"Fenris swears she'll find Han's route and claim it for her own, except the Maw is full of black holes, and she isn't quite sure which two Han went between."
―Midnight writes about Fenris in his book[3]

The Maw Cluster,[2] also known simply as the Maw,[3] was a cluster of churning[2] black holes[3] that could confound navigation computers[2] located in the Akkadese Maelstrom.[3] The largest[2] and the worst[4] of these, was The Maw, and it was given wide berth by sensible travelers.[2]

Theories suggest that the source of spice within Kessel is the turbulent area of space that surrounds the planet. Over eons, debris from churning singularities of the Maw Cluster and surrounding Akkadese Maelstrom accumulated into the planetary mass.[2]

After Han Solo and his colleagues made the Kessel Run in a record twelve parsecs on the YT-1300 light freighter known as the Millennium Falcon, Astrid Fenris' speculated that Solo had flown the freighter between two black holes in the Maw Cluster, and therefore the credit for the run should go to the gambler Lando Calrissian, who owned the ship at the time and so had been responsible for any modifications that allowed it to survive the pull of the black holes. After she declared her intent to find Solo's route and claim it for her own, patrons began asking her is she had tested her theory yet each time she visited the Lodge. As Fenris was unable to determine which of the two many black holes in the Maw Solo had supposedly used, she began avoiding the topic and would quickly become interested in any other subject when asked about it.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

The Maw Cluster was first mentioned in Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide, a reference book written by Pablo Hidalgo and released in 2018.[2] It originated in the 1994 Star Wars Legends book series The Jedi Academy Trilogy. In the Star Wars Legends continuity, the Maw Cluster surrounded a prison that contained Abeloth, a powerful member of The Ones.
