Star Wars: Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy’s Most Notorious by Pablo Hidalgo

Coruscant Police Report: Level 1313 Precinct.

Case No: 66        Date: 32 ABY

Reporting Officer: Paulitano Soot (Badge #2187)

Incident: Recovered Case Files

Detail of Event:

Officers received an anonymous tip reporting that a Devaronian street gang had obtained a cache of stolen police case files. Upon entry into the gang’s hideout, Officers Soot and  Dax Dhur (B#327) witnessed the gang’s leader, Balria, making plans for a spice heist on a local Hutt syndicate. Maps and files were scattered all over the warehouse. Balria and the rest of the members of the gang wouldn’t give up any details upon initial questioning.

Description of Evidence:

Three generations of case files from the Divo family, who have dedicated their lives to enforcing the law all over the galaxy for many decades. Grandfather, Tan Divo from The Last Days of the Republic. Mother, Andressa Divo from The Time of the Empire. Son, Exantor Divo from The New Republic.

Files contain descriptions of crimes from the Core to the Outer Rim. Detailed offenses of the most wanted criminals in the galaxy: Cad Bane, Hondo Ohnaka, Hutt syndicates, a troop of Bounty Hunters and the members of Enfys Nest. See Below: Rebellion leadership  is also profiled.

The files also include comprehensive drawings of stolen artwork, artifacts, and even counterfeit credits. These illustrations are so detailed and life-like that any forger could easily use these images for malfeasance.


Actions Taken:

Maps and files were placed in our most secure evidence bin, #1138. This material could be used as a road map for current criminals. The who’s who of past criminals, particulars of tactics, and descriptions of weapons, would be very dangerous if obtained by the wrong people. Balaria and his gang will be interrogated for information regarding  how they received the documents.


This is my creative review of Hidalgo and company’s new book Star Wars: Scum and Villainy. The book is a collection of case files, the criminals and their crimes. All pages are fully illustrated with the high-quality art work that is the standard of Star Wars books. I loved it. It would make a perfect holiday gift for your favorite Star Wars fan. Here’s a link to the book on Amazon.

Thank you to NetGalley, Quarto Publishing Group – Epic Ink, and Pablo Hidalgo for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
