Star Wars: Pandora's Legacy
Human Scoundrel and Businessman
Lando is a strikingly handsome man of slightly above average height, with dark skin, a dazzling smile, and smooth mannerisms. While known for occasional risk taking, and a weakness for gambling, this scoundrel-turned legitimate business man is an entrepreneur at heart.
He may be a bit too smooth for some tastes. His slick delivery and courtly graces can occasionally come across as too manufactured to be genuine.
Name a shady profession, and Lando has probably tried his hand at it. A professional gambler, smuggler, and con-man, the Socorro-born human discovered a knack for civil administration after winning the title of Baron Administrator of Bespin in a game of sabaac.
Juggling the needs and resource of various city departments was a lot like running a long con; as long as he could keep the game moving forward, everything seemed to come together. Before he knew it, he was actually successful, albeit not without a dire cost: duty.
That price came due when the Empire took an interest in Bespin’s militarily valuable Tibanna Gas facilities. At almost the same time his old friend and rival Han Solo arrived with Princess Leia Organa and Chewbacca. Lando had little choice; he was responsible for the well-being of over five million citizens, and had no illusions about what Vader was capable of.
So Lando gave up Solo and his companions, only to find that Vader was betraying him regardless. To the mind of the seasoned gambler, this hand was no longer playable. Take decisive action, Lando reversed course, evacuated the city, and launched a rescue effort that secured Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca, though it was too late to save Han. They managed to reach the Rebel Fleet, and there met the crew of the Second Chance while debriefing General Rieekan.
Lando vowed to do everything he could to do right by his lost friend. Together with a suspicious Chewbacca, the pair set out to find a way to save the famed pilot from Jabba the Hutt. Bereft of a ship while waiting for the Millenium Falcon to be repaired, their first stop was the industrial world of Sullust, where they encountered the crew of the Second Chance again. Lando convinced them to help him, infiltrate the lack Sun Criminal empire, believing that the backing of the powerful syndicate would allow him to bring pressure to bear against the powerful Hutt Cartel controlled by Jabba.
