Old Republic : Battle of Kashyyyk
Kashyyyk is the lush and heavily forested home world of the Wookies. It is located in the in the mid rim cluster star system– the same system as the Trandosha.
The Trandoshans are a reptile-like humanoid creature. They are opportunists with not true loyalty to any particular clan. Once they have reached adulthood, many Trandoshans work as bounty hunters, mercenaries or slavers across the galaxy. This has caused a bitter blood feud and conflict between these neighboring species. Upon the arrival of the architects of the Star Forge, they discovered the Wookies as a noble and proud race. They were keenly adapted to their arboreal life building great cities among the trees.
By their nature, the Wookies are builders. They were able to reverse engineer star thrusters and join many other species among the stars. Because of their size and brute strength they have frequently been targets of slavers. Generations of Wookies have morphed from a tranquil tree dwelling race to a fierce warrior clan. They have legendary gladiatorial ritual combat for younglings to be accepted as adults in the Wookie clans.
The first battle of Kashyyyk began with the invasion of the SITH forces alongside Trandoshan slavers and mercenaries. They hoped to not only strip the planet of important mineral resources, but to use the Wookies as labor to build a base of operations in the mid rim, putting them ever closer to the ancient capital of Coruscant. They didn’t expect the Wookies to fight back. A cry for help rung out from Kashyyyk and the Jedi have answered. Now many months into this conflict the first of the Jedi and Galactic Republic troops have begun to arrive.
