Subj: Lando Calrissian opportunistic traitor or hero?

So they arrive at Cloud City and Lando puts on a very enthusiastic welcome to Han that has Leia suspicious.
They soon lose sight of Threepio and later he's found in pieces.
Leia's instincts are telling her to not trust Lando.
Soon after Lando reveals he cut a deal with Vader to keep the city safe from the Empire.
Lando is soon on the receiving end of Vader altering the deal and that for the good of the city he has to accept it.
Lando then frees them and uncuffs Chewbacca (not the brightest move to uncuff a Wookie that wants to kill you!)
He leads them to the landing area where Fett is but its too late.
He orders the city to evacuate, helps them get to the Falcon, they save Luke and leave and Artoo restores the hyperdrive.
Lando aids them in saving Han, nearly becoming Sarlaac food in the process.
Lando then leads the attack on the Death Star and Imperial Fleet and helps nuke the thing and barely flies out in time.
So all in all I'd say he is a hero, a bit of a scoundrel and a businessman.
In his defense in Empire Strikes Back, when Darth vader arrives with his Super Star Destroyer which contains a legion of Storm Troopers and an Armada of Tie Fighters, plus he has Boba Fett with him and tells you that he wants to make a deal with you......
Lando was quite literally at both gun and saber point when he made that deal and he WAS trying to save the City and its people not just his own skin.
