You Build the Character #22 - Chewbacca

This contest is now closed.

Hi everyone, and welcome back to You Build the Character. This month we build the original walking carpet, the mighty Chewbacca. You have until 11.59pm (PDT) on Thursday 21 July to post your RPG stats, and any notes you want to post explaining your decisions. Once submissions have closed, all forum members will have until 11.59pm (PDT) on Thursday 4 August to vote for their favourite. Whichever build receives the most votes will win.

The prize for winning is having your stats enshrined in the YBtC Hall of Fame, as well as the bragging rights.

The following rules apply to all submissions:

  1. All builds must be created according to RAW, with no house rules (no single Athletics skill, no bonus feats for bloodlines etc).

  2. You may use "unlimited" point buy for Chewie's ability scores, provided each score is between 3 and 18 at first level (before racial and age adjustments).

  3. You are free to use material from all official Saga Edition books, up to and including The Unknown Regions.

  4. Your stats may represent Chewbacca at any point during his life, or serve as an overall interpretation of the character as a whole. You may even include multiple stats to represent multiple points in time, provided they are all different level versions of the same build (ie no swapping out talents or feats).

  5. Chewbacca is a Wookiee, and as such uses the Wookiee species traits provided on page 32 of the core rulebook.

  6. You may change your stats at any point up until submissions close, at which point any edited stats will be disqualified.


Have fun everyone, and may the Force be with you. Smile

I think Chewbacca is one of those characters where you can really go against the grain, so...

For one thing, I see no evidence that he's actually a Scout. Okay, so he comes from a forest world. Big deal. What I do see in the movies is that he seems to be Tarfur's adjutant, so I'm saying he's not a Scout, he's a Soldier.

I also don't think he's particularly bright or wise. Falling into the Ewok trap proves that much. And while he's clearly trained in Mechanics, he's not a freakin' genius at it. Just ask C-3PO. ;) But he is pretty good with a bowcaster, so I gave above average Dex and feats and talents to show that.

The whole Wookie rage concept comes from Chewy, so I gave him something to go along with that. And he seems pretty comfortable around Yoda, and later is the most accepting of Luke's Jedi power, so he's got something for that.

Last but not least, he's the only major character in the OT who doesn't have his own destiny, and who doesn't show any significant character growth. He's basically just Han's sidekick throughout. So I gave him a background instead of Destiny Points, and this build represents him in any of the four movies that he appears in. Enjoy.

I was going to build an entry, but after seeing fairytalejedi's, I really can't argue with any of the decisions. Well, maybe one or two, but it would still be a wholly derivative character build.

*Wookiees with the WP (rifles) feat are proficient with the bowcaster.
Design notes : "During his early years Chewbacca lived on Kashyyyk, but unlike many other Wookiees who rarely left the planet's lush forests, Chewbacca was consumed by an overpowering sense of adventure and exploration." -->Scout "During the first year of the Clone Wars, Chewbacca was considered to be one of the Wookiee King's greatest warriors." -->Soldier "Life and adventures with Han Solo : treasure hunts and spice runs". -->Scoundrel + stealth skill
"Chewbacca possessed exceptional skills in piloting and repair and was a master of dejarik, an ancient and challenging hologame requiring skill and strategy." --> I took : Pilot, Mechanics and K. (tactics) skills + Gambler talent.
"Ever the mechanic, many of the sublight and hyperdrive systems of the Falcon were of Chewie's own design. Even when the ship was in peak condition, he enjoyed attempting to upgrade and re-route the engines for greater efficiency and performance. Chewbacca has taken the Falcon's engines apart on several occasions and had a great understanding of the temperamental nature of its systems. He understood small craft, and had intuitive ability to understand the workings of vehicles, as situations arose. Chewbacca's technical skill and precision allowed him to understand the inner workings of a great number of devices, from droids to starcruisers. Chewbacca learned his skills at Rwookrrorro's landing pad, and helped design and build the Wookiee escape pods.
" --> I took : Tech specialist and Starship designer feats.

This is Chewie as of 19 BBY and the Battle of Kachiro. He is Tarfull's aide de camp, and one of the great leaders of the Wookiee resistance. As such I gave him training in tactics and Defensive Protection talent to protect Tarfull. He is focused in Climb since his Wookieepedia bio says that before he was even 100 his was known for his skill in navigating the trees of his homeworld. It also notes his skill with a hydro spanner, but later on, he seems to have some trouble putting C-3PO back together, so I chose not to focus him in Mechanics. So here he's been around, but not all that much, and it shows the beginnings of the great warrior he will become. Pin and Crush along with Melee Smash represent his incredible strength and skill in melee combat. It's also noted in one of the Thrawn Trilogy books that Chewie knows the Wookiee martial arts. This helps give him a good start without actually having the feat or talent (escapes me at the moment). Defensive Protection helps him serve as aide-de-cap to Tarfull during the Clone War for the Battle of Kachiro as well as before that as a resistance leader.




Well there's my quicky build, I probably could've found some more suitable feats and talents if given the time, but I think it turned out quite nicely having done him in the span of only a couple hours yesterday. If anyone has any feedback I'd love to hear it, I'm always looking to learn to build better characters.

Oh and for next contest, Cad Bane would be cool and I'd like to see some of the characters from the first KOTOR game, specifically Canderous Ordo and Carth Onasi.

fairytalejedi; becasue the person went with a new look for Chewbacca, but I'm more suprised there weren't more entries.

Also. I would love to requiest that we have some noteable but less famous Jedi High Counsel members in this contest like Kit Fisto, Plo Koon, Saesee Tiin, Eeth Koth, Ki-Adi Mundi, and others I sure I'm missing.

And now, my next submission!
With a standard 28 RAW build, this represents Chewie at the end of Revenge of the Sith. I felt that his assistance in allowing Master Yoda to retreat from the battle was incredibly important in the grand scope of the Star Wars saga, and was deserving of a Destiny completion.
I started him with a background in technology, in the scout class. I split between soldier and scout; Scout mostly for the Jury-Rigger talent and for extra skills, Soldier to increase his ranged abilities with talents and melee with feats. I see Chewie as being a bit of a jack-of-all-trades, being above average in melee & ranged attacks, as well in several skills.

After being hunted by the Galactic Empire's clone troops on Kashyyk and chased offworld, betrayed by his own kind and enslaved by Trandoshans, forced to wander the galaxy and being rescued by Han Solo, Chewie has taken on a few levels of Scoundrel and Outlaw. While the base attack is low, I'm aiming for a 'realistic' portrayal of Chewie and not an optimum Wookie warrior build. I focused on his ability to tag-team in combat with Han (Disruptive and Seize the Moment) while also expanding his ability to repair and upgrade the Falcon. Owing his life-debt to Han, Chewie is also working towards the Rescue [Han Solo] destiny.
Here is Chewie as seen in the Mos Eisley Cantina.

Having failed (at least temporarily in his life-debt to protect Han, Chewie now refocuses on protecting the woman he loves and rescuing his friend from the clutches of the vile gangster, Jabba the Hutt. This build represents Chewie during his delivery to Jabba's palace. Very much used to being on the run and perfecting his role as a combat sidekick at this point, he moves up a few levels of Outlaw, and nears completing his Rescue destiny.

At 12th level Chewie has helped to free Han. He has several ability increases, further developed his usefulness on the Falcon with Vehicle Specialist, become trained in the Pilot skill, and gained the Far Shot feat due to his skillful use of the bowcaster on Endor.

Sadly, as the final entry in Chewbacca's life, this represents him during his mission to Sernpidal during Vector Prime. Chewbacca is largely the group's mechanic in many of the post-RotJ novels and so has moved 1 level into the Improviser class, after fufilling the pre-reqs with one last level of Scout. This build does admittedly sacrifice Base Attack for skills, but Chewie's high bonuses to STR and DEX, combined with talent/feat choices that increase his damage minimize the importance of this. He's still tough to kill, scary in a melee or ranged fight, able to attract attention to himself & play off his allies in combat, repair/create ships & items, re-roll almost every physical skill with high modifiers.... Really, I think this version of Chewie is just all-around a very useful member to any party.

Wow, really good Chewie write-ups. Well done!
