Wookiees are widely recognized as one of the strongest and fiercest intelligent species in the galaxy. Wookiees have many customs and traditions that revolve around honor and loyalty, including the special bond called the honor family and the sacred pledge called the life debt. A Wookiee never uses his or her climbing claws in combat; doing this is considered dishonorable and a sign of madness.

Personality: Wookiees tend to be honorable, rash, loyal, and short-tempered.

Physical Description: Wookiees are large furry bipeds ranging in height from 2 to 2.3 meters.

Homeworld: The forest world of Kashyyyk

Language: Wookiees speak Shyriiwook, consisting of complex grunts and growls. They understand Basic but lack the ability to speak it.

Example Names: Chewbacca, Gorwooken, Groznik, Low-bacca, Ralrra, Rorworr, Salporin

Adventurers: Wookiee adventurers usually start out as wanderers or explorers, but some find this path by forming an honor family with (or owing a life debt to) other adventures.
