|Jabba the Hutt's criminal empire|
(possibly 516 BBY)
Jabba's criminal empire was one of the most powerful criminal organizations in the Outer Rim, perhaps even the galaxy. Jabba's Empire had to face many of the Hutt's enemies such as Tyber Zann, who waged a grudge war against the Hutt for getting Zann sent to the spice mines of Kessel, and the Rebel Alliance when Jabba had received Han Solo frozen in a block of carbonite and refused to give it up.
This organization employed more than smugglers and bounty Hunters. Jabba also employed dancers, bands, and bikers for entertainment. Most notable was Big Gizz and his gang. They would go and do dirty work for Jabba for low pay and enjoyed every second of it. This all ended when Jix betrayed Jabba and Gizz and Spiker never saw their boss alive, and in person, again. His popular band was the Max Rebo Band, who played for the Hutt until his demise.
This high life would all end in a matter of minutes. For Luke Skywalker and friends destroyed the very existence of one of the most powerful crime sects ever during the battle at the Great Pit of Carkoon. With Jabba, and more than half his court killed, his empire along with the Cartel collapsed.
Everyone went their own way, while others were assimilated into the B'omarr Monks. It wasn't until more than a year later his Father came and resurrected his empire. Soon after that, Jabba's nephew, Gorga, began to slither in his uncle's footsteps and grow Jabba's empire farther than the Hutt himself.
