Dengar, a native of Corellia, is a character that originated from the Star Wars universe. His appearances spanned across films, novels, comic books, and video games, but his character is most recognized from his appearance in "Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back". An accomplished bounty hunter, Dengar was noted for his ruthlessness and aggression.

While working for crimelords, including Jabba the Hutt, Dengar crossed paths with numerous notable characters in the Star Wars universe. His hardened exterior and standoffish demeanour made him unapproachable, inspiring both fear and respect. Dengar had significant injuries, leading to heavy cybernetic modification, which further underscored his fearsome presence. His impaired emotional capacity and apparent lack of empathy were the result of these modifications.

Though he started his career as a gladiator, Dengar eventually found his real passion in bounty-hunting. He quickly became one of the galaxy's most lethal marksmen, gaining a reputation for both grit and tenacity. Alongside fellow hunters Boba Fett, Bossk, and others, he was included in Darth Vader's squad of bounty hunters - demonstrating his standing and competence in his field.

Dengar flew a punishing one, a JumpMaster 5000 which was heavily modified from its original design. This starship was purposefully built for his career as a bounty hunter and was complete with advanced weaponry and sensors, making it a formidable asset in his many pursuits and confrontations.

One of Dengar's significant feats was his role in the rescue of Boba Fett from the stomach of the Sarlacc. This heroic act established a strong bond between the two bounty hunters. In the world of Star Wars, Dengar has remained an enduring and popular character - encapsulating the dangerous and cutthroat life of bounty hunting across the galaxy.

Lastly, Dengar's distinctive appearance, often seen wrapped in turban-style bandages and wearing battered armour, is immediately recognizable to Star Wars fans. Though he might not be as iconic as characters like Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker, Dengar's contributions to the Star Wars universe have left an indelible mark, making him a character to be remembered.
