Eopies were quadruped herbivores native to the planet Tatooine. These tough creatures were acclimated to their homeworld's endless deserts, and as a result were domesticated by the planet's inhabitants. They often worked as transports or beast of burden, though they were often bad-tempered and stubborn, and could break wind if their load was too heavy.[2][3] Eopies were observed to exhibit flatulence.[1] As such, when riding a caravan of eopies, it was recommended to always ride on the foremost animal.[6]

Eopies were also found on the planet Saleucami,[7] and the desert moon Zardossa Stix,[8] as well as in the forests and jungles near the Black Spire Ruins of Batuu.[9]

On some planets, eopie was served as a delicacy. Power Sliders, a small diner located in a small settlement on the remote world of Abafar, had eopie stew on its menu.[10]

Behind the scenesEdit

Originally, the role of the eopie was to be filled by the kaadu of Naboo.[11] However, due to the evolving story of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, which called for the Gungans to be beast-riding soldiers, the kaadu was transported to Naboo,[12] leading to the creation of the eopie. An early production painting by Doug Chiang of the kaadu hauling a Podracer engine on Tatooine was retouched in Adobe Photoshop to create the eopie.[11]
