Background

The Spice Mines of Kessel utilized slave labor, which was ignored by the ruling class. Slaves sent to Kessel frequently died, and the life expectancy of a slave was 2-3 years. In 10 BBY, a group of smugglers, including Han Solo, raided the mines of Kessel to find coaxium. In the process, a large amount of slaves were freed, and slavemaster Quay Tolsite was killed. Multiple slaves escaped the mines, and piled onto Han Solo's Millennium Falcon, escaping Kessel.
