An agent of the feared Guavian Death Gang, Bala-Tik’s black leather coat and percussive cannon indicate his status within the galactic underworld. Bala-Tik negotiates business for the Guavians, backed by faceless, voiceless cybernetic soldiers awaiting the signal to take action. Bala-Tik considers Han Solo a capable smuggler and a valuable source of information, but his patience with the slippery Corellian and his endless excuses has all but run out.
Known for its distinctive red-armored foot soldiers, the Guavian Death Gang is a criminal organization driven out of the Core Worlds by unrest in the galactic underworld. Guavian Death Gang soldiers undergo cybernetic augmentation, with a mechanical reservoir and pump injecting chemicals into their bloodstreams to enhance speed and aggression. They are silent in battle, communicating via high-frequency datastreams. Han Solo ran afoul of the Guavians for failing to repay their 50,000-credit loan.
A poor replacement for the lost Millennium Falcon, the Eravana was a Baleen-class bulk freighter used by Han Solo and Chewbacca to move cargoes – some legal, some decidedly not – across the galaxy. The massive ship’s bow section was dominated by a forward hold that doubled as a docking bay, while a transport grid created a labyrinth of cargo containers bound for various starports. After Han and Chewie retrieved the Falcon, they left the Eravana in the hands of the Guavian Death Gang.
Han Solo rose from an impoverished childhood on the mean streets of Corellia to become one of the heroes of the Rebel Alliance. As captain of the Millennium Falcon, Han 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. After the Battle of Endor, Han faced difficult times in a chaotic galaxy, leading to a shattering confrontation with his estranged son Ben.
During his long life Chewbacca has been many things: Wookiee warrior, ace smuggler and rebel hero. Chewie fought with the Republic on Kashyyyk during the Clone Wars, then befriended Han Solo while in Imperial captivity on Mimban. After adventures on Vandor and Kessel, he became Han’s co-pilot aboard the Millennium Falcon, and eventually helped the Alliance restore freedom to the galaxy. Known for his short temper and accuracy with a bowcaster, Chewie also had a big heart – and unflagging loyalty to his friends. He stuck with Han through years of turmoil, and flew the Falcon alongside Rey after the Corellian’s death.
Rathtars are dangerous tentacled predators known for their sophisticated techniques as pack hunters. These slimy horrors were responsible for the infamous Trillia Massacre – which has made them irresistible to decadent collectors seeking exotic pets for their menageries. Han Solo agreed to collect rathtars for King Prana, a credit-making scheme that was reckless even by Han’s unique Corellian standards.
