|Freedom||Slavery||Lowhhrick abhors all aspects and institutions of slavery…even considering ownership of sentient droids a form it. He makes it a point to try to help free others from this horrible social abomination, and is a proponent for the droid independence movement.|
|Family||10||Lowhhrick vows to exact righteous vengeance with furious anger on the Trandoshan raiding party that was responsible for murdering his sister and nephew.|
|Oath||5||While not technically considered a life-debt in the true sense of the Wookiee tradition, Lowhhrick has made a friendship oath to his companions for helping free him from bondage.|
The Wookiees of the heavily forested planet of Kashyyyk are a proud species with a rich culture and sophisticated technology. Unfortunately, their bestial appearance and inability to speak Basic often leads to the misconception that all Wookiees are little more than savage brutes. A long-standing antagonism between the Wookiees of Kashyyyk and the lizard-like Trandoshans frequently flares up as Trandoshans hunt Wookiees for sport. Lowhhrick’s sister and nephew were victims of one of these Trandoshan raiding parties, and both were killed. Lowhhrick vowed to hunt down the Trandoshans responsible…and was promptly captured. So began his long career as a gladiator, forced to do battle for the amusement of others.
Lowhhrick eventually achieved such fame that his contract was acquired by a Hutt gangster called Teemo and he was brought to Tatooine. Teemo would periodically send Lowhhrick into the ring to vanquish gladiators belonging to his business “partners” as a means of establishing dominance. From time to time Lowhhrick was asked to serve as a body guard during particularly improtant “business meetings,” where his presence would serve as a reminder that Teemo had many trained kilers on his payroll.
Lowhhrick struck up a friendship with Pash – one of Teemos best pilots, and 41-VEX – the droid medic who patched him up after each fight. These new friends also worked for Teemo the Hutt and recently made a run for it and escaped the slimy slug’s service. They had originally planned to take Lowhhrick with, but the their limited window of opportunity lined up poorly with the Wookiee’s scheduled gladiatorial matches…which left him stranded.
Things finally worked out for Lowhhrick when Pash and 41-VEX returned to infiltrate Teemo’s palace to attempt to gather intelligence that could bring the Hutt’s criminal empire to an end. He made a new friend in a Bothan called Dall, a fellow prisoner who helped to free him. They joined with Pash, 41-VEX, Red and Sasha…helped them complete their mission and made their escape together.
Lowhhrick has a great deal of experience with combat, both from his career as a gladiator and his time acting as a warrior on Kashyyyk. He is disciplined and thoughtful by nature, but his experiences of the past few decades have made him some-what short-tempered. He takes his obligations and his oaths very seriously. and nothing is more important to him than getting vengeance for his family. Although Lowhhrick cannot speak Basic, he understands it quite well and his current companions understand him equally well.
