Merumeru was a male Wookiee from the planet of Kashyyyk. In the last days of the Clone Wars, Merumeru led a group of warriors into battle against the Separatist Alliance on his homeworld.[2] He and his warriors fought on the beaches beneath the city of Kachirho[3] against the Separatist Droid Army and alongside clone troopers of the Galactic Republic. Shortly after the end of the battle the Republic forces turned on the Wookiees during Order 66.[1]

Personality and traitsEdit

Merumeru was a brown-furred, 2.25-meter tall Wookiee. He and his men were valiant fighters.[2]


As a chieftain, Merumeru wielded a wooden command staff.[2] During the Battle of Kashyyyk, he wore a helmet, ornamented pauldrons, and a harness.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Merumeru was portrayed by actor Axel Dench in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith but identified only as "Wookiee Chieftain" during production.[4] He was named in the Star Wars Legends reference book Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith The Visual Dictionary which was written by James Luceno and released in 2005.[5] The name was confirmed to be canon by the reference book Ultimate Star Wars, which was released in 2015.[3]
