"I am Oncho, whom the villagers have chosen as their spokesman."
―Oncho Shen[src]

Oncho Shen was a poor farmer on the world of Aduba-3. He had a daughter named Merri.


Shen served as his village's spokesperson when Han Solo and Chewbacca led the Star-Hoppers of Aduba-3 who came to protect them from Serji-X Arrogantus.

When Merri's grandfather, the Old One, claimed he could rescue the village without Solo by summoning an ancient monster, Oncho dismissed the old man.

Behind the scenesEdit

It is unclear whether the Old One was Oncho's father or father-in-law. Oncho is Merri's father, and the Old One is her grandfather, but Oncho never addresses him directly.

Oncho was created by Roy Thomas, Howard Chaykin and Tom Palmer.
