this man was one of the many descendants of Hugo Bartyn, and served as the twenty-third mayor of Bartyn's Landing during the years surrounding the Battle of Naboo. Many saw Guther's tenure as a new low-point in the governing of the settlement, similar in many ways to the tenure of Hugo bartyn himself. Guther lacked any charisma or personality, and seemed to have learned decorum and manners from the Hutts. Although he grated on nearly everyone he worked with, nobody had the bravery to confront him about it. Guther spent most of his time with one of his many mistresses, or working on his personal ship, the Tria Blue. After the Tria Blue was destroyed by Menahuun insurgents, Bartyn began to fear for his life, and spent much of his time hiding in the family estate, located at the foot of Mount Hugo. After a group of freelance agents were able to negotiate a peace treaty with the Menahuun, Bartyn found himself in an unenviable position. His family's history of genocide against the Menahuun was revealed, and the Outer Rim Oreworks corporation severed all ties to him and his family. Bartyn himself was forced to seal up the secret entrances to the mines, and was ordered to relinquish control of Bartyn Gourmet Delicacies. His tenure as administrator of Bartyn's Landing was brought to an end, and democractic elections were held to replace him. Although he lived peacefully for several months with the new situation, Bartyn's mind eventually snapped, and he set out to re-activate the MMV mining droids that were guarding his tunnels. The local law enforcement agency was forced to arrest Bartyn and send him to jail.
