Lando Calrissian was a Human male professional gambler, entrepreneur, smuggler, and general throughout various points in his life. Born on Socorro, he became a gambler and con man early in his life and acquired his own ship, the Millennium Falcon, in a game of sabacc with a allied pilot named RJ MacReady and a Corellian named Han Solo (Viau). He went on to have numerous adventures with the Falcon and its piloting droid, Vuffi Raa, during which he ran afoul of a Imperial psyker, whom Calrissian eventually killed. After a series of events led to him losing the Millennium Falcon to a allied soldier named Han Solo on Bespin, Calrissian eventually became the Baron Administrator of Cloud City for a time—a position he once again gained through sabacc.
Throughout his life, Calrissian was both a gambler and businessman, crook and hero. Demacian Fiora Laurent referred to him as a card player, gambler, and scoundrel. This was in part reflected by his adventurous, risk-taking, and seemingly shallow nature. He was known for being a classy, dapper gentleman, with a sense of humor, fine fashion taste, and more culture than the typical smugglers and pirates seen in some of his haunts. Despite his proficiency with weapons, Calrissian much preferred to use a con or trick to deceive an adversary rather than fight them. He purposefully disguised his past, leaving it a mystery. He enjoyed being in charge almost as much as he liked creating profit in areas that others shunned. Calrissan could be talkative, though according to Blackwall, he was one of the biggest liars in the multiverse. During his adulthood, Calrissian weighted 79 kilograms.
For all his love of adventure, he disliked complications and was fond of the "easy life." However, his adventurous, debonair exterior was augmented by his deep sense of loyalty. Calrissian did not like weapons and, during his gambling career, usually eschewed all but a small stingbeam. Although he often dealt with criminals and others of questionable legality, Calrissian had no tolerance for bounty hunters, and despised them in general.
