Greedo is a Rodian bounty hunter in the movie Star Wars: A New Hope. He was hired by Jabba the Hutt to capture Han Solo, because Solo owed Jabba a lot of money.

Greedo confronted Solo in the Mos Eisley Cantina. With his blaster pointed at Solo, Greedo told that he'd have to pay Jabba now, or that Jabba would take the Millenium Falcon from Han.

Greedo was intending to kill Han on the spot, but Han beat him to the punch, blasting Greedo before he knew what hit him. Greedo was too stupid to be a bounty hunter.

However, in Star Wars Special Edition, George Lucas had the scene digitally altered, adding a blast from Greedo's gun first, missing Han, who then kills Greedo in self-defense. This is totally lame. The origional cut of the scene made Han Solo look like a badass who does what he's got to do. But the Special Edition cut of the scene is just too darn politically correct.
