- "An oppressed and miserable species, the Evocii were once Hutta’s sole inhabitants. They were a primitive people, existing in small tribes and possessing basic technology. Then the Hutts came, exchanging their advanced machines for Evocii land until they had bought up the entire planet. Now the Evocii are enslaved, preserved only to serve their corpulent masters’ whims. While a few brave Evocii actively oppose the Hutts’ tyranny, most have resigned themselves to a life of servitude. The Evocii are generally found in small, impoverished tribes on Hutta and Nar Shaddaa, though a lucky few have managed to escape the Hutts’ influence and carve a life for themselves elsewhere."
- ―In-game Codex (Species)
When the Hutts arrived from their homeworld Varl more than ten thousand years ago, the Evocii were amazed by the wonderful technologies that the slug-like aliens brought with them. Soon they began exchanging pieces of their homeworld in exchange for the technology the Hutts brought with them, until they realized that the Hutts owned almost their entire world. Hutt palaces, amusement parks and other constructions were built all over Evocar, and the Evocii were powerless against the Hutts.
