- "Do not wait for opportunity to strike. Steal it instead!"
- ―From the Book of Hondo
The Book of Hondo was a book written by Hondo Ohnaka, a notorious Weequay pirate active during the Clone Wars and Imperial Era. It was published a few years after the Battle of Endor. The book outlined Ohnaka's philosophy regarding his nefarious lifestyle, and it included advice such as "stealing" an opportunity rather than waiting for one. Considered to be Ohnaka's most infamous contribution, the Book of Hondo was rumored to have inspired other well-known criminals, such as the "Crimson Corsair."
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Book of Hondo was first mentioned in the epigraph of "The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku," a short story written by Landry Q. Walker and released as an eBook in 2015 under the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens publishing label. In 2016, the short story was republished in the book Tales from a Galaxy Far, Far Away: Aliens: Volume I, although the epigraph which mentioned the Book of Hondo was not included.
