Stories in Star Wars LegendsEdit
- "We know [Rendar is] designed to be around while the swashbuckling Han is encased in carbonite, but we don't want Dash to be a carbonite copy of Mr. Solo. Our suggestion is that rather than thinking of him simply as a mercenary, Dash is more like a swaggery Top Gun-style fighter pilot. A guy with real talent but a bit of a braggart and a blowhard, too. Luke doesn't like him, not only because of this in-your-face personality but also because of the natural competitiveness between these two pilots."
- ―Bantam Spectra editor Tom Dupree's pre-manuscript note to Steve Perry
The character of Dash Rendar was developed for the 1996 Star Wars Legends multimedia project Shadows of the Empire and appeared in its novel, comic and video game incarnations as well as few other pieces of Legends media; examples include Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance, Rebel Dawn, and Shadow Games.
