Wookiees were a tall species of furry giants from planet Kashyyyk, who could grow to a height of two metres. Despite their fearsome appearance and volatile temperament, Wookiees were regarded as intelligent, sophisticated, loyal and trusting. When angered, Wookiees were known to descend into a berserker rage. Wookiees had a long lifespan, appearing not to age over a span of fifty years. One Wookiee, Lahgarra, lived healthily for centuries—the only distinction being her white fur. They could learn to understand other languages, like basic, but they were physically unable to speak them. To those who had not learned to understand Shyriiwook, the Wookiee language, it appeared they spoke in a series of growls and purrs. Although rare, it was possible for Wookiees to be born force sensitive, like the Jedi youngling, Gungi.

Wookiees originated on the Mid Rim forest planet of Kashyyyk. During the Clone Wars, the Wookiees fought alongside the Galactic Republic in several star systems. Towards the end of the conflict, Wookiee forces also defended their homeworld from a separatist invasion with the help of Republic forces led by Jedi Master Yoda. Following the establishment of the Galactic Empire, the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk was blockaded by the Empire. Many Wookiees were forced into slavery due to their strength, sent to be worked to death in the dangerous spice mines of the planet Kessell, or on construction sites such as the Death Star, though a number escaped this fate.

About fourteen years after the establishment of the Empire, the 212th Attack Battalion led by General Kahdah quelled a Wookiee revolt on Kashyyyk. Civilian travel to the planet was restricted and access was granted only for official government business.  Shortly later, the Empire transported several captives including  Wullffwarro and his son Kitwar to the spice mines of Kessel. The Specres, a rebel cell based on the  Outer Rim world of Lothal, rescured the prisoners and escaped Kessel.

Most Wookiees carried bowcasters as weaponry, which were handcrafted. The Wookiee people by and large hated Trandoshans, who were renowned as great hunters. The highest way a Wookiee could compliment someone was to groom them. In Wookiee society, loyalty and courage were valued as sacrosanct tenets.
