Background: Greedo was a male Rodian bounty hunter who grew up on Tatooine in Mos Espa. During the Clone Wars, he was hired by the Trade Federation to kidnap Chi Eekway Papanoida and Che Amanwe Papanoida, the daughters of Chairman Papanoida, but was forced by the chairman to lead him and his son Ion to them. He was occasionally hired by crimelord Jabba the Hutt for various mercenary jobs, including the capture of Han Solo, who killed the luckless Rodian.

Originally hailing from the swamp planet of Rodia, during his youth, Greedo relocated and lived on the desert planet of Tatooine. After the slave boy Anakin Skywalker won the famous Boonta Eve Classic, beating the renowned Dug racer, Sebulba; Greedo jumped to the conclusion that he had cheated. Angered by the false accusation, Skywalker consequently found himself entangled in a fight with the young Rodian. Wald warned Greedo that if he continued to pick on fights, he would eventually have a bad end.

By the Clone Wars, Greedo was employed to Jabba the Hutt as a bounty hunter. At some point in the war, he and another mercenary were hired by the Trade Federation to kidnap Chairman Papanoida’s daughters, Che Amanwe and Chi Eekway, to use as leverage for Pantora to join the Confederacy of Independent Systems. In the ensuing struggle, Che struck Greedo with an idol, covering it with the Rodian’s blood. After finding this blood sample while investigating his daughter’s kidnapping, Chairman Papanoida and his son Ion tracked the bounty hunter to Jabba’s Palace and presented the evidence to Jabba and his son Rotta. Greedo was forced to bring the Pantorans to the cantina in Mos Eisley where Che was being held. In the ensuing firefight, Greedo managed to slip away while the family gunned down the rest of Che’s captors.

Later, while continuing his work for Jabba, Greedo captured Figrin D’an of Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes and delivered him to Jabba, after which D’an and his band entered into indentured servitude under Jabba, due to D’an being in heavy debt to him. During their time there, the group kept tabs on Greedo using their superior hearing abilities, seeing how he would bring in small-time criminals, help them to escape, then bringing them back to re-collect the bounty. At one point, they discovered Greedo bringing in one unfortunate Jawa three times. Upon gaining enough money to free themselves, the band told Jabba of these events, which made him furious. This resulted in a grudge between Greedo and the band.

Sometime later Greedo was hired by Jabba to eliminate InterGalactic Banking Clan Vice Chairman Anolo on Mygeeto and acquire his Givin codebreaker. There, Greedo, Barada, and several of Jabba’s thugs lead a assault against the Vice Chairman and his guards. Greedo was able to kill Anolo and put the codebreaker into Anolo’s Office. In the office, Greedo used Anolo’s lightsaber to make his escape with the Givin. However, Greedo was unable to capture the Givin and it fell to its death. Greedo returned to Tatooine and went on his knees before Jabba at his palace. Greedo offered the lightsaber to Jabba, but refused it and Greedo faced the prospect of becoming the rancor Pateesa’s food. However, Greedo was saved when Dok-Ondar offered to buy the lightsaber from Jabba.

Collecting Debts

While at the Mos Eisley Cantina, Greedo attempted to collect money owed to him by Bith musician Lirin Car’n, bringing Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba as backup. However, Car’n was unable to pay as he had been robbed the previous night. Greedo allowed Car’n to live, raising his interest rate and giving him until next week to pay up, believing Car’n to be a waste of his time.


Greedo hunted Han Solo for the bounty Jabba placed on his head after the smuggler dropped a large shipment of illicit cargo owned by the Hutt to avoid arrest. Greedo was humiliated briefly at the Mos Eisley cantina when he was tripped by a piece of the instrument used by Ickabel G’ont, a member of the Model Nodes. He decided to ignore the insult, seeing payback against Solo as sweeter than revenge on the Nodes. Upon entering in cantina, Greedo saw how Wuher ordered the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 to get out. While the Rodian steeled himself mentally for the encounter, he thought about how his former lover Uncelta fell for Solo before this one broke her heart.

While at the bar, Greedo saw Baba lose an arm to the lightsaber of Obi-Wan Kenobi due assaulting Luke Skywalker, an event at which he merely laughed. However, this prevented Baba and Evazan from assisting Greedo, as had been previously planned, forcing the Rodian to improsive.

reedo challenged Solo at the Mos Eisley Cantina, where, threatening Solo with his gun, he demanded that he pay the money to Jabba and/or to Greedo himself; or hand over the Millennium Falcon. When Solo replied that he would rather die than give up his ship, Greedo said that was the idea before announcing that it was something he had been looking forward to for a long time. As Greedo pulled his trigger and said that he would end with him, Solo shot Greedo dead from beneath the table with his readily prepared blaster. Greedo, being a poor shot, missed Solo completely and the last thing that Greedo ever saw was a flash of bright light with a memory of bitter injustice.

Personality and traits

As a boy, Greedo was noted for his temper and tendency to pick fights with others, which his friend Wald warned would lead to trouble. In adulthood, Greedo was overconfident and slow on the uptake, and something of a poor shot with a blaster. He thought highly of himself as a “big time” bounty hunter due to his employment to Jabba the Hutt, though others saw him as unremarkable. He was a frequent customer of Chalmun’s Cantina, considering it his base of operations and preferred venue for death deals. He was known for rotten luck, and that proved true for the main time of his life.
