Ewok Handlers were a type of footsoldiers used by the Zann Consortium. When going into battle these brutal men would arm themselves with Gaffi sticks and thermal detonators. They would also carry around nets filled with captured Ewoks from the Forest Moon of Endor.
The "Ewok Handlers" would treat their Ewoks brutally and prior to battle they would have strapped vests with explosives devices onto their ill-fated captives. When the Zann Consortium forces came in sight of enemy units, especially groups of infantry, an Ewok Handler would let loose an Ewok. The unfortunate Ewok would then run towards the group of strangers, perhaps in the hope of salvation or protection, and blow up with devastating effect.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ewok handlers look similar to the the rancor-handler Malakili from Return of the Jedi. It is unknown if this is meant to imply a connection to the Circus Horrificus, the organization to which Malakili once belonged.
In Galactic Conquest mode in Forces of Corruption, Ewok Handlers can only be recruited if Endor has been corrupted with slavery.
