Beyond the old Time Tales page which is now outdated, I've never really seen any extensive compilation of the Skywalker-Solo family and their relatives, whether authentic or alleged. I'd like to open up discussion about the family tree of the main characters that aims to be as comprehensive and as inclusive as possible. Like real genealogy I want to not only construct a lineage, but keep track of important dates and details to construct a plausible life history for everyone. I'd like to start with the Solo family, up until the birth of Han. I recently got to reread The Courtship of Princess Leia by Dave Wolverton, famous (or infamous) for starting the whole situation surrounding Han's ancestry. As an aside, I'm surprised that for as big a deal it would seem to be in regards to revealing Han's origin, the book doesn't really focus on it at all. "Birth records indicate that Han's paternal ancestry goes back to Berethron e Solo, who introduced democracy in the Corellian empire. You can easily track the birthright for the next six generations, to Korol Solo, but records from Korol's period were destroyed in the Clone Wars and the lineage became lost. But Korol Solo married and fathered his first son on Duro nearly sixty years ago, and because of the wars and turmoil, that son never returned home. His name was Dalla Solo, but he changed his name to Dalla Suul to hide his identity during the Clone Wars. His firstborn son was Jonash Suul, and the first son of Jonash Suul was named Han Suul--who changed his name back to Han Solo." -C-3PO, p. 73 Interestingly, this passage opens the possibility of Han having siblings: he's the "first son" of Jonash Suul, not the only son. What's frustrating about this passage is that, even at the time of writing this novel, the timeline didn't really line up. Han was thirty-seven at the time of this novel and his grandfather was stated to have been born "nearly" 60 years prior to that. 52 BBY is a more fitting date for the birth of Han's father rather than his grandfather. I've seen differing explanations for this: that Corellia's year is longer than a standard year is generally accepted (although according to the 2009 Essential Atlas, that's false,) but the length of that year is still under question. In the same passage Threepio also states that Han has tampered with the records, so it could be that he changed the dates to make his lineage seem implausible. Also in Courtship do we learn that Threkin Horm is the grandson of Dalla Solo, meaning that he and Han are first cousins. Dalla has had at least three children, unless Tiion Sal-Solo is Threkin's mother in addition to Thrackan's--unlikely, but I am just now noticing the name similarities. The Paradise Snare by A.C. Crispin takes the information given in Courtship and the Corellian Trilogy and expands a little bit upon it, but to serve the narrative Han's ancestry still largely remains a mystery. On page 42, the same information from Courtship is reinforced: three centuries ago lived Berethron e Solo, who abdicated the throne. Korol Solo made a claim to it and died, but not before fathering Dalla the Black, infamous pirate and still active well into Han's adult life. On the same page, The Paradise Snare also introduces us to the agoraphobic Tiion Sal-Solo, mother of Thrackan Sal-Solo of the Corellian Trilogy. Everything about her interactions with Han points toward a tragic backstory for her and her family. "Mom doesn't like people. She's like her grandfather, won't have any human servants, just droids. She says humans betray and kill each other and droids never do." -Thrackan, p. 47 Logically if Korol is the great-grandfather of Han and Thrackan then Thrackan must be referring to Tiion's maternal grandfather; Korol died long before Thrackan showed up. "Tiion Sal-Solo's gaze traveled to Han's face, and her eyes widened in distress. She stared at the boy in horror. Her mouth worked, and a thin, shrill mewling sound emerged. 'No... no!' she cried. Tears gathered in her brown eyes and coursed down the flabby cheeks. 'No, it isn't possible! He's gone! They're both gone!'" p. 47-48 On page 50, Han forces Thrackan to say everything he knows about their family history. Thrackan's grandparents are given as Denn Solo and Tira Gama Solo, colonists of Tralus. Tira gave birth to twins during a pirate raid on the colony; she took the daughter, Tiion, and fled for the hills. Denn, meanwhile, took the male twin when separated and was never seen again. Tira's father, the elder Gama, is referenced again. He had all the droids mindwiped hoping that Tira would start a new life on Corellia. Tiion married Randil Sal and had her nightmare child, and the rest is history. A lot of debate has been over the identity of Han's grandfather, either Dalla Suul or Denn Solo. I think that Dalla "Denn" Solo may have been his birth name and he later went by Dalla Suul the Black after joining the pirates--presumably the pirates that raided Tralus. As it turns out, Dalla was apparently more fit for piracy than life on a colony world. There's even less known information on Han's father Jonash than there is on the rest of the family. All we can conclusively say is that he was born Jonash Suul (Dalla must have changed his name very quickly, probably to avoid association with his father Korol) and eventually married a woman named Jaina, if the Tales story "Routine" is taken as canon. How Han later learned the names of his parents has never been explained, but Threepio's research indicates that public birth records do exist for the Solos. Han was orphaned by the age of seven or so at a spaceport in Coronet. If I could speculate for a minute, I think Garris Shrike had at one point worked for Dalla the Black. This is why he was looking for Han at the spaceport: Shrike probably knew Dalla, Jonash, and/or Jaina personally and was hired to recover the boy. Of course that didn't really interest him, and as we see Shrike runs a pathetic piracy/theft operation of his own at the start of The Paradise Snare. Holding captive the heir to Dalla's criminal empire, Garris Shrike probably saw himself as untouchable. The only other person who appears to have known Han or his family was Dewlanna, the wookiee chef aboard Shrike's ship. My last notes on the Solo family concern their ancestry going back into ancient times: Berethron's royal family appeared to have been in power from 3017 to 312 BBY and possibly earlier, as indicated by the prince-admiral Jonash e Solo present for the Seventeenth Alsakan Conflict. There is no indication that a Solo was present for the founding of the Republic, but if Supernatural Encounters is anything to go by, then the progenitors of the Corellian people are apparently confirmed (at least within Arhul Hextrophon's narrative) as Paxton Solo and Antonia Corelli, originally from Alien Exodus. If I've made any mistakes or left out any possible Solos, Sals, Horms, or Gamas from Han's generation or prior, please let me know!
