Stories in Star Wars LegendsEdit

"We know [Rendar is] designed to be around while the swashbuckling Han is encased in carbonite, but we don't want Dash to be a carbonite copy of Mr. Solo. Our suggestion is that rather than thinking of him simply as a mercenary, Dash is more like a swaggery Top Gun-style fighter pilot. A guy with real talent but a bit of a braggart and a blowhard, too. Luke doesn't like him, not only because of this in-your-face personality but also because of the natural competitiveness between these two pilots."
―Bantam Spectra editor Tom Dupree's pre-manuscript note to Steve Perry[src]

The character of Dash Rendar was developed for the 1996 Star Wars Legends multimedia project Shadows of the Empire and appeared in its novel,[3] comic[4] and video game incarnations.[5]
