- "Han Solo, ha. If I'm around, you don't need that guy."
- ―Dash Rendar
Dash Rendar was a male smuggler and mercenary who lived during the reign of the Galactic Empire. During his travels, he encountered the Wookiee Chewbacca and fellow smuggler Han Solo. A hotshot 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. He piloted a YT-2400 light freighter and worked for the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
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
Dash Rendar was first mentioned in Star Wars canon in the 2018 journal book Solo: A Star Wars Story: Tales from Vandor, written by Jason Fry. Fry later revealed on Twitter that Rendar's inclusion in the book was a meant as a humorous nod to the character's reputation for being extremely similar to Han Solo.
