About Han Solo:
Brian Daley wrote a series of books, the first published in 1979, exploring Han Solo and Chewbecca’s smuggling adventures which further develops the character’s backstory. Ann C. Crispin’s The Han Solo Trilogy describes Han Solo as a beggar and pickpocket throughout much of his youth.
He becomes a pilot and, in the process of undermining a religious fraud, falls in love with Bria Tharen, who disappears before Solo joins the Imperial Navy. Solo loses his commission and is cashiered when he refuses an order to skin Chewbacca for commandeering a ship carrying Wookiee children destined for slavery; Chewbacca, in turn, swears a “life-debt” to Solo.
The two become smugglers, and help repel an Imperial blockade of a Hutt moon. Solo soon thereafter wins the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian in a card tournament.
