Wookiee Warrior (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|—Chewbacca, Wookiee Warrior.|
Wookiees are rather large humanoids, completely covered with fur. Most of the time, their fur is brown but in rare cases it can be black or even white. Wookiees are also quite taller than most humanoids, ranging from 7 to 8 feet tall. Despite their large figure, Wookiees are just as agile as the average human, being able to swing on vines without breaking them. with fur covering their entire body, Wookiees tend not to wear any clothing other than a backpack or extra ammunition. Wookiee warriors tend to be a little taller, their height ranging from 9 to 10 feet. They are also much heavier as they have a lot more muscle.
Wookiees originated on the Mid Rim forest planet of Kashyyyk. In the ancient past, they invented and crafted weapons that fired poisoned darts and arrows. During the Clone Wars and the reign of King Grakchawwaa, the Wookiees remained fiercely loyal to the Galactic Republic and fought alongside them in several star systems. Towards the end of the conflict, Wookiee forces also defended their homeworld from a Separatist invasion with the help of Galactic Republic forces led by Jedi Master Yoda, who had good relations with them.
Wookiees are sophisticated and intelligent, and they live among the treetops of Kashyyyk. They tend to live in a traditional clan system, complete with a chief that oversees it. Wookiees are incredibly violent creatures and are often pulled toward chaotic alignments. Because this, brawls and fights among both male and female Wookiees are common.
Wookiee warriors are feared throughout the galaxy for their strength and intelligence in combat. Their powerful figures also come into play with how they act during combat, as most Wookiees prefer to wield heavy weaponry. Because of this, an absence of shields in melee combat is prevalent throughout Wookiee military. In terms of ranged weaponry, crossbows are a popular choice for Wookiees because they are one of the few races that can wield them with ease, and the extra punch they have over bows becomes useful in tight situations.
