Lando Calrissian made a name for himself as captain of the Millennium Falcon and a sportsman seeking a fortune at the galaxy’s sabacc tables. After he lost his beloved ship to Han Solo, he spent years living the high life and pursuing get-rich-quick schemes, with uneven results. He went semi-respectable as the administrator of Cloud City, only to be drawn into the fight against the Empire. His quick wit and daring helped the Alliance destroy the second Death Star, completing Lando’s evolution from smooth-talking smuggler to galactic hero.
A grubby, scarred smuggler from Alsakan, Cornelius Evazan was once a promising surgeon, but became notorious for conducting cruel medical experiments. Dr. Evazan tried to bully Luke Skywalker in the Mos Eisley cantina, boasting that he faced a death sentence in 12 systems. The doctor and his pal Ponda Baba assumed the young farmboy would be an easy target, and paid little heed to the old man in dusty robes who’d accompanied young Luke into the bar. That was a fatal mistake: when Evazan hurled Luke aside and pulled his blaster, Obi-Wan Kenobi coolly ignited his lightsaber and cut Evazan down.
Stormtroopers are elite shock troops fanatically loyal to the Empire and impossible to sway from the Imperial cause. They wear imposing white armor, which offers a wide range of survival equipment and temperature controls to allow the soldiers to survive in almost any environment. Stormtroopers wield blaster rifles and pistols with great skill, and attack in hordes to overwhelm their enemies. Along with standard stormtroopers, the Empire has organized several specialized units, including snowtroopers and scout troopers.
