"The Wookiees, although primitive compared to us, are surprisingly capable warriors. They're pretty
strong, and pick up combat techniques pretty quickly."
The Wookiees, whose name for themselves translated to the People of the Trees, were a species of
tall, hairy humanoids that were inhabitants of the planet Kashyyyk. One of the most noteworthy
members of the species was Chewbacca,
Han Solo's best friend and co-pilot, who played a vital role in the Galactic Civil War and afterwards. A
race of arboreal mammals, the Wookiees lived in treehouses nestled in the canopy of the towering
wroshyr trees. Despite their fearsome appearance, they were usually gentle, although they were
prone to devastating fits of rage when provoked.
