Jabba the Hutt was one of the galaxy’s most powerful gangsters, with far-reaching influence in both politics and the criminal underworld. There were no second chances with Jabba, something Han Solo would find out -- though the slug-like alien would ultimately fall victim to his own hubris and vengeful ways.
Smuggler. Scoundrel. Hero. Han Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon, was one of the great leaders of the Rebel Alliance. He and his co-pilot Chewbacca came to believe in the cause of galactic freedom, joining Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa in the fight against the Empire.
Luke Skywalker was a Tatooine farmboy who rose from humble beginnings to become one of the greatest Jedi the galaxy has ever known. Along with his friends Princess Leia and Han Solo, Luke battled the evil Empire, discovered the truth of his parentage, and ended the tyranny of the Sith.
With his customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanor, Boba Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. A genetic clone of his “father,” bounty hunter Jango Fett, Boba learned combat and martial skills from a young age. Over the course of his career, which included contracts for the Empire and the criminal underworld, he became a legend.
Lando Calrissian preferred to operate outside the jurisdiction of the Empire. As administrator of Cloud City, a Tibanna gas mining facility hovering in the atmosphere of the planet Bespin, Lando welcomed his old friend Han Solo along with Leia, Chewbacca, Artoo and Threepio. But Lando had in fact made a deal with Darth Vader to capture the Captain Solo in exchange for the security of Cloud City. With Solo frozen in carbonite and taken to the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt, Lando recognized the gravity of his betrayal and tried to make things right. Later, Calrissian led a starfighter attack which resulted in the destruction of the Empire's second Death Star.
A harsh desert world orbiting twin suns along the Outer Rim of the galaxy, Tatooine is a lawless world ruled by the immoral Hutts. Most settlers operate moisture farms in the desert, but cities such as Mos Espa and Mos Eisley attract a wide range of criminals and rogues. Tatooine's many dangers include sudden sandstorms, bands of roving Tusken Raiders, and carnivorous krayt dragons. Tatooine is also known for dangerous Podraces, rampant gambling, and legalized slavery.
