"Let me give you some advice. Assume everyone will betray you and you will never be disappointed."
―Tobias Beckett to Han Solo[src]

Tobias Beckett was a human male member of Crimson Dawn who mentored young Han Solo during the reign of the Galactic Empire.[2] He was a survivor and quietly worked out angles that enabled him to come out ahead.[3]


Tobias Beckett was a member of Crimson Dawn, a criminal organization led by Dryden Vos. Beckett was instructed to retrieve a crate of coaxium from a 20-T Railcrawler conveyex transport on the planet Vandor-1; he went on this mission with his lover, Val, and Rio Durant.

On Mimban, Beckett, Val, and Durant retrieved a ship. They recruited Han Solo and Chewbacca, took the two with them to Vandor-1, and clashed with the Cloud-Riders led by Enfys Nest. Beckett lost Val, Durant, and the coaxium he sought during the scuffle. He reported back to Dryden Vos and was able to avoid execution by promising to retrieve unrefined coaxium from Kessel. Beckett had to make room for Qi'ra on his crew in accordance with his leader's wishes.

Taken to Kessel by Lando Calrissian and L3-37 on the Millennium Falcon, Beckett successfully obtained the necessary amount of coaxium and travelled with his accomplices to Savareen so the unstable material could be refined and they could rendezvous with Dryden Vos. Once on the planet, Beckett showed his true colors to Han, Qi'ra, and Chewbacca. He betrayed the three and abandoned Dryden. He attempted to take the coaxium for himself, but he was shot and killed by Han.

Behind the scenesEdit

"I play a guy named Beckett, who's kind of a criminal and a mentor to Han."
―Woody Harrelson, on Tobias Beckett[src]

Tobias Beckett appears in Solo: A Star Wars Story and is portrayed by Woody Harrelson. Early fan speculation believed that Harrelson would be playing Garris Shrike—Han Solo's mentor in the Star Wars Legends continuity who first appeared in A. C. Crispin's The Han Solo Trilogy book series—but this theory was proven incorrect when Harrelson revealed Beckett's name on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.[5]

According to screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan, Beckett is based on Long John Silver, the main antagonist of Robert Louis Stevenson's 1883 novel Treasure Island.[6]
