"Sorry, pal. It's either you or me…and I like me more."
―Rekias Nodo, to Han Solo[1]

Rekias Nodo[2] was a reptilian male criminal and mechanic who ran a shipyard on a jungle planet, stripping down stolen starships for parts. After the smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca crash-landed on the planet, Solo was caught attempting to steal a heat exchanger to repair his vessel, the Millennium Falcon. Solo claimed that he was Jabba the Hutt, which deceived Nodo until the crime boss Lallani visited the shipyard to capture "Jabba." The smugglers managed to escape, rescuing the slave Meecha Odon and several hostages from Nodo.[1] Following the encounter, Nodo placed a bounty on Han Solo's head sometime after the two encountered one another.[2]
