Now why is Bib Fortuna my favorite minor character? Because, even though he only gets a few minutes on screen, we know so much about the dude. Taking into account what I said above, I always get this feeling that he was the black sheep back on Ryloth - you know, basically the beginning of a Batman villain or something. He wasn't that attractive; well, he was gross. He had this weird oily headtail thing going on, and his eyes were sorta beady, and it kind of looked like he might have the gout, and dammit, he didn't have any eyebrows! So when Jabba offered him an inkling of power, he took advantage of it and became this gutless sycophant with nothing substantial motivating him. He has this exaggerated opinion of his own importance, as evidenced by his barring Luke from seeing Jabba about freeing his friends, but is ultimately mindless and easily susceptible to Luke's Force persuasion.
No, Bib Fortuna is not as epic as, say, Boba Fett, and he isn't as featured in the series as much as his boss, Jabba the Hutt, is. But I adore him. I want to watch a miniseries about his rise to his position as majordomo, from his humble beginnings as an outcast on his home planet to his probable death in Episode VI. I have the feeling it would be a more depressing, interstellar version of The Godfather. And that is something I could get behind.
BACK TO CHALLENGE
* One of my biggest pet peeves from the prequels is the use of "poo doo," first uttered by Jabba in Return of the Jedi. Lucas decided that "hahaha it sounds like they're talking about poop" or "awww it's a cute alien word for 'shit!'" instead of sticking with the original meaning: fodder. Or, I think more accurately, slop.
