Wookiees are an anthropoid species native to the planet Kashyyyk. Wookiee directly translates into People of the Trees. Wookiees are tall, strong and covered by soft, thick fur making them very hardy. Most Wookiees have been stereotyped as being ferocious opponents, but loyal friends. The average member of this species grows to over two meters in height and has a much longer life expectancy than a human averaging out at around six hundred years. Wookiees also have impressive regenerative abilities that allow them to recover from injury at a remarkable rate.

As tree dwellers, Wookiees have wickedly curved claws that pop from hidden fingertip sheaths with the flex of a muscle. With the aid of these claws and their strong limbs, Wookiees can travel through the upper reaches of the great wroshyr trees of their home world, clinging to vines and branches with agile ease. While feared as opponents, Wookiees employ no obvious fighting style. They seem to simply charge forward, arms swinging, shattering whatever they hit with their huge, powerful fists. They also are known to use Ryyk Blades, which they are the creators of, to complement this style. Wookiees never use their claws in combat. They consider their claws tools, to use them in combat is considered a serious breach of the Wookiee code of honor. Wookiees who have used their claws in combat have been labeled as a "Mad Claw" and exiled.

Shyriiwook, the Wookiee language, is made up of grunts and growls. They can understand other languages, but their limited vocal ability makes it impossible for them to speak anything other than their own language. Most wookiees who have left their home planet have overcome this problem by using a translation droid. On Kashyyyk, Wookiees live in cities situated high within giant trees. Though they appear to be primitive in nature, they are quite comfortable with high technology, combining natural features with modern conveniences.

Wookiees have a primitive patriarchy with a complicated lineage structure, initiation rites, and a religion that rejects materialism. One of the most important Wookiee customs is Life Day, wherein extended Wookiee families gather and celebrate a day of joy and harmony, as promised by the Tree of Life. Even the Imperial blockade could not keep Wookiees from recognizing this most important day. Wookiees greatly value morality, courage, compassion and loyalty. A sacred and ancient Wookiee tradition is that of the honor family. An honor family comprises a Wookiee's closest friends and companions. These family members pledge a commitment to lay down their lives for one another, as well as members of any honor families these individuals may have. Like the similarly sacred Wookiee life debt, Wookiees extend this tradition to members outside their species. Sadly these life debts have caused trouble for some Wookiees. Some people do not respect the wookiee and abuse their life debts. This has led to some wookiees being enslaved by their own culture.
