Captain Merumeru was a male Wookiee chieftain from the planet Kashyyyk. In the last days of the Clone Wars, he led a group of warriors into battle against the Confederacy of Independent Systems on his homeworld. Merumeru and his warriors fought on the beaches beneath the city of Kachirho against the Separatist Droid Army and alongside clone troopers of the Galactic Republic. Shortly after the battle, the Republic forces turned on the Wookiees during Order 66.
