Description: Attichitcuk (meaning "first heroic companion" in Shyriiwook), known as "Itchy" for short, was an influential male Wookiee Chieftain who lived during the last centuries of the Galactic Republic. He sired two pups, a female named Kallabow and a male named Chewbacca, the latter of whom became a fabled hero of the Rebel Alliance that fought the authoritarian Galactic Empire. A supportive father, Attichitcuk had allowed his only son to leave the household to travel all over the galaxy in search of adventure around the year 150 BBY. In his prime, Attichitcuk played a leading role on his homeworld of Kashyyyk, a planet covered in immense forests. It was he who represented his Wookiee brethren in the Galactic Republic negotiations for colonization rights to Alaris Prime, a moon of the gas giant Alaris. With the help of both his son and the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, the chieftain drove out invasion forces of the Trade Federation that occupied Alaris Prime illegally.
When the Clone Wars broke out in 22 BBY, Attichitcuk was already an old, retired warrior, but he still joined in at least one fight. When the Confederacy of Independent Systems invaded Kashyyyk toward the end of the three-year conflict, Attichitcuk engaged in combat along his fellow warriors and the Republic forces led by the Jedi Master Yoda. That event, known to future generations as the Battle of Kashyyyk, was one of the last conflicts fought during the Clone Wars. The Republic fell apart shortly afterwards and was replaced by the Galactic Empire, an autocratic regime led with an iron fist by Emperor Palpatine. Following the new government's xenocentrist policies, the Wookiees were enslaved. Attichitcuk, however, was left behind on Kashyyyk while his son Chewbacca was still traveling offworld. Living with his daughter-in-law Mallatobuck, the old Wookiee focused on raising his grandson Lumpawarrump.
Nearly two decades later, in 1 ABY, the Empire enacted a blockade on Kashyyyk. On Life Day, a most sacred family holiday, the former Chieftain Attichitcuk and his family were visited by Imperials who were investigating for ties between the Wookiees and the Rebel Alliance. Three years afterwards, the gray Wookiee was captured by Nagai slaver Ozrei N'takkilomandrife, but was subsequently freed by Chewbacca and his Human partner Han Solo. A few months later that same year, Kashyyyk was taken over once again when the Imperial Moff Darcc combined forces with the Trandoshan slaver Pekt. Attichitcuk shouldered the responsibility of calling Chewbacca and his Rebel allies for help, but he was kidnapped by the Trandoshan, who planned on having him skinned. One more time, Chewbacca and Solo saved Attichitcuk from certain death. In his late years, Attichitcuk had become an elder statesman retired to his family treehouse in the city of Rwookrrorro, enjoying his wood carving and the company of his kin.
Personality and traits
In his prime, Attichitcuk was a brown Wookiee with a squat face, brown irises, a broad nose and a wide stature. He used to be tall like all members of his race, but he gradually shrank over the years, a common phenomenon in older Wookiees. When his son's relationship with Mallatobuck started, Attichitcuk's shoulders had already begun to stoop forward. By then, the chief was one head shorter than Chewbacca, but still retained the brown color of his fur. However, one year after the start of the Clone Wars, Attichitcuk had gone entirely gray.
Like other members of his species, including his fellow chieftain Tarfful, Attichitcuk used to style his facial hair into long braids when he was young. In the height of the Galactic Civil War, Attichitcuk appeared as a large, white-haired and stooped Wookiee, measuring only 1.73 meters-much shorter than the average 2.2 meters of a healthy Wookiee adult. He had also lost all of his fangs, which had caused his jaws to decrease in size.
Although he tended to be extremely irritable and gruff, the former chief had genuine attachment to the members of his little family. Despite their great complicity, Attichitcuk would never spoil his grandson, neither would he go against the authority of Mallatobuck. He was immensely proud of his son Chewbacca, whom he saw as an almighty warrior. When the old chieftain had to bury his own child, he was grief-stricken and refused to admit the circumstances of Chewbacca's death. Attichicuk was also very modest, as he would not boast about the impressive hunting prowesses of his youth.
In addition to being drawn to females of his own species, the old Wookiee also had an attraction for Human women, as exemplified by his excitement when seeing Mermeia's alluring image in his mind evaporator. His attraction, and using the mind evaporator was a common enough occurance that neither Lumpawaroo nor Mallatobuck commented on the situation. In his old age, Attichitcuk also liked to smoke a pipe.
Skills and abilities
t his peak, Attichitcuk was a skilled warrior and hunter, capable of slaying twenty ferocious katarns on his own. Thanks to his training with a mind evaporator, he was also a highly accurate grenade thrower, even in his old age. He also displayed crafting talents, a common cultural trait of the Wookiees due to their dexterous hands. Attichitcuk would carve wood, making small-scale replicas of starfighters for the benefit of his son, and later grandson. He used to put heart in this activity, and he disliked being interrupted when carving models, even by Lumpawarrump.
A native speaker of Shyriiwook, Attichitcuk could understand Galactic Basic Standard, the most prominent language in the galaxy. He was, however, unable to speak it, as the structure of the Wookiee voice box and vocal cords could not reproduce the sounds of Basic. Attichitcuk's voice was deeper and raspier than that of his son Chewbacca.
Even as a cane-using three-hundred-fifty-year-old male, Attichitcuk was capable of putting up a decent fight. He was as accurate as ever with his bowcaster and still qualified to lead troops on the path to war, as he demonstrated on Geddes.
Whereas most of his brethren would not wear any clothes at all, Attichitcuk was known to have worn a crimson waist wrap in his younger years. As a Wookiee chieftain, he donned a battle dress consisting of a wide cape, a pair of shoulder armor and a crested helmet. As a mourning father in 25 ABY, he used a red shawl with golden motifs on his shoulders.
