On the planet Tatooine, the Mos Eisley Cantina, also known as Chalmun's Cantina, is the hot spot for entertainment and intrigue. Many species intermingle there, spying and conducting shady business. Bounty hunters frequent the seedy joint, hoping to catch their prey in an unguarded moment. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker went to the cantina to find transportation off the planet, which led to their first meeting with Han Solo.
Greedo is a foul smelling Rodian petty thief who learned the bounty hunter trade from Spurch "Warhog" Goa. On Tatooine, Greedo became one of Jabba the Hutt's henchmen and was the Hutt's first choice to go after Han Solo. After many run-ins, Greedo and Solo confronted each other again in the Mos Eisley cantina...with deadly results for Greedo.
