|“||Wrong again, Solo. It's over for you.||„|
|~ Tasu Leech confronts Han Solo.|
Tasu Leech is a minor antagonist in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He is a criminal and the leader of the Kanjiklub. He has had previous dealings with Han Solo but now holds a grudge against him when he learns that Solo intended to swindle him, much like Bala-Tik.
He was portrayed by Indonesian actor Yayan Ruhian.
Leech refused to speak a word of Galactic Basic, considering it a "soft language for soft people." Tasu Leech had defeated many would-be usurpers to his command, as the Kanjiklub tradition went that the leader may be challenged to combat by his underlings, for control of the position. He wielded a "Huttsplitter" blaster rifle, custom made by his lieutenant, Razoo Qin-Fee. The Huttsplitter earned its name due to the history of the Kanjiklub's home planet, Nar Kanji, that used to be subjugated by the Hutts. The human colonists later overthrew the Hutt Cartel, and struck out on their own. Tasu Leech wore lightweight armor, and a plastoid blast jerkin.
Tasu teamed with Bala-Tik of the Guavian Death Gang to track down Han Solo aboard his freighter, the Eravana, when he learned that Solo intended to swindle both factions after Solo borrowed a large number of credits from the Guavians following a job where he was to acquire rathtars for King Prana. Before he can take down Solo, the rathtars are released, and several of Tasu's associates are devoured by them. Tasu himself is able to briefly fight off one of the rathtars before running away.
It is unknown whether or not he actually survived the battle against the rathtars after he is last seen, as he does not appear in the movie again after Han, Finn, and Rey escape.
