Description: Han was born on the planet Corellia during the waning years of the Galactic Republic sometime around 32 BBY. During his formative years, his father worked in the Corellian Engineering Corporation shipyards, building vessels such as YT-1300 light freighters until he was laid off. Solo's father wished he could leave Corellia on such a ship, but was never able to afford to. According to Han, he was never close with his father. At one point his father brought him to the freighter factory where he worked. His father pointed out that the ships being built there were his contributions to the galaxy, but that they really ultimately didn't matter. His father then advised him that Han wasn't meant to build ships, but rather to fly them.
When Han was about the age of eighteen, Han and Qi'ra were vying for the position of Head within the White Worms. During their respective assignments, Han and Qi'ra both failed to deliver as promised, leading them to be hunted down by factions such as the White Worms, the Kaldana Syndicate, as well as the Empire. Han had acquired a datacube with plans for a shield generator that was desired by all the factions. Han and Qi'ra had no choice but to partner up to find a resolution to their problems. Eventually, Qi'ra became Head thanks to Han's recommendation to Lady Proxima. As they later ate together, Han asked if he and Qi'ra were on their first date. Qi'ra denied it, but acknowledged the possibility that it could happen someday.
Sometime later, Han and Qi'ra began a romantic relationship. Intending to leave Corellia, Han stole a vial of the extremely valuable hyperfuel coaxium, as well as a speeder. Han attempted to take Qi'ra with him, but both were captured by the White Worms, and brought before crime boss Lady Proxima. Han threw a rock through a window, allowing the sunlight to burn Proxima's skin.
In the confusion, Han and Qi'ra escaped to the Imperial checkpoint, where they used the coaxium to bribe the officer on duty to let them through. However, Qi'ra was captured by the White Worms before she could cross the gate. Han swore to return for her.
Immediately after losing Qi'ra, Han enlisted in the Imperial Navy, with the assigned name of "Solo". His goal was to become a skilled pilot and eventually return to Corellia to find Qi'ra, but he was expelled from the flight academy for his tendency to disobey orders. Solo was instead drafted into the 224th Imperial Armored Division as a Corporal and deployed to an active combat zone on Mimban.
During the Mimban campaign, Solo encountered Tobias Beckett, Val, and Rio Durant, a gang of thieves who had disguised themselves as Imperial Army soldiers to pull a heist. Solo was initially beguiled, but soon discerned their true identities. He noticed Beckett, and his crew had blaster burns in some parts of their uniforms. Solo threatened to expose them if they didn't take him with them, but Beckett instead reported Solo to his superiors for insubordination.
Solo's commanding officer decided to execute Solo by giving him to "the beast," in fact the Wookiee Chewbacca, a prisoner of the Empire. Solo used his knowledge of Shyriiwook to convince Chewbacca to stage a fight with them, allowing them to escape imprisonment. They then managed to join a reluctant Beckett's crew. Chewbacca, grateful for Solo's intervention, proclaimed a life debt to the outlaw. Chewbacca thereby became Solo's lifelong friend.
Han Solo and Chewbacca began their outlaw lives working as part of pirate Tobias Beckett’s crew. The group were hired by Crimson Dawn to steal a train car of refined coaxium on Vandor-1. However, they failed due to the intervention of Enfys Nest and the Cloud-Riders, and Solo's decision to drop the cargo. Solo and Chewbacca promised Dryden Vos of Crimson Dawn an equivalent shipment that they would obtain unrefined by making the notorious Kessel Run. Vos sent Qi'ra, who had become his top lieutenant, with them.
Knowing they would need a fast ship to transport the coaxium before it degraded and exploded, Qi'ra introduced the pair to the self-proclaimed galactic entrepreneur and gambler Lando Calrissian. Solo played Calrissian in a game of "Corellian Spike" sabacc, with the stakes being Calrissian's YT-1300 light freighter, the Millennium Falcon. Solo lost the game due to Calrissian hiding cards up his sleeve. Regardless, Calrissian agreed to personally pilot the Falcon for the job in return for a cut of the profits.
Solo, Chewbacca, Qi’ra, Calrissian, and Beckett stole the unrefined coaxium from Kessel during a slave riot instigated by Calrissian’s navigational droid, L3-37. During the escape, Solo flew the Falcon, with Chewbacca as his copilot, for the first of many times. Because the crew stole the coaxium fuel as unrefined, it was necessary to make the escape from Kessel to the refinery on Savareen in record time, prompting Solo to plot a shorter, and much more dangerous course through the maelstrom that surrounded Kessel and near a gravity well called the Maw, reducing the typical distance required from 20 to 12 parsecs.
Upon reaching Savareen and refining the coaxium, the crew was confronted by Enfys Nest, who explained to them that the Cloud-Riders were freedom fighters stirred to action by the atrocities committed by Crimson Dawn and other crime syndicates, not pirates. Solo devised a plan to give the coaxium to the Cloud-Riders and give Vos fake coaxium, but Vos was prepared for their betrayal because of information given to him by his double-agent in the crew, Beckett.
However, Solo had double-crossed Beckett and Vos: the containers he left with the Cloud-Raiders were empty, and Nest dispatched the agents Vos sent to retrieve it. The coaxium Solo, Qi'ra, and Chewbacca brought to Vos was, in fact, genuine. Beckett managed to escape with the coaxium and Chewbacca as a hostage. Qi'ra betrayed and killed Vos, promising to follow Solo as he pursued Beckett. Solo found and killed Beckett, but could only watch as Qi'ra left him behind, leaving Savareen in Vos' yacht to meet Crimson Dawn leader Darth Maul. Solo entrusted the coaxium to Nest, who intended to use it to form a rebellion against the Empire.
Solo and Chewbacca tracked down Calrissian to a tropical world. Solo swiped the spare cards Lando held up his sleeve, and challenged him to a rematch of sabaac for the Falcon, a game which Solo won fairly. The Falcon instantly became Solo's most prized possession. With their new-found ship and confidence, Solo and Chewbacca began engaging in much more dangerous and risky criminal operations, eventually becoming smugglers. Around the same time, Chewbacca likewise hung a pair of chance cube dice above the freighter's piloting console.
