Wookiee

Redirected from Wookie

A Wookiee is a member of a race of hairy bipeds in the Star Wars universe. Their homeworld is a forest world called Kashyyyk; it is covered with massive Wroshyr trees, in which the Wookiees construct their homes. Adult Wookiees are tall, in excess of two meters in height, and are covered with a uniform, mid-length coat of thick brown hair. Although they resemble the terrestrial Sasquatch, they are intelligent, have a varied culture, and are starfaring.

The most famous Wookiee is Chewbacca, a companion to Han Solo, who was killed while trying to save Solo's son, Anakin Solo, from a villain in the post-Empire novel Vector Prime by R.A. Salvatore[?]. His nephew, Lowbacca[?], plays an important role in the Young Jedi[?] series of novels.
