A brief guide to the Star Wars universe: Greedo


One of the most memorable characters from A New Hope, this big-eyed bounty hunter has a run-in with Han Solo in the Cantina at Mos Eisley.

Greedo pulls a gun on Han Solo while he desperately chases a debt, but Han is quicker off the draw and Greedo comes to a swift end. Greedo’s death scene was famously tampered with for the special editions to make it seem like Greedo shot at Han first, but in the original cut of the film, Han shoots first and kills Greedo outright. This is something that irks fans to this day!

Character cool factor: 8

Most likely to: chase you for money

Least likely to: find a pair of subtle spectacles
