- "I figured talk of a reward would bring the biggest thieves and cutthroats in town slithering out of their holes. And thieves and cutthroats are exactly what I need. I'm looking for the biggest one of them all. A smuggler. By the name of Solo."
- ―Sana Starros
Sana Starros was a human female who lived during the time of the Galactic Civil War. She claimed to be married to Han Solo, though he denied it, and regardless they were not on good terms in the time after the Battle of Yavin. She traveled across the galaxy in search of Han, from Tatooine to the Monsua Nebula, in order to confront him.
Sana Starros was a human female who was born on the Smugglers moon Nar Shaddaa. She claimed to have married the smuggler Han Solo, though he denied she was his wife. The marriage was part of her and Solo's scam in order to pull off a robbery. However, Solo made off with her cut of the robbery. At some point, she came to believe that lying was the only thing that Han was good for, while Han saw her as someone dangerous to him, and tried to avoid her.
Galactic Civil WarEdit
- "You're alive, aren't you? But if you're hoping to stay that way, best remember one thing, boys... Han Solo belongs to me."
- ―Sana Starros, to Rodians who asked for a reward after providing her with information about her alleged husband's whereabouts.
Sana's search for Han led her to the desert world of Tatooine, where Han and his ship, the Millennium Falcon, had been shortly before the Battle of Yavin. Sana put out the word that she was looking for someone, that person being Han, and that she was offering a reward to whoever could help her find her supposed husband. A group of armed Rodians confronted Sana in the spaceport settlement of Mos Eisley, demanding to be given the reward money despite not being willing to help her on her mission. Sana used voice-activated smart-targeting scatterblasters from Nar Shaddaa that she had hidden under the table she was sitting at to shoot all four of the Rodians in the knees, and she threatened to shoot them in their faces if they did not provide her with information about Han's whereabouts. The lead Rodian relented and told Sana that Solo had left Tatooine after killing Greedo, a fellow Rodian.
Soon thereafter, Sana picked up Han’s location and followed him into the Moddell sector in the Outer Rim Territories. Han, who was accompanied by Princess Leia Organa aboard the Invictus, a stolen Imperial Lambda-class T-4a shuttle, fled from pursuing TIE/ln space superiority starfighters towards a planet in the Monsua Nebula, where the TIE fighters would not pursue due to dangerous electrical storms in the atmosphere. Sana arrived at the nebula and flew past the TIE fighters, the pilots of which were unwilling to pursue her or the Invictus onto the surface of the planet. Sana landed her ship near where Han was located, and the smuggler was displeased to see her. Organa asked who she was, and she introduced herself as Han's wife—though Han denied it—and demanded to know who the princess was.
During a brief exchange, in which Sana slapped Han for tasting like the Corellian wine that Leia had splashed in his face earlier, she revealed that the planet they were on was once a favored rendezvous point for the couple. Leia, announcing that this whole affair was none of her business, attempted to leave but after Han called out for her to stay, Sana realized the princess' importance, citing the large bounty on her head. It was at this point that the Imperials, who had sent an Imperial-class Star Destroyer into the nebula, caught up with the fugitives. Several TIE fighters and TIE/sa bombers began a bombardment of the surface, dropping proton bombs through the electrical storms below. Realizing an opportunity, Sana ordered her associate Cobra to fire on the stolen shuttle, destroying Han and the princess's only means of escape. She then announced her intention to turn Leia over to the Imperials and bring Solo back with her. She attempted to make contact with the Star Destroyer in orbit but was interrupted when Leia kicked Han into her and drew a weapon of her own. However, it was too late as the TIEs were already descending on their position. After the TIEs landed, the pilots got out of their craft and attempted to apprehend Organa, but she opened fire and killed two of the pilots. Solo convinced Starros not to collect Organa's bounty by explaining that he was part of the Rebel Alliance as well, and that he would likely be executed or imprisoned as well. Solo shot the last remaining TIE pilot, and the trio boarded the Volt Cobra. More TIEs appeared re-engaging the Volt Cobra, and jammed its transmissions.
