans of the Ancients.
Around 21 BBY, the Council, including Oruba, had Ziro broken out of prison by a Duros bounty hunter named Cad Bane, which he ended up taking the Galactic Senate hostage and freeing Ziro successfully. The Council had Ziro sent to Gardulla's Palace on Nal Hutta, and intended on interrogating him about a holo-diary that cataloged the nefarious deeds of the Council. Arok, Marlo, Gardulla, Gorga, and Oruba got angry with him and had the purple Hutt imprisoned. But singer Sy Snootles broke Ziro out and soon killed him on Teth.
Around 20 BBY, Mandalorian Pre Vizsla and Dathomirian Zabraks Darth Maul and Savage Oppress came to Nal Hutta to ask for an alliance with the Hutts, but it turned into a skirmish and as a result, Oruba was killed by Savage when Oruba told him where Jabba and Gorga were. Savage struck the ancient Hutt down after Oruba began pleading for his life. Oruba was replaced by a distant relative of his, Oruba Desilijic Fortiure.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Oruba was identified by his relatively narrow head for a Hutt and the fact that he was wearing clothes. He also wore a kind of beret on his head. Oruba's pale skin was due to a genetic defect that left it without pigment, and prone to chaf. He wore clothes to hide his condition.
