Who did Jabba have a child with?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

Jabba Desilijic Tiure, the infamous Hutt crime lord and kajidii, had a child named Rotta. Rotta was born in the year 32 BBY, during a time of great turmoil in the galaxy. As a member of the Desilijic clan, Jabba was well-known for his criminal activities and his influential position within the Hutt society.

Unlike most Huttlets, who typically spend the first fifty years of their lives inside their parent’s brood pouch, Rotta had a different upbringing. Jabba made a conscious decision to expose Rotta to the galaxy at a much younger age, wanting him to directly experience the diverse and often dangerous world outside of their Hutt clan.

This decision was quite unusual for a Hutt, as they tend to be protective of their young and keep them sheltered within their brood pouches for an extended period. However, Jabba was known for his extravagant and flamboyant lifestyle, and he wanted his son to grow up understanding the intricacies of the criminal underworld and the vast opportunities the galaxy had to offer.

Jabba’s decision to have a child was not solely based on a desire for a successor or heir. Instead, he saw Rotta as an extension of himself, an opportunity to mold and shape a being who could carry on his legacy and further expand his criminal empire. Jabba had a vision of Rotta becoming a powerful and influential figure within the Hutt society, someone who could continue his reign of power and dominance.

It is important to note that Jabba Desilijic Tiure was not involved in a traditional romantic relationship when Rotta was conceived. Hutts, being hermaphroditic species, are capable of self-fertilization. However, it is unclear whether Rotta was the result of Jabba’s self-fertilization or if he had a partner from another species involved in the process. The details surrounding Rotta’s conception are not widely known or documented.

Rotta, the child of Jabba Desilijic Tiure, was born into a world of crime and power. Jabba’s decision to expose Rotta to the galaxy at a young age was a departure from traditional Hutt customs but aligned with his desire to shape his son into a future leader. While the specifics of Rotta’s conception remain unknown, his upbringing and potential as a successor to Jabba’s criminal empire were of utmost importance to the notorious Hutt crime lord.
