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

Dash Rendar was a male smuggler who lived during the reign of the Galactic Empire. During his travels, he encountered the Wookiee Chewbacca and fellow smuggler Han Solo, and 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]

"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...."
