Vader’s “no disintegrations” instruction to Fett in The Empire Strikes Back always implied the pair had history and sure enough, the Sith Lord hires the coolest bounty hunter in the galaxy to track down Luke Skywalker in the Darth Vader comic. Wedge Antilles
Luke Skywalker’s pilot chum ( and veteran of all three original movies) is a key player in Star Wars: Aftermath, where he finds more than he bargained for when his hunt for rogue Imperials uncovers a major plot to re- establish the organisation. Lobot
