Could They Survive: Hans Solo

Happy Star Wars week everybody. In honor of the festive spirit, this month we’ll be reviewing the survival ability of the four most popular Star Wars characters, starting with Hans Solo. Could They Survive: Hans Solo?

Survivability: 5/7

Who Is He?

Hans Solo is one of the main characters in the Star Wars saga. He is seen as the primary deuteragonist in Star Wars. Hans is usually seen driving around the galaxy with his best friend, and co-pilot Wookie Chewbacca in his commonly known ship The Millennium Falcon. He began his career as an Imperial cadet and infantryman before turning to a life of smuggling. After rescuing Luke Skywalker he became a chief figure in the alliance and led the resistance multiple times throughout the series. When he was young he was seen as greedy, egotistical, selfish, and money-hungry. After he joined the alliance he had a change of attitude and became responsible, intelligent, brave, and loyal.

His Skills

He is an excellent marksman with his signature DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. Besides The Millennium Falcon, he is skilled at piloting all aircraft in the galaxy. He is multilingual and speaks all the major languages with the Star Wars universe. He has demonstrated in multiple situations that he can keep a level head in a highly stressful situation. He has excellent leadership skills. His only downfall is his cockiness and smugness. The reason being is, he’ll put himself in dangerous situations which may then put others at risk when they reach out to rescue him. Despite his loyalty, he still has a love for money which puts him at risk of notorious thieves. His ship can also be a weak point because of the sheer size of it. Every time he lands, it puts him and Chewie at risk of zombies staggering on the ship without there knowledge.
