"To the seventh dungeon with the conqueror fool. There he shall subjugate rotworms, while his gearwork soldiers shall stand in glorious tribute to High Exaltedness Kossak."
Kossak the Hutt

This conflict was fought between the Hutt Empire led by Kossak the Hutt and the warlord Xim the Despot's Empire. The Hutt victory at the Third Battle of Vontor in 25,100 BBY through the use of Klatooinian, Vodran, and Nikto conscripts paved the way for Hutt domination at least in the Outer Rim and ended the reign of Xim.

Background

The warlord Xim the Despot had inherited the acquisitions of the Cronese Sweeps within the Kingdom of Cron from his ruthless pirate father around 25,130 BBY. Following in his father's footsteps, Xim invaded and conquered large areas of the neighboring space with his armies and fleets which were equipped with the highest technology available at the time including beam tubes, kiirium, mytag crystals, and war droids. He controlled his conquests through his dreaded secret police, the GenoHaradan, and the use of terror tactics such as mass executions.

The first ten years of Xim's reign were his Expansionist Period, and he conquered most of the Tion Cluster, including the Livien League which contained the world Desevro. Xim's empire eventually stretched from the Radama Void to the Maw and numbered thousands of worlds. It might have been conflict over criminal interests, competing territorial ambitions in the Si'Klaata Cluster, or both which brought Xim into conflict with the Hutt Empire which now bordered his conquests.

Description

Little is known about this conflict as many records of it have been lost or retold over the centuries as in the case of the Hutts and Tionese. What is known is that Xim's war fleet devastated the lush Hutt world of Ko Vari. Privateers hired by the Hutts harassed Xim's shipping, sapping his material and leading him to handle logistics in an increasingly paranoid fashion, sending secret shipments to fortified bases.

In 25,105 BBY, Xim's fleet was demolished by the Hutts at the First Battle of Vontor. Despite this, two more battles took place on the planet for a further five years. With both funds and manpower draining, Hutt representatives brokered an agreement known as the Treaty of Vontor with several warlike sentient species from the Si'Klaata Cluster: the Klatooinians, Vodrans, Weequay, and Nikto. This agreement sealed the fate of these species in eternal Hutt bondage.

In 25,100 BBY, Xim was defeated by Kossak the Hutt at the Third Battle of Vontor. His remaining armies held up on the planet were already short of ordnance due to privateering harassment and low on morale due to earlier defeats and were thus wiped out by the Hutt forces.

Aftermath

Xim died in captivity within the grim dungeons of Kossak at the Hutt capital of Nal Hutta, though Tionese history claimed that he was treacherously killed at Vontor. His treasure ship, the Queen of Ranroon, escaped to the planet of Dellalt where it would be guarded for millennia by a cache of Xim's war-robots and a secret brotherhood known as the "Survivors," descended from the original crew and elite guards on board the ship.

The sentient species who were originally recruited as allies to defeat Xim were pressed into Hutt servitude well into the days of the New Republic under the terms of the Treaty of Vontor. Ko Vari never fully regained its former glory and became somewhat of a backwater throughout the reign of the Galactic Republic. Meanwhile, the Tion Cluster split into several warring factions including the Honorable Union of Desevro and Tion.

Despite his reign of only thirty standard years, Xim's influence would continue through history with the study of him and his empire being known as Ximology. It was even rumored that the GenoHaradan survived as a secretive, but powerful, criminal syndicate as late as the Jedi Civil War. The romance of Xim's lost treasure would inspire fortune-seekers throughout history, until it was discovered millennia later by Han Solo and the Ruurian historian Skynx.
