During the Clone Wars, Ziro arranged a deal with the Confederacy of Independent Systems in a plot to gain more power amongst the Hutt clans. This plot involved the kidnapping of his own nephew, Rotta, the son of Jabba the Hutt. His plot was uncovered, and Ziro was arrested by the Galactic Republic and imprisoned in a Republic Detention Center. He was then rescued by the bounty hunter Cad Bane at the discretion of the Hutts. He was then killed by his ex-lover at the orders of Jabba the Hutt.
