    We know that Han Solo was an orphan. (Star Wars and Peter Pan are alike, War caused many orphans)

    What if Han's parents were murdered by no one but his father-in-law, Darth Vader.

    We never what is Han's full reaction to the revelation that Leia is Luke's twin sister and that make her the Dark lord of the Sith's daughter. As we know, it also extremely difficult for Leia to accepted the truth and we've already witnessed some incredible emotion from Luke in the Empire Strike Back (no it's not true, it's impossible!) and I believe Leia will have the same conflict and confusion in her mind after the battle of Endor, possibly, much worst than Luke because she's has grown up fighting the man who happened to be her own father.

    To make things more complicated, how about Han revealed the truth that Darth Vader is actually the one behind his parents' death, and he, Han Solo, married a daughter of 'the author of all his pain'. That's really tragic. This make Han feel extremely uncomfortable when Leia want to send his son, Ben to train with the Jedi master Luke, because he see the shadow of Vader in his son and that make him estrange from Ben.

    He tried to be a good father, but he failed. While Leia was always on Ben's side, Han and Chewie usually find some reasons to be busy with the missions and then not only he has become a bad father, but a careless husband too.

    Han thought everything would be back to status quo when Leia sent Ben to train with luke, although he completely disagreed, but that's just a recipe of a disaster.

    This could be a dumb theory or a bad fan-fiction. However, if Han Solo's orphanage was created at the hand of young and furious Darth Vader, his future father-in-law. That would make Han Solo's spin-off a movie that give a deeper dimension to the most beloved character in Star Wars, not just a fun, another 'Origin' film.

    What's your ideas?

    Interesting. But when would Han have found out the truth that Vader murdered his parents? Before or after ANH? If before, and he knew it the entire time I don't think Han showed enough anger towards Vader. Remember he didn't even want to fight. He just wanted his reward and wanted to continue being Han. Throughout the OT Han never really did show he wanted any revenge and for the Han Solo character to have his parents murdered by Vader.... well Han would have been more ambitious in wanting to hunt down Vader imo.

    So if your theory wants to hold weight Han would have had to of found out after ROTJ. But how? Who would tell him and who alive would know? It's an interesting idea but I can't say I have an opinion on how it could be done correctly to satisfy me.

    I believe that having Darth Vader kill Han's parents would be a case of shrinking the universe. Not everyone has to be connected to another character somehow. If Han is an orphan, I believe it's more likely his parents died in the Clone Wars.

    I think it would be cooler to see Vader have his parents held hostage similar to Ezra's parents and he has clone troopers kill his parents in front of Han and let's Han go out of compassion or sends him to work with a The Wookie Slaves .

    Vader was probably the author of many stories of destruction and devastation. It may be that the young Han never really knew exactly what happened, especially if it was complicated in some way. For example, he may have been told his parents were killed by Stormtroopers, and as a young person that would have been enough of a reason. All he knows is he has to make his own way in the world, by any means possible.

    However, as a person gets older, they start to ask- why? What really went on? Especially when he has his own family, it becomes more interesting and urgent to find out what the family history is in order to pass it down to his heirs. At that point, Han may well have discovered that it was a direct order by Darth Vader that resulted in his parents' death.

    Luke didn't find out about his own father until he was an adult. There are many real-life family stories just like that. Secrets can stay hidden from children, but when people become adult they start to question things. And the truth eventually comes out. I'm the unofficial genealogist for my family, and believe me, there's a lot that people don't know, and maybe don't want to know, in every family tree.

    So if Darth Vader really is responsible for Han's parents' deaths, it would certainly be believable to me.
