Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up… gambling, and generally living life under the radar. Lando won a cargo ship called the Millenium Falcon in a bet, and sought out a pilot and smuggler named Han Solo. The two shared many misadventures together, but usually came out on top.

Living… in Cloud City, a flying metropolis, where he attempts to run a legitimate business while still carrying on with his shadier commercial pursuits under the table. He’s happy to host his old friend Han Solo, who is travelling with Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker, two important members of the Rebel Alliance, during the raging war against the Empire. Lando grants them sanctuary from the Empire, but can Han completely trust such a fast-and-loose friend?

Profession… officially the Administrator of Cloud City, but at heart he’s still asmuggler and gambler. Lando is an all-around trickster. Although he puts up a big front as a friendly businessman, he willingly deals with anyone who will pay him a handsome sum—no matter what the risks.

Interests… money, gambling, and adventure. Lando has spent years running from the law and has loved every minute of it.

Relationship Status… single. He’s something of a ladies man and charmer. He takes an immediate liking to Princess Leia, but that’s true of many women he meets. Flirtation is standard with Lando.

Challenge… remaining loyal to his old friend Han Solo. This doesn’t seem too difficult until you realize how much the Empire would pay for the bounty on Han Solo’s head. After all, Han flew his ship in a rebel fleet during the battle that ended in the destruction of the entire Death Star.

Personality… charming, crass, and conniving. He has quite a way of making old friends feel at home. When he first sees Han Solo again he calls him a “slimy, double-crossing, no-good swindler,” which coming from Lando is practically a compliment. Although he may not be the most upstanding citizen, he claims he’s “just trying to help.”
