"Manny Both-Hanz died to bring us this information."
―Mon Mothma[src]

Manuel "Manny" Both-Hanz was an agent of the Rebel Alliance, a very short Human or near-Human. He appears to have been involved in a romantic relationship with Mon Mothma, the Alliance Chief of State.

Biography[edit | edit source]

In 4 ABY, it was Manny who discovered the existence of the second Death Star; he was also able to pinpoint the exact location of the Emperor's new battlestation in the Endor system, and learned that the Emperor himself would be personally overseeing the final stages of the construction.

To communicate this information to the Alliance High Command, he made a rendezvous with Tag Greenley and Bink Otauna on Tatooine. Tragically, he was shot by Boba Fett in an altercation in Mos Eisley spaceport, but Tag and Bink successfully passed on the information to Mon Mothma, enabling the Rebellion to destroy the Empire.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

While on shuttle Tydirium, Tag and Bink reported to Mothma who requested them to present Both-Hanz to the Imperial High Command, so that the Empire wouldn't suspect that the transaction was succeeded. Dressed as Royal Guards, they delivered his body to the Death Star.

Later during the briefing before the Battle of Endor, Mothma recounted with grief in her voice that "Manny Both-Hanz died in the process" of bringing the information to them.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Manuel Both-Hanz appears only in Kevin Rubio's parody comic book The Return of Tag & Bink: Special Edition; his name is a pun on the line "Many Bothans died" in Mon Mothma's dialogue in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.
