- "My allegiance is to the Corellian system alone."
- ―Sal Solo
Born on Corellia in the year 28 BBY, Solo was brought up in wealthy surroundings with his father, mother and older brother, Han. However, his mother died in an automobile accident when he was a young boy, an event which created a rift in the family that survived her.
Salvatore Solo was born on Corellia in the year 28 BBY to the archeologist Professor Jonash Solo and his wife Jaina. As a child, Solo was raised alongside his older brother Han in the family's ancestral home. He and his brother bonded with the family dog, whom was named Indiana by their parents. Solo also grew fond of photography at a young age.
He found himself frustrated in his romantic ambitions, however, as women often tended to think of him not on his own terms, but merely as Han Solo's brother.
Sal later attempted to pursue a career in the Imperial Navy, but Han's cashiering, smuggling career and fighting with the Rebellion thwarted his ambition, confining him to the Corellian sector. Nevertheless, Thrackan's ambition and his family connections enabled him to prosper in the Imperial administration, and when Daclif Gallamby became Diktat in 2 ABY, Thrackan was appointed as his deputy.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "Good job, Bria. Just like we planned."
- ―Sal Solo
Sal Solo was widely known for his Corellian nationalism and a proponent of the Corellian Independence cause. Though a fun loving boy in his early youth, his mother's abrupt death traumatized the entire family. His father never fully recovered and the household as a whole became more sullen, causing him to became angry and sad, which in turn helped to trigger he and his brother Han growing farther apart. This lead to him developing an aggressive and sometimes mean-spirited outlook that would characterize him later in life.
During his time in the Empire, Solo professed some degree of speciesism, though it was more akin to xenophobia and isolationism as his pro-Empire leanings had a limit.
Later on in life he was known for being unpopular with many family members, in particular his own brother. He nevertheless remained well loved by the people of Corellia.
Once in power, he would employ strong-arm tactics to get his way.
