Hermaphrodite (masculine personality)
|Chronological and political information|
Beldorion was a Hutt Jedi Knight roughly four hundred years before the founding of the Galactic Empire. After being sent to Nam Chorios, he fell to the dark side and established himself as the ruler of the planet. He was killed in a lightsaber duel with Leia Organa Solo in 13 ABY.
Beldorion remains the only known Hutt Jedi. He was sent alongside fellow Jedi Knight Taselda to Nam Chorios almost four hundred years before the Great Jedi Purge, but both of them fell to the dark side. Beldorion established himself as ruler of the planet, struggling for power with Taselda. He gave himself such titles as "Beldorion of the Ruby Eyes" and "Beldorion the Splendid."
He later became a pawn of the humanoid Droch Dzym. With the Force and Dzym's help, Beldorion remained strong and youthful, his body pure muscle, avoiding the corpulence and immobility of most Hutts of his age. His body was significantly larger than that of a typical Hutt, stretching to nine meters in length, while a typical Hutt was rarely larger than three meters. Beldorion was quite spry, being able to slither around, whereas most Hutts preferred other, less exerting modes of travel. He wielded a purple lightsaber in combat.
While he helped hold Leia Organa Solo captive, Beldorion told her stories of the ancient Jedi Masters such as Thon and Yoda, whose power he admired, if not their principles. Despite the fact that his Force abilities were greatly boosted by the planet, Beldorion was sliced in half by Leia in a lightsaber duel.
In The New Essential Chronology, The New Essential Guide to Characters, Balance Point and The Planet of Twilight his name is erroneously spelled Beldorian.
