Han was born and raised on the planet of Corellia, the only son to Nathin and Jeaan. His father was captain of a spice freighter, while his mother was a mechant trader. Occasionally, Han would get to spend time with his father on long travels, in which he developed a fascination with piloting starships as a boy. His most vivid memories were those of him sitting next to his father in the co-pilot's seat, while he navigated.
At the age of ten, his mother and father were killed; the victims of a freighter accident. An explosion consumed the entire hangar bay as his father was fueling his YT-1300, while his mother was tending to the dockmaster. The Empire in that time, investigated the incident and ruled it as an accident. Han was currently enrolled in school when this happened. It was then his aunt and uncle were contacted on Alderaan about the tragic event, and came to Corellia to take in the young boy.
Han's first vivid memories of his aunt, Fraacis Elara, was of her sitting him down and telling the young boy that his parents were killed from that fateful accident. The event of the news traumatized him for many months, realizing the fact that he no longer had a mother or father to take care of him anymore. Haiden and Fraacis Elara took him in temporarily for a few months on Alderaan, until an appropriate moment presented itself for a foster family to adopt him.
Unfortunately, he never got to know his aunt and uncle well. He was adopted to a foster family a few months later, and once again settled on Coronet. Haiden and Fraacis could not longer afford to keep Han anymore, due to their financial strains.
Before he left to his homeworld with his new family, his uncle Haiden exposed the truth to him. His parents were actually murdered by the Empire, because of their tied sympathies to the Rebellion. At first, the young boy took it in disbelief, but the eventual destruction of Alderaan later on, reinforced his uncle's truth inside him as he grew older. It has now become a secret obsession as to who was responsible for giving that order, and it has been brewing inside him for years.
To this day, Han has made it a habit to journey every year to the same site of the accident, and leave a small boquet in memory to his real parents.
From the age of ten to eighteen, Han bounced from foster family to foster family, always being the one rebellious in their homelives. Although he hated the enviroment he was raised in, he channeled his frustrations and excelled in his schooling, learning to apply himself in his repair and mechanical skills. The blonde Corellian graduated with high honors, in which his foster father pressured him to enroll in the Imperial Academy on Carida. A heated debate ensued between them, as Han was still convinced that his biological parents were murdered in the accident, by the same Empire. The hatred he had for the Emperor's New Order was apparent, as he knew his foster parents were supporters.
The very next day at the age of eighteen, Han ventured off on his own to seek his own life and destiny, packing what little he had in a large, military-surplus travel bag and fifty credit chips, then left his last foster home. He spent his time on the streets, occasionally sleeping on the Golden beaches, and developed a fondness for surfing. Little did he know in a month, he made ties with a Rebel cell after being reffered by a wookiee named Shorova.
Which was the best thing to happen to his life. He was welcomed into another "family" and this family had a cause. A true cause for him to embrace, and he learned what he could to enhance it. During this time, he decided to fufill what he always desired as a kid. To fly a starship.
And he did… The T-65 starfighter.
It was around two and a half years after the Battle of Endor that Han joined Rogue Squadron, and played a major part in the liberation of Imperial Center, or Coruscant as it's now known. Han and his squadron helped bring down the shields to Imperial Headquarters, so Rebel commandos could land. From that heated battle, Han earned his Bloodstripe(2nd Class) for his courageous efforts.
Han now flies the ever-famous Incom T-65 Space Superiority Fighter, or as all have come to know it as the X-Wing, or snub fighter. His callsign is Rogue Seven, and his fellow pilots named him "Iceman" for his cold, precise manuevering in tight situations. He proudly display his kills, and they are painted on the side of his X-wing in dark red color, by his canopy.
Many of his pilots, friends, and companions know him as a scoundrel, a scruff, and all around bad boy with a bad attitude. In his off hours in Rogue Squadron during his past, he used to spend time in the pubs and bars that litter the Core Worlds during his missions, getting in brawls or using his Corellian charm on attractful women. Those days now have past, ever since the discovery of a new flame he has been consumed with; a blonde smuggler by the name of Samantha Koortyn. The two pilots met on Dantooine, and developed a strained partnership. In time, it eventually became a caring relationship after the capture of them aboard a Star Destroyer, during a mission to the Hoth system.
In an effort to recover from the ordeal and to get to know Sam better, Han suggested a vacation to Ithor. In reluctance, Sam agreed but only if she could take Han to her old stomping grounds on the smuggler's moon, Nar Shaddaa.
The Corellian agreed, and their adventure begins…
Han is tall and athletically built, with the look and attitude of a cocky fighter pilot; his blonde hair always trimmed in a spacer haircut style. He is mechanically inclined, intelligent, impatient, stubborn, and at times, selfish. The Corellian's wit and sarcasm has led him into trouble with his superiors, and has incited many bar fights. His cocky nature, and his slow temper has also led him in other predicaments as well. For that, he carries a record in his NR file for his rebellious manner, which is why he has not accelerated in rank. His pride and ego sometimes gets the best of him in situations, at times. Han takes unneccessary risks, which makes others think of him as brave, or incredibly stupid. It would explain the Bloodstipe he earned in the past.
There have been many missions where his instincts have saved him from death. His fellow wingmen joke that he is Force attuned. Han does not believe in the Force. He believes the entire Jedi philosophy is a bunch of mumbo-jumbo, and it's religion, hokey. He believes in using a combination of skill, and being attuned to what's around you to be a better fighter pilot. To Han, nothing beats a good blaster strapped to his side to keep him out of danger.
Han carries a personal attachment to his BlasTech DL-44, as it was his father's. It was given to him by his uncle when Han returned for a visit, at the age of nineteen. His father's weapon was recovered in a trunk among his personal items in their old home, by Haiden. Apparantly, his father left it holstered in his bedroom on accident, when he left to tend to fueling his freighter.
Han is not fluent in any languages other than Basic, but he does understand Shyriiwook, Huttese, and Rodian. He also comprehends droidspeak as well. His favorite color is dark green.

The BlasTech DL-44 is a weapon used by gunmen, smugglers, and other dangerous people with quick reflexes, keen peripheral vision, and a willingness to do anything for survival. Han Antilles was known for using a modified DL-44 on his adventures in Rogue Squadron. The weapon is extremely powerful and can kill a human in a single shot. The weapon was also used by Rebel troops, and the weapon was capable of piercing Stormtrooper armor and could kill enemy units where other weapons could not.
The DL-44 is a crude weapon which delivers tremendous damage. The weapon can be held and fired in one hand. The DL-44 can fire at an optimum range of twenty five meters and a maximum of fifty meters. The blaster's XCiter consumes energy at four times the rate of the standard blaster, which drains the power pack after twenty-five shots. Because of this, it is necessary to aim carefully when firing, or energy will quickly run out. The DL-44's grip has a vibrating 'cautionary pulser' which silently alerts the user when the energy can supply five shots or less. A quick release lever and the power pack's convinient location in front of the trigger allow a very quick replacement of drained packs. Because of it's excessive power consumption, soldiers are usually equipped with at least a dozen power packs to ensure adaquate ammunition.
Han Antilles carries these spare power packs in his utility belt.
Han Antilles: Rogue Two
The most famous of all the Rebel Alliance fighters, no other starfighter invokes such passion in those that think about them, which probably has alot to do with the story of a simple farm boy that destroyed the mighty Imperial Navys first Death Star, and then went on to become a great Jedi Master.
It makes an excellent all round fighter and is in such demand that each ship is flown almost continuosly in the struggle against the Empire. The four wings can actually fold to appear as two, while this increases speed and manueverability, especially in atmospheres though it renders the weapons inoperable, however, with the wings in an open X formation, the starfighter is able to use it's 4 Taim & Bak KX9 lasers and is additionally equipped with proton torpedoes for extra potency against stronger vessels.
Originally conceived as a commercial project, before the Empire shut all such ventures down in the interests of security and maintaining order, the Incom team attracted special attention from Imperial security forces as it was suspected that they held sympathies for the Rebel Alliance. Many were detained and questioned for several days, until a crack Rebel commando team not only managed to rescue the Incom employees but captured all data and prototypes of the innovative X-Wing. Not only that but they were also able to destroy any remaining information to the point that made it impossible for Imperial technicians to replicate any part of this outstanding starfighter.
Because the starfighter does not have a navigational computer powerfull enough to calculate jumps through hyperspace, it is neccesary for an R2 unit to be inserted into the socket behind the cockpit, this droid is capable of storing up to ten hyperspace jumps and can also handle many in-flight operations, such as damage control, astrogation jumps, and flight performance adjustment. R4's are often used aswell, as an older model they are more numerous, less expensive and generally easier to obtain, however these droids are much less sophisticated than their R2 counterparts and can only store enough information for 1 hyperspace jump.

Han Antilles: Rogue Two<img src=" " align=left>
Droid manufacturing giant Industrial Automaton has all but cornered the astromech droid market with their immensely successful R-series. Started during the Republic, Industrial Automaton's foray into the astromech market began with the oversized prototype P2 series. While the P2 tested successfully on merchant ships, copyright issues tied up full-scale production of the series.
Instead, Industrial Automaton recycled body shells of their old Mark II reactor drones to produce the R1 series, a stopgap measure that allowed them to have a new droid on the market, and dodge any legal issues regarding the P2. The tall cylindrical R1 proved to be a success aboard larger vessels and capital ships and paved the way for the revolutionary R2.
The R2 was marketed as a "droid of all trades." Although designed specifically for deep-space repair and maintenance, the R2 could be modified to maintain a variety of equipment. Built-in navigation software allowed it to calculate and store hyperspace jump coordinates, a definite benefit for those consumers who own small starships with limited navicomputer capability. The New Republic employed astromech droids to enact in-flight repairs and increase the hyperspace range of their snubfighters.
Han's R2 unit, Blip, is an example of this droid of all trades. The blonde fighter pilot never leaves without him on solo missions, and is always one to aid him in a time of need aboard his snubfighter. Blip has now become more of a companion than a droid, nowadays. Blip is feisty, stubborn, and loudly whistles to attract Han when danger is nearby. It is rumoured that Blip's personality conflicts with other droids, especially Samantha Koortyn's astromech droid, Frak. It is also rumoured that Blip has a certain jealousy for Samantha as well, and annoys her at times with his constant hooting, whistling, and beeps, knowing she hates the sound of incessant droidspeak.
