Kashyyyk is the Wookiee homeworld, covered in dense forest. While Wookiees build their homes in the planet's trees, they are not a primitive species, and Kashyyyk architecture incorporates sophisticated technology. One of the last battles of the Clone Wars was fought here under the leadership of Yoda, with Wookiees and clones battling the Separatist droid army -- until the Emperor issued Order 66, commanding the clones to slaughter all Jedi. Yoda survived, however, with the help of natives Chewbacca and Tarfful, who used a hidden shuttle to evacuate the Jedi Master from the planet.
Captain Merumeru was a Wookiee chieftain that led a group of Wookiee warriors into battle against the Separatists on Kashyyyk. Leading the charge with a roar, he fought valiantly on the beaches at the battle of Kachirho City alongside his Wookiees and Clone Soldiers of the Republic in the hours leading up to Order 66.
A massive Wookiee general, Tarfful helped defend his native Kashyyyk during the Clone Wars. A distress signal brought Tarfful and his most trusted warriors rushing to Chewbacca's help against the hated Trandoshans on the hunting grounds of Wasskah. Later, Tarfful and Chewbacca fought side by side with General Yoda on the battlegrounds of Kashyyyk.
During his long life Chewbacca has been many things: Wookiee warrior, ace smuggler and rebel hero. Chewie fought with the Republic on Kashyyyk during the Clone Wars, then befriended Han Solo while in Imperial captivity on Mimban. After adventures on Vandor and Kessel, he became Han’s co-pilot aboard the Millennium Falcon, and eventually helped the Alliance restore freedom to the galaxy. Known for his short temper and accuracy with a bowcaster, Chewie also had a big heart – and unflagging loyalty to his friends. He stuck with Han through years of turmoil, and flew the Falcon alongside Rey after the Corellian’s death.
With a massive central tread, the NR-N99 Persuader-class tank droid is the favored tank of the Corporate Alliance. Manufactured by the Techno Union, they were fast, well-armored, were well-suited to a variety of terrain, and had significant firepower. One enterprising young wookiee managed to destroy one with an explosive charge in one of the final battles of the Clone Wars on Kashyyyk.
