D: Jabba Desilijic Tiure / 土豪惡覇

賈巴(Jabba)是 Nal Hutta 星球上的土豪惡覇,他招攬犯罪分子無惡不作,獨覇一方。這種角色有典型的自大性格,是一些極權領袖的寫照;他們擁有財富和勢力就不可一世,不斷為自己積聚更多的財富。



D: Jabba Desilijic Tiure

Jabba was the crime lord of the notorious desert on the planet of Nal Hutta. He was known for his various illegal activities and cruelties. This type of tyrant character is usually arrogant, mean and an example of extreme dictatorship. Tyrants tend to keep accumulating wealth and power even though these may not last.

Life is not just about being wealthy. Jesus once told a story about a rich man who had a good harvest. He then decided to tear down his barns to build bigger ones in order to store more grains and goods. The rich man proudly said to his soul, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.” (Luke 12:19) However, that very night his life was taken from him.

It was not God who took away the rich man”s life. It was the weight of his riches (and pride) that buried him. Those only focus on accumulate wealth in their own self interest will eventually lose their life in the process. Sadly, this is the fate of many in this modern age.
