"Spiders don't frighten you because most spiders are are no bigger than your hand. These spiders, webweavers? Big as you and me."
―Han Solo[src]

Webweavers were a large species of spiders indigenous to the planet Kashyyyk. They were capable of devouring humans. Wookiees hunted and ate the spiders. During the liberation of Kashyyyk[1] in 5 ABY,[2] Han Solo, Chewbacca, and their allies released a swarm of Webweaver spiders aboard the Imperial Star Destroyer Dominion. The spiders proceeded to kill Rear Admiral Urian Orlan and several stormtroopers. This allowed Han and his team to force their way aboard the ship's bridge.[1]


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 Aftermath: Life Debt
  2. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the Battle of Endor during the year 4 ABY. Shattered Empire, Part IV, which shows Shara Bey and Kes Dameron settling on Yavin 4, takes place three months after the Battle of Endor, and Galactic Atlas places Bey and Dameron's move to Yavin 4 in the year 5 ABY.
    The novel Aftermath says that months have passed since the Battle of Endor. Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath; therefore, the events of the former take place at least four months after the Battle of Endor. Since three months after the Battle of Endor is part of 5 ABY, as shown with Bey and Dameron's settling on Yavin 4, events of Life Debt must take place in 5 ABY at the earliest. On the other hand, the Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, leading to the conclusion that Life Debt is set in 5 ABY.
