However, the Shell Hutts chose to protect themselves from external radiation - which about the only thing that will naturally kill a Hutt - by enclosing themselves in riveted metal shells. They broke away from the rest of the Hutt clans, which had failed to genetically alter themselves to protect against radiation, several millennia before the Battle of Yavin, choosing to encase themselves and perpetual their lines. The shells must be continually shed as the Shell Hutt grows, and the donning of a new shell is often a cause for celebration. Everything but the Shell Hutt's face is contained within the shell. Even their hands are hidden inside, manipulating the controls which maintained the shell's repulsor engines and directional thrusters.

this woman, a native of the planet Kuat, was that planet's Senatorial representative to the New Republic. She was considered handsome, with flowing black hair and a slender build. She was relatively new to the politics of the galaxy, having grown up in a family of wealthy industrialists. When Kuat of Kuat committed suicide by destoying a section of Kuat's orbiting drydocks, the Shesh family lost much of their enterprise and, therefore, much of their status. In order to rebuild the Shesh name, the family began making alliances with the fledgling New Republic, despite the continued Imperial control of the planet. Their persistence paid off when the Empire was forced out of Kuat, and the Shesh family was awarded huge contracts. Viqi herself decided to go into politics and a short educational career as a marketing executive, some six years before the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy. Senator Shesh was one of the few voices in the Senate who worked toward a solution to the Yuuzhan Vong attack which would best suit the needs of the Republic, and not individual worlds. She loved the feeling of power, and was attracted to beings who held power. It was even rumored that she was taken with Chief of State Borsk Fey'lya for a short time. She had been approached by none other than Nom Anor, who recruited her to the Yuuzhan Vong cause. Shesh spoke to the Senators and appealed for unity in devising a suitable response to the Yuuzhan Vong, rather than having individual worlds try to work against each other. She later entered into a deadly game of cat and mouse, pretending to be a traitor to the New Republic and dealing with both Borga the Hutt and Nas Choka to provide information on the Republic. She also used this tenuous position to spy on the enemy, and return information to the Republic on their actions. It was later revealed that it was Viqi Shesh who had provided the Yuuzhan Vong with the news of Elan's seeming defection. During this time, Shesh was appointed to be the ninth member of the New Republic Defense Force's leadership committee, and cast the deciding vote for defending Bothawui instead of Corellia. She was subpeonaed by the Senate Justice Council in the aftermath of the Battle of Fondor, and was advised by her lawyers to provide only the facts as she knew them, in order to avoid further investigation. Later, she began meeting with liaison Pedric Cuf, whom she knew to be working for the Yuuzhan Vong. Shesh insinuated herself into position to head SELCORE, which allowed her to strand great numbers of refugees on defenseless worlds, where they could be taken by the Yuuzhan Vong for slave labor or sacrifices. She also began working toward her own form of peace, and promised the Yuuzhan Vong that her agents would completely dismantle with repulsors on Centerpoint Station to prove her truthfulness. Senator Shesh also managed to gain a position on the New Republic Military Oversight Committee, and she hoped parlay this position into an election as Chief of State, when she began plotting the assassination of Chief of State Fey'lya. However, this incredible workload eventually began to wear on her. When Leia Organa Solo began to understand Shesh's role in the invasion, and started exposing bits and pieces of the plans, Senator Shesh launched a secret, personal series of attacks on the Solo family. These led to her undoing, as she was caught on surveillance cameras acting against the New Republic. She was run out of politics, and barely managed to flee Coruscant with her life. She was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong and threatened with death, but she insinuated to Warmaster Tsavong Lah that the Shapers were working against him. She had just enough circumstantial evidence to remain alive, especially when a series of events lent unexpected credence to her claims. However, she was trailed everywhere she went by Denua Ku, and was later forced to accompany the warrior to Coruscant to track down any Jedi still on the planet. She managed to escape several times, and nearly fled the planet aboard the Ugly Truth, but was thwarted each time by her captor, Denua Ku. When the warrior was impaled, Shesh left him for dead and tried again to reach the Ugly Truth, only to find that it had been confiscated by the Jedi. She was confronted once again by Denua Ku, but rather than allow herself to be killed by the Yuuzhan Vong, Shesh threw herself out a window and fell to her death.

this weapons expert served as one of the first Emperor's Hands, training the clones of Sa Cuis for Emperor Palpatine during the early years of the New Order. Although he favored the vibroblade, Sheyvan was equally skilled in the use of a lightsaber. Like many of Palpatine's Hands, Sheyvan believed he was the only being directly serving the Emperor, and he was angry and suspicious when he discovered that there were many other Hands scattered across the galaxy. Sheyvan's anger and frustration were only compounded when he learned that another on of the Emperor's Hands was Sa Cuis, a man he had admired. During the flight that transported Palpatine's clones of Sa Cuis back to Coruscant, Sheyvan managed to lead the Cuis clones in a revolt against their master. When Darth Vader confronted Sheyvan about his treachery, Sheyvan railed against the Emperor, demanding that his loyalty to the Empire deserved better than the lies Palpatine had used to control him. After the Dark Lord managed to defeat or destroy the six Cuis clones, Vader sliced Sheyvan from shoulder to hip after a brief struggle, ending the revolt and snuffing out the life of another Emperor's Hand. In the aftermath of the failed rebellion, Vader realized that it had all been a test of the clones of Erv Lekauf, and that Sheyvan's death had been only one among the trillions Palpatine had caused in his lust for power.
