The Hutt Gambit
Tall and lean, with red hair, green eyes and pale skin, Rendar was considered attractive and was popular with both students and teachers alike during his time at the Imperial Academy. The death of his brother changed Rendar, leaving him with a bitter resentment of both the Empire and Black Sun. He lost the clean-cut looks and well-spoken voice, developing a more chiseled, muscular appearance with the lazy, insolent attitude common among smugglers, and giving those he met the impression of a rugged, streetwise mercenary with a sharp wit.
Despite his outward appearance of nonchalance, Rendar is constantly aware of his surroundings and his hand rarely stray far from his blaster. These traits mark him as a survivor, and he is even prepared to fake his own death to avoid retribution.
Rendar is a skilled pilot. While studying at the Imperial Academy, he frequently impressed both his fellow cadets and his instructors by executing maneuvers that pushed the ships he flew well beyond their usual limits. After leaving the Academy, it was not long before Rendar discovered that his piloting skills had the potential to serve him well as a smuggler. Never short of confidence, Rendar frequently boast that he is able to fly any ship and is equally good with a blaster. Having always sought excitement, he is more than willing to try any stunt, no matter how dangerous, to back up his claims. Some believe Rendar’s arrogance and reckless attitude are simply to impress his peers; others think that he is attempting to push himself and discover his own limits. While Rendar focuses on his flying skills, he lacks the patience for the less glamorous aspects of smuggling, and prefers to delegate tasks such as conducting repairs and arranging meetings to Leebo.
Dash Rendar is a Human male smuggler and freelancer. Born into a wealthy Corellianfamily during the final years of the Galactic Republic, he chose to pursue a career as an officer in the Imperial Navy rather than joining the family shipping business. When his parents refused to sell their business to Prince Xizor, owner of Xizor Transport Systems and leader of the Black Sun crime syndicate, the Dark Prince sabotaged a freighter flown by Rendar’s older brother, Stanton, killing him as his ship crashed into the Imperial Museum. Moving to the Corporate Sector, Rendar began to forge a place for himself among the galaxy’s fringe elements as a freelance spacer. Rendar was not content to take easy, low-paying work, instead choosing to take jobs with higher risk in return for higher reward, and was prepared to work for whoever offered the most credits. During this time he worked as a smuggler, bodyguard, mercenary, thief, and card cheat. Rendar made a name for himself as a hot-shot pilot. Among Rendar’s employers has been the Twi’lek crime lord “Uncle” Vanya,
