"I am impressed! You know not only the language of the Yuuzhan Vong, but the ways of the warrior. What is your name?"
"Jariah Syn. Served once with a Yuuzhan Vong warrior named Chonyo. He taught me a lot."
―Fionah Ti and Jariah Syn, in 137 ABY[1]

Chonyo was a male Yuuzhan Vong warrior[1] who crewed aboard the Crimson Axe at some point before the year 137 ABY.[2] The Crimson Axe was a vessel captained by Rav, a notorious Feeorin pirate whose opportunistic crew helped him attack ships and settlements throughout the galaxy.[3] While serving aboard the vessel, Chonyo taught the young Human Jariah Syn[2] to manipulate Yuuzhan Vong biotechnology and to operate illegal Yuuzhan Vong weaponry[3] such as thud bugs[2] and amphistaffs,[1] both of which Syn could easily handle by 137 ABY.[1][2] Chonyo was fluent in the Yuuzhan Vong, a tongue that he also taught to Syn.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Created by John Ostrander and Jan Duursema, Chonyo was first mentioned in 2007 in the seventeenth issue of the comic series Star Wars: Legacy,[2] although he was not given a name until 2010 when he was again referenced in Legacy's forty-fourth issue.[1] His only other mention in Star Wars canon has been in 2009's Legacy Era Campaign Guide.[3]
