Background: Numerous Hutts employed various Gamorreans throughout the ages. One of them was the intergalactic kingpin of crime, Jabba the Hutt. He was fond of hiring Gamorreans because they were so inexpensive, as well as because their thick mindedness made them immune to dirty tricks such as bribery. Twelve Gamorreans were brought to Tatooine by Han Solo and Chewbacca at the request of Jabba. In order to seal the contract the crimelord agreed to fight them all at once but only if they were blindfolded. They agreed and when they were unable to see Jabba, the Hutt ordered a group of his thugs to beat them. The nine that survived dutifully pledged themselves to the Hutt that they thought gave them a good thrashing. Of the nine surviving, two were named Gartog and Ortugg. Ortugg was the leader of the Gamorreans, who looked down upon Gartogg, the most unintelligent Gamorrean in the palace. Even his fellow Gamorreans shunned him.

Among the Gamorreans in the employ of Jabba the Hutt were Gorc and Thok, brothers imbued with the “magic power” to emit fire from their mouths, in actuality a sign of their Force-sensitivity. In the custody of the darksider Sariss following an incident in Mos Eisley’s Red Moon Saloon, Thok revealed his brother’s abilities, leading to Gorc’s mutation and subsequent membership in Inquisitor Jerec’s band of seven Dark Jedi who were looking for the lost Valley of the Jedi. Thok himself was acquired by Emperor’s Hand Arden Lyn, who trained the Gamorrean in the art of Teräs Käsi after defeating him in single combat.

Two of Jabba’s trusted Gamorrean guards served after the Hutt’s death with Bib Fortuna and again with Boba Fett.
