Pyromania was a term that described an unhealthy compulsion within the minds of sentient beings to set things on fire. Luke Skywalker once described Jacen Solo's burning of the wroshyr forests of Kashyyyk with the Anakin Solo's long-range turbolasers as pyromania.
Behind the scenesEdit
Pyromania is a real-world impulse-control disorder that is identified by a pattern of deliberate and purposeful fire setting, fascination with fire, and gratification when setting fires.
