  • Darez Wuht, nicknamed Admiral Dizzlewit, was a male Duros admiral who served as a commanding officer of the Duro Defense Force during the Yuuzhan Vong War.


    A male Duros from the world of Duro, Wuht served in the New Republic Navy admiral. During the start of the Yuuzhan Vong War in 25 ABY, helped oversee the refugee population and their SELCORE work agreements, but failed to give it the time many thought it deserved. This earned him the disdain of the local populace and the nickname "Admiral Dizzlewit." Eventually, he commanded a Mon Calamari Star Cruiser called the Poesy.

    During the Battle of Duro in 26 ABY, the Yuuzhan Vong demanded that the fleet around the planet surrender or they would destroy the orbital cities as well as the planet. While onboard the Poesy, Wuht was forced to agree to this and was met by members of the Peace Brigade to negotiate the terms. That was when Mara Jade Skywalker, the wife of Luke Skywalker, met with him and persuaded him to fight the Yuuzhan Vong by revealing their true intentions. Darez agreed to Mara's pleas and shot one of the Peace Brigaders. Eventually, Admiral Wuht then led the brave, but ultimately futile fight against the Yuuzhan Vong assault on Duro. However, he and Commodore Mabettye were both killed as the cruiser was destroyed by swarms of enemy coralskippers when the shields were weakened throughout the battle.
