Fyrnocks were silicon-based[4] creatures found inhabiting Fort Anaxes, a military base used by the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Fyrnocks were hurt by sunlight and could only live under the cover of darkness, in which they became fierce predators. However, they are immune to lights that are not solar-based. Fyrnocks were typically the size of a small humanoid, but at least one was known to grow much larger. Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren encountered fyrnocks on Fort Anaxes many years after the war. Later, Jedi Knight Kanan Jarrus and his apprentice Ezra Bridger returned to Fort Anaxes, hoping to lure the Grand Inquisitor into a trap. Using the Force, they were able to convince the Fyrnocks to attack the Inquisitor and his Imperial Stormtroopers. While the Fyrnocks were ultimately unable to defeat the Inquisitor, they did manage to take down several of the Stormtroopers.

VariationsEdit

At least one Fyrnock was known to be many times the size of standard fyrnocks. This creature was far more dangerous than standard fyrnocks, being, in fact, the mother of all fyrnocks. Years after the Clone Wars, Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger summoned this fyrnock, but had to tap into the power of the dark side to do so. The fyrnock put up a vicious fight against the Inquisitor, buying Ezra and Kanan necessary time to escape, but Ezra was briefly knocked unconscious and left shivering by the unexpected power of the dark side energy that he had summoned.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

Fyrnocks first appeared in the Star Wars Rebels episode "Out of Darkness". According to the episode guide, they were originally to be named garcors, and then nockfyrs in the manner of bats. Series executive producer Dave Filoni suggested that the name's syllables be reversed to "fyrnock".[6]

It is strongly implied in the episode guide for "Gathering Forces" that the powerful fyrnock summoned by Ezra is, in fact, the creatures' mother.[6] This was confirmed in the title Ezra's Duel with Danger.[5]
