This article is about the species. For a list of Wookiees, see Category: Wookiees.
Wookiees are a race of tall, strong, furry humanoids from planet Kashyyyk that have been said to resemble walking carpets. Unable to form sophisticated noises, they communicate with grunts, growls and groans that compose languages such as Shyriiwook, Thykarann, and Xaczik. These languages are very difficult for others to understand, but they can also get their point across by ripping arms out of sockets.
Despite their formidable strength, Wookiees tend to be very peaceful and live in harmony with nature. Naturally, this makes them favored targets of the Trandoshans, who enjoy hunting and killing them for their pelts.
