Relations: Coruscant
Known Facts (2)
Summary
As soon as Xizor's Palace on Coruscant was destroyed by Lando's thermal detonator, Dash Rendar, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian fled the building in the Millennium Falcon. Dash transferred to the Outrider, and Rogue Squadron came out of hyperspace due to a distress signal sent by Leebo. Three rebel pilots were killed, and Black Sun was gaining an advantage. Darth Vader, in the Executor, came around Coruscant with two Star Destroyers and deployed squadrons of TIE fighters and ordered his fleet to attack Xizor's personal navy. Xizor, outraged, asked what was going on, but instead, Darth Vader gave Xizor two minutes to surrender or be killed. Xizor defiantly ignored Vader's ultimatum and the skyhook was destroyed by the Executor's turbolasers, violently exploding and killing everyone on board. Dash Rendar appeared to be killed when the Outrider was hit by debris from the explosion, but this was a trick, and he survived the battle. He left the Alliance afterward.
