The Book of Hondo was the infamous autobiography of the pirate Hondo Ohnaka. The Weequay's description of his work was:
“You get three texts in one, my friends! A pirate rulebook, a life advice source, and the autobiography of me! What more could one ask for? Besides having my good looks, of course.”
The volume tripled in use, as it contained Ohnaka's spins on the pirate code, some of his personal life stories, and various, random "Hondo-isms."
One of the pirate bylaws contained in the book gave Ohnaka's view on how a captain should punish a crewmember caught stealing:
"Pirate bylaw #164: If any member of the crew is caught stealing from the captain, the punishment is to be twelve lashes by the nine-tailed-nexu. And if he is not caught, well, good for him."
Behind the scenes Edit
The Book of Hondo is first mentioned in the Star Wars canon short story "The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku." It made a Famfic appearance in the third chapter of The Crimson Corsair by CrimsonCorsair, where it was given further exploration.
