Biography

He was known as the "axe-wielder" and worked well with Rogua, a fellow Gamorrean. Ortugg was uncompromisingly loyal to Jabba, as long as he was given food to eat. During one night he interrupted Dannik Jerriko when he tried to feed on the soup of Yarna d'al' Gargan. He and Rogua were present when R2-D2 and C-3PO entered the palace, and the pair were later Force choked by Luke Skywalker when they attempted to block his entrance. He also was one of the guards who laughed at Jubnuk as he lay helpless in the eyes of the rancor. He was killed when Jabba's sail barge blew up.

Behind the scenes

Ortugg is said in the Rebellion Era Sourcebook to have remained behind at the Palace when Jabba died at the sarlacc pit, still waiting for their master and driving off all intruders. This contradicts the evidence of the movie and other sources, though it is perhaps possible that some Gamorreans did continue to guard the Palace afterwards.
