Movie Character – Chewbacca – Expanded

Chewbacca

Chewbacca, in his own tribute comic book by Dark Horse. This was a mini series of 4 issues.

Chewbacca the wookiee was of the village,  Rwookrrorro. His family included  his father, Attichicuk, a sister, Kallabow, nephew, Lowbacca, and eventually a wife named Mallatobuck and son named Lumpawarrump.

Chewbacca lived through the Clone Wars as well as the Rebellion. During his early years he was adventurous and brave, battling would be slavers on his home world. Eventually he left home and was captured by Trandoshan’s, and released for the Great Hunt. This was a mistake on the trandoshan’s part, as it led to meeting with Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker’s jedi apprentice who had also been captured. They, with the others taken for the Hunt, turned the tide and escaped.

By the end of the Clone Wars when his world was invaded, he returned to fight, but not, apparently to his home village, and fought alongside old friends like Tarfful. During this time the Clones turned on the Jedi and he helped Yoda escaped.

He fought the Empire in his own way for a time, freeing the young captive wookiees enslaved even if they were from rival tribes. When captured himself, he urged them to rise up together to fight. When the Empire arrived, all were gone. The soldier finding him refused to kill him on direct orders….more than once, even after he was put on a slave detail. That soldier was Han Solo, who lost his career over it. Chewbacca felt he owed him a life debt and over time the two became partners and confidants. Chewbacca was his co pilot even before he won the Millenium Falcon.

‘Chewie’ helped Han in his smuggling career, often acting as his conscience.  Eventually he made his way home of a visit and proposed marriage to his old flame, Mallatobuck, in traditional wookiee fashion. She accepted. Afterward he went back to adventuring with Han, but in the meantime he had a son, Lumpawarrump. His father, Attichicuk, looked after them.

Chewbacca went on to help the Rebellion with Han and after Han and Leia were married and had children, he was often time both body guard and baby sitter. For him, nothing was more important than family, both his and Han’s.  His own nephew was trained as a Jedi.

He stretched out farther into the Force, touching Tahiri again. She was in a dark place and he felt pain, or the fading of pain. He couldn’t tell where.
“Anakin”
That startled him. His name rang like a H’kig chime, nothing fuzzy about it.
“I’m coming Tahiri,” He whispered.
“Anakin”…but the sense of the words dissolved into emotion. Fear, grief, hope. Wordlessly he reached for her, to give her the equivalent of the squeeze on the hand, and found himself instead in a tight, desperate embrace.
“I’ll find you,” he projected to her. “Just hang on.”NJO-Edge of Victory I by Greg Keyes
