In the galaxy far, far away, a revelation about one of Star Wars’ beloved characters has sent fans into a frenzy.
Lando Calrissian, the suave gambler and ally to the Rebel Alliance, now has a full name: Landonis Balthazar Calrissian III.
This detail, previously hidden, emerged in “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” on his cane topper, inscribed in Aurebesh, the Star Wars alphabet. For years, fans had speculated about Lando’s backstory, and this confirmation adds depth to his character.
The inclusion of “III” hints at a familial legacy, suggesting that Lando’s charm and charisma may have been inherited through generations.
What rank is Lando Calrissian?
In the vast galaxy of Star Wars lore, Lando Calrissian’s military standing fluctuates with the storyline’s evolution.
In the Original Trilogy, prior to “Return of the Jedi,” Lando’s allegiance to the Rebel Alliance lacked an official rank.
However, during the events of “Return of the Jedi,” he ascended to the esteemed position of General, acknowledging his pivotal role alongside Han Solo in bolstering the Rebellion, notably at the Battle of Taanab.
In subsequent narratives within the Legends universe, Lando’s military trajectory persisted, culminating in his attainment of the distinguished title of Supreme Commander within the New Republic.
Conversely, in the Canon realm, details regarding Lando’s post-Original Trilogy military involvement remain sparse, with no explicit depiction of any formal rank.
