Shaggy giants from an arboreal world, the tall and commanding Wookiee species is an impressive sight to even the most jaded spacer. Despite their fearsome and savage countenance, Wookiees are intelligent, sophisticated, loyal and trusting. Loyalty and bravery are near-sacred tenets in Wookiee society. When peaceful, Wookiees are tender and gentle. Their tempers, however, are short; when angered, Wookiees can fly into a berserker rage and will not stop until the object of their distemper is sufficiently destroyed.
The White Worms’ lair is a long-abandoned water-processing plant in an industrial area of Coronet City. A maze of tunnels leads to the surface; at their heart is a central cistern with blacked-out windows that protect the Grindalids from the damaging rays of Corellia’s sun. Here, Lady Proxima holds court over her scrumrats.
One of Corellia’s many criminal gangs, the White Worms form the backbone of the black market in the coastal city of Coronet. Their lair is an abandoned water-processing plant, guarded by an army of urchins and scavengers known as the scrumrats. The scrumrats are ruled by a small number of Grindalids, led by the White Worm matriarch, Lady Proxima.
An unspoiled frontier world with soaring mountains and endless plains, Vandor is sparsely settled and lacking the technological infrastructure common on other planets. But Vandor’s days as a refuge from the hurly-burly of galactic civilization are numbered: the Empire has a growing presence on the planet.
A native of Glee Anselm, Tobias Beckett is a professional thief who’s planned and carried out any number of heists with his crew. Beckett is always aware of the angles and uncertainties – and ready to unholster his blasters if something goes wrong. That’s always a possibility -- Beckett has learned the hard way that trust has its limits.
A rude, timber-framed hall adorned with animal heads, the Lodge serves the rough-and-tumble settlement of Fort Ypso as saloon, gambling hall, droid-fighting arena and hostel all in one. Adventurous scouts plan explorations at the bar, gamblers seek to reverse their fortunes at the sabacc table, and shadowed alcoves are perfect for conducting illicit business.
A pump-action scatter blaster rifle made by Merr-Sonn Munitions, the SX-21 proved valuable to Imperial mudtroopers in the tough fighting against Mimban’s native insurgents. When he escaped Imperial captivity, Chewbacca used an SX-21 as a temporary substitute for the bowcaster favored by Wookiee warriors.
Swoops are repulsorlift vehicles that are more powerful (and dangerous) than speeder bikes. Swoop racing is a popular spectator sport on many planets, with fans loving the sport’s excitement as well as its outlaw image. During his search for his mother on Tatooine, Anakin Skywalker borrowed a swoop from Owen Lars. Later, Hondo Ohnaka’s pirates used swoops to patrol their territory on Florrum.
