Eopies were quadruped herbivores native to the planet Tatooine. These tough creatures were acclimated to their homeworld's endless deserts, and as a result were domesticated by the planet's inhabitants. They often worked as transports or beast of burden, though they were often bad-tempered and stubborn, and could break wind if their load was too heavy. Eopies were observed to exhibit flatulence. On some planets, Eopie was served as a delicacy. Power Sliders, a small diner located in a small settlement on the remote world of Abafar, had Eopie stew on its menu.
Behind the scenesEdit
Originally, the role of the Eopie was to be filled by the Kaadu of Naboo. However, due to the evolving story of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, which called for the Gungans to be beast-riding soldiers, the Kaadu was transported to Naboo, leading to the creation of the Eopie. An early production painting of the Kaadu hauling a Podracer engine on Tatooine by Doug Chiang was retouched in Adobe Photoshop to create the Eopie.
