|Despite the availability of better weapons, Jabba's nine Gamorrean guards stubbornly insisted on carrying crude vibroaxes built by Snogrutt, a master weapon maker from their home clan at Groogrun. Led by a brutish fellow by the name of Ortugg, the Gamorreans patrolled the palace's dungeons, searching for spies who were plotting against Jabba's best interests and keeping a close eye on any "suspicious" visitors. The Gamorreans' favorite duty was guarding prisoners, since Jabba made it quite clear that they could use their axes on any internee foolish enough to try to escape.
The vibroaxe's wooden shaft holds a .6-meter wide hollow axe head that contains both the ultrasonic generator and the power cell. A tremendous amount of vibration is transferred down the wooden handle, and Gamorreans are among the few creatures with enough strength to handle these difficult devices. The Gamorreans often chose to use their weapons in unpowered mode to demonstrate their great strength, although most of Jabba's guests believed the simple creatures tended to forget to power up their weapons - caught up in the excitement of battle.
