"Han Solo, ha. If I'm around, you don't need that guy."
―Dash Rendar[src]

Dash Rendar was a male smuggler[1] and mercenary[2] who lived during the reign of the Galactic Empire. During his travels, he encountered the Wookiee Chewbacca and fellow smuggler Han Solo.[1] A hotshot[2] who claimed to be better than Solo, Rendar later claimed that it was Chewbacca who was the real brains behind their operation. Rendar also marked a map of the Kessel Run that was included in Midnight's journal.[1] He piloted a YT-2400 light freighter and worked for the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[2]


Behind the scenes[]

"I got lauded for "restoring" Dash in a Solo book. (And if that made you happy, I'm glad. Seriously!) But I was basically goofing on him as a Han clone...."
―Jason Fry[src]
