A mighty Wookiee warrior from the planet Kashyyyk, Chewbacca is over 200 hundred years old, and is completely covered in fur. He communicates with grunts, growls, and roars. Chewbacca is loyal and is very protective of his friends. Rescued from slavery by Han Solo, he swore loyalty to him, became his best friend and co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon. Chewbacca is also a mechanic, he spends a lot of time repairing and upgrading the Falcon and damaged droids. Chewbacca is perhaps the best known free Wookiee, since he was instrumental in the defeat of the Empire, and the eventual liberation of his people.
