this former Moff controlled the Hutt space arund Nal Hutta during the early years of the New Order. A tall, sallow man with ascetic looks, Shild wore no jewelry except for a black krayt dragon pearl in one earlobe, mirroring his jet-black hair and black uniform. He received several unsolicited "political contributions" and other gifts from the Hutts, and he, in turn, left the Hutts alone to do business as they pleased. He honored this agreement until a group of rebels, smuggled onto the planet Rampa II, destroyed an Imperial outpost there. Shild then issued orders to cut off any and all smuggling in his sector, and bring the Hutts to their knees. Jabb and Jiliac sent Han Solo to bribe the Moff, but he refused to be swayed. He ordered Admiral Greelanx to attack Nar Shaddaa and wipe out the smugglers' moon, but the assault failed for several reasons. Shild retired to his estate on Teth, only to learn that his beautiful aide - cunningly played by Bria Tharen - had left him. Rather than face the wrath of the Emperor, Shild committed suicide.
