Greedo the Younger
Real Name:
Search for 'Greedo the Younger' on Amazon


Powers:
Heightened tracking and hunting skills, as is common to his race.

Weaknesses:
A really, really, really bad shot.

Bio:
Despite his poor performance in his only filmed appearance, his life in the expanded universe shows a different dimension to his character--one of persecution by another clan of Rodians, that sent his family into hiding on a jungle planet, and, later, to the Hutt-controlled city-planet of Nar Shaddaa.

As a hub of criminal activity, Nar Shaddaa encouraged the less-savory aspects of his natural Rodian inclination toward hunting. He soon slipped into a life of petty crime in order to get enough money for a space vessel of his own. In one of these acts of theft, he stole valuable power couplings destined to be installed in Han Solo's Millennium Falcon, but Solo, seeing a lot of himself in the young Greedo, took no great offense to the prank. In fact, he traded his beloved jacket for the couplings, and the two seemed, from Solo's perspective, to have parted amicably. Greedo, though, felt humiliated and vowed revenge.

Soon after, Greedo fell in with some bounty hunters on Nar Shaddaa, and they recognized him as a potential talent in the business. After some initial tests, they eventually presented him with a choice. He could either stay with his family on Nar Shaddaa, or some with them to Tatooine, where the bounties offered by Jabba the Hutt were legendary.

He took their offer without even saying goodbye to his mother. Perhaps as karmic retribution, his very first assignment was to bring in the bounty on Han Solo.

Notes:
(Unofficially?) called "Greedo the Younter" in deference to his father, whom the Expanded Universe regards as the Rodian with whom Anakin was scuffling in a deleted scene from The Phantom Menace. He is distinct from Anakin's podracing pal in the theatrical release of The Phantom Menace, who was named Wald. Please see the notes at Greedo the Elder for a more complete discussion of this canon conundrum.

The name of his doomed clan of Rodians was Tetsu. This clan was murderously opposed by the militarily adroit Chatza clan, led by Navik the Red.

It is unclear whether Greedo the Younger actually ever graduated from his apprenticeship with Goa to become a full member of the Bounty Hunter's Guild.
