Ruggers were a species of rodent native to the moon of Endor. They were capable of singing and did so as they climbed through the villages made by members of the sentient Ewok species also native to the moon. They hid amongst tall grasses on the moon's plains, where they were hunted for food by the sentient Yuzzum that dwelt there. The Yuzzum rode tamed rakazzak beasts while hunting ruggers and roasted the rodents before consumption.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ruggers were first mentioned in The Illustrated Star Wars Universe, a Star Wars Legends book written by Kevin J. Anderson and released in 1995. They were confirmed to exist in canon by the reference book Ultimate Star Wars, which was released in 2015.
