- "Jabba, if you wanna see me come see me yourself. Don't send one of these twerps."
- ―Solo refers to Brynloo and his companions while speaking with Jabba
Ront Brynloo was a human male pirate who worked as an enforcer for the crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure. He spent time at Chalmun's Cantina in the spaceport of Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine before accompanying Jabba to find the smuggler Han Solo in Docking Bay 94. Brynloo and several other thugs began searching around Solo's ship the Millennium Falcon, but the smuggler then arrived and offered to pay Jabba back the money he owed the Hutt for dumping a shipment of his spice. After haggling with Solo over interest on the debt, Jabba called off Brynloo and the others and they left the docking bay.
A native of the planet Corellia, the human male Ront Brynloo was a pirate who served the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure as an enforcer. In the year 0 BBY, he and two other thugs were drinking at the bar of Chalmun's Cantina in the spaceport of Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine when the local moisture farmer Luke Skywalker and the hermit Obi-Wan Kenobi entered with the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO.
He and the two others then left the cantina and joined the Hutt and several other enforcers including the bounty hunter Boba Fett in traveling to Docking Bay 94 in Mos Eisley, where the YT-1300 light freighter known as the Millennium Falcon was docked. The starship belonged to Han Solo, a smuggler who worked for Jabba, but owed him after dumping a shipment of the Hutt's spice in space upon encountering an Imperial ship. Brynloo and his colleagues began searching around the ship as the crime lord called out to Solo to come meet him. The smuggler was not inside the ship however, and surprised Brynloo and the others when he addressed Jabba from the entryway to the bay, having just arrived from the nearby cantina.
The Hutt chastised Solo for having not repaid him and for killing Greedo, another of his thugs, in the cantina. Solo then offered to repay the Hutt with interest using credits from a job he had just accepted from Kenobi. The two haggled over the interest percentage the smuggler would pay, settling on fifteen percent. Satisfied, Jabba called off his men and Brynloo and the others made their way out of the docking bay.

Behind the scenesEdit
Ront Brynloo was portrayed by the actor "Big" Ron Tarr in the film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which was released on May 25, 1977. He was present for two scenes in the film, the cantina and the docking bay, the latter of which was cut from the original 1977 release of the film but then included as part of the Special Edition re-release of the film in 1997. The character went unnamed for forty years after his first appearance, until Lucasfilm Story Group member Pablo Hidalgo named him using the actor's name and after attendee Bryan Lewis at the "Behind the Scenes of the Cantina" panel at Celebration Orlando on April 15, 2017.
