Lando Calrissian has been called many things over the years; con artist, smuggler, and rogue. He never expected to be called a leader and war hero...but then, he never dreamed that the Empire would force him to betray his best friend.
His past a well-guarded secret, the charming and roguish gambler used to travel the galaxy as captain of the modified Corellian light freighter, the Millennium Falcon. He lost the ship in a high stakes game of sabacc to his good friend and fellow gambler, Han Solo. Lando embarked on a galaxywide tour to see what the future held for him, eventually winning control of Bespin's Cloud City, a floating mining and gambling establishment infamous throughout the galaxy. As the city's new Baron Administrator, Lando proved adept at administration, helped by his chief aide Lobot. Cloud City and its Tibanna gas mining operation, were profitable, and Lando became a respectable businessman.
Lando was soon to get a jolt from visiting Imperial forces. The Dark lord of the Sith, Darth Vader, forced him to betray Han Solo. The Baron Administrator grudgingly set Solo up for a fall, but when Vader changed the terms of the deal Lando took action. Helping free Princess Leia Organa and Chewbacca the Wookiee, Lando abandoned his precious Cloud City and escaped in the Falcon. A fugitive from the Empire, Lando Calrissian's future now lay with the Rebel Alliance...and his first task would be to help rescue Han Solo.
