Die wanna wanga!
~ Bib Fortuna.

Bib Fortuna is a male Twi'lek character in the Star Wars franchise. Bib severed as a majordomo to Jabba the Hutt for years. He was Jabba's right hand in Return of the Jedi, the last film of the original trilogy, and had a cameo along with Jabba in The Phantom Menace, the first film of the prequel trilogy. He also appeared in the season 2 finale of the Disney + live action show The Mandalorian.

He was portrayed by Michael Carter, and voiced uncredited by the late Erik Bauersfeld, who also voiced Admiral Gial Ackbar. He was later portrayed by Matthew Wood in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace who also portrayed him in The Mandalorian.

Although he was Jabba's right-hand secretly he hated the hutt and tried to have him killed many times. Bib came into Jabba's service when his race casted him out of their society. Bib worked as a smuggler before he became a majordomo. He also worked as a slaver for Jabba, providing him with captive dancing girls.

Biography

Not much is known about his life on his home world Ryloth and his past criminal life before he worked for Jabba.

Bib was the one who brought Oola the green twi'lek to Jabba. He found her in a small tribe on his home planet Ryloth she was the daughter of a chief but her family was poor so she studied dancing to escape her home for a better life her skills caught the attention of Bib who was impressed. Bib made a deal with her father so he could take the female Bib didn't believe that the chief would honor his word so he kidnapped her and took her to Tatooine. On the way there Bib Fortuna lied to the young female and tricked her into thinking Jabba was a great ruler and made her believe she would be living a life of luxury. When they arrived she was horrified by what she saw but Bib was pleased since Jabba loved his new slave as much as his majordomo.

When R2-D2 and C3PO arrived at the palace to bargain for a captive Han Solo, Bib took them to them into the throne room to meet the master of the palace. Bib was seen talking to one of the slaves in Jabba's Palace a human girl named Jess when Oola no longer pleased Jabba so she was dropped into the Rancor Pit below the throne room. Bib dragged Jess over to the grate in the middle of the room to watch.

Later when Luke arrives at the palace Bib tries to stop him from disturbing Jabba while he is sleeping Luke uses the force on his weak mind and makes Bib Fortuna take him to see Jabba. When the hutt is awakened he is angry at his majordomo for having a weak mind and falling for Luke's Jedi Mind trick. When Luke killed the rancor Bib followed Jabba and the other minions on to his sail barge the Khetanna to watch the Rebel's be executed.

Legends

Bib fled the barge before it exploded, and returned to the palace along with a few other survivors. He then met up with the B'omarr monks, and they performed their ritual on him by placing his brain in one of their droids.

Canon

Having survived the explosion of Jabba's sail barge, Fortuna took over his palace and presumably the remains of his criminal empire. During his reign he grew to resemble his former master more and more, gaining a significant amount of weight and having a female twilek slave chained to his throne. However about five years after Jabba's death the presumed dead bounty hunter Boba Fett and his partner the assassin Fennec Shand arrived at the palace and killed Fortuna's guards while his guests ran away. Fennec then freed the slave and signaled her to go. Fortuna nervously greeted Fett like an old friend and told him that he thought he was dead. Fett quickly shot him dead and took his place on Fortuna's throne.

Personality

And this creature, this heap of fat and entrails and low cunning, this thing has made a servant of me. Worse, a slave. He degrades me, abuses me, amuses himself by abusing me. Me! Whose shadow he is not fit to touch!
~ Bib on Jabba the Hutt.

Bib Fortuna is a dishonest, sneaky, greedy and lustful trickster, tricking Jabba and making him think he is a loyal henchman while secretly plotting his demise and luring many females into slavery with false claims. He is good at making deals and manipulating others into carrying out his orders. Like Jabba he enjoys the torture of the Hutt's enemies and slaves and is also quite perverted.
