Ziro Desilijic Tiure, also known as simply Ziro the Hutt, was a male oriented Hutt crime lord, a Vigo of Black Sun, and an uncle to Jabba Desilijic Tiure. The son of "Mama" the Hutt, Ziro was the brother of Jiliac, Pazda, Ebor, and Zorba Desilijic Tiure. Ziro is one of the only Hutts that have been heard to fluently speak Basic as opposed to Huttese.

During the Clone Wars, Ziro arranged a deal with the Confederacy of Independent Systems in a plot to gain more power amongst the Hutt clans. This plot involved the kidnapping of his own grandnephew, Rotta, who was Jabba's son. His plot was uncovered, and Ziro was arrested by the Galactic Republic and imprisoned in the Republic Judiciary Central Detention Center.

Following intense debate among the Hutt Council, the renowned Duros bounty hunter Cad Bane was hired to return him to the Council's custody, freeing him from Republic captivity following a bloody holdup of the Senate Rotunda and transferring him to a prison cell on Nal Hutta.

After concluding Ziro was too dangerous to the Council's operation to be left alive, Jabba the Hutt hired Sy Snootles, a singer and former lover of Ziro, to secure a datapad containing sensitive information regarding the Council. Though he was being trailed by Cad Bane, as well as the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Quinlan Vos, it would be Snootles who killed Ziro with two blaster shots to the chest.
