Rula was a smuggler captain in command of a fleet of twenty ships. Prior to the Galactic Civil War, Han Solo had smuggled guns with Rula's fleet. They had attempted to hide from the Galactic Empire on the edge of the Hapes Cluster. However, a single Hapan Battle Dragon discovered them and destroyed all but three of Rula's ships. The event left Han Solo with a long-lasting distrust of Hapans.
