Star Wars Allies and Adversaries, sourcebook for campaigns such as Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, and Force and Destiny, received a preview of four NPC characters today. These four NPCs are Chewbacca, Wilhuff Tarkin, the Banthas, and Black Krranstin, the disgraced Wookiee.
A disgraced Wookiee in exile, Krrsantan fled Kashyyyk by volunteering to fight for the Xonti Brothers. Without Krrsantan’s consent, the Xonti Brothers grafted mechanical enhancements to Krrsantan’s body, making him practically invincible in gladiatorial bouts. Enraged, the black-furred Wookiee fled, eventually becoming an elite bounty hunter hired by the likes of Jabba the Hutt and Darth Vader. However, much of his time is spent partnered with Doctor Aphra, who has promised him a lot of credits and a lead on the Xonti Brothers. Krrsantan has sworn to repay the brothers in kind, in some twisted version of the traditional Wookiee life debt.
The Fantasy Flight Games website gives a short bio for each of these NPCs, giving players a head start on how to craft their campaign. Of course, Chewbacca, Han Solo’s Wookiee first mate, may be working on the Milennium Falcon when encountered. Wilhuff Tarkin is one of the Emperor’s most trusted officers, and Banthas are often used as mounts.
Star Wars Allies and Adversaries will be released later this year. For more information or to see the full description of these four NPCs, visit the Fantasy Flight Games website.
