Willrow Hood was a Human male miner who lived and worked on Cloud City, a floating station located above the gas giant Bespin. He worked for A’roFilter, a mining company sympathetic to the Alliance to Restore the Republic, as the head of the department responsible for dealing with the Rebel Alliance, supplying discounted Tibanna gas. Eventually, though, the Galactic Empire invaded and conquered the planet; in order to protect the Rebellion contacts Hood was responsible for, the miner took A’roFilter’s main computer’s memory core, as it contained the encrypted information on Rebel contacts. After finding the nearest disposal unit, Hood dumped the entire core, rather than risk it falling into the wrong hands; thus, Willrow Hood was able to save the Alliance’s interests. Hood remained on Cloud City throughout the Imperial occupation, suffering imprisonment and torture but revealing nothing.

Natural hair color need to be a similar style seen on the character, specifically, ears must be exposed, hair is a men’s cut, sideburns are long but not bushy – no mutton-chops, and mustache is thin, narrow with a slight curve down at the ends. Wigs (and fake mustaches/sideburns) are permitted, but must appear natural. It is preferred that the costumer have no beard, however, a five o’clock shadow is ok, and beards if short, neatly trimmed, and that do not detract from the overall look, may be approved.
Either the photo on the action figure package or the movie figure may be used for reference to hairstyle.
To all Costumers: This is for the actual character Willrow Hood, not the “novelty” version. Please pay special attention to the hair style and mustache as Elvis, pompadour, and other bushy hair styles and oversized mustaches will not be approved.
