"However, the Rebels are devious, and like fanned rawls they have hidden themselves well and fashioned nests and lairs at the highest levels of power."
―Inquisitor Loam Redge[src]

Fanned rawls were reptilian snakes from the Mid Rim world of Naboo. Varieties included giant fanned rawls, spitting rawls, and vine rawls. The powerful Teräs Käsi attack of Spitting Rawl was named after the one variety of rawl.[1]

Rawls had a scaly hide.[1] The fans, located on the side of their bodies, were used for swimming. They were reported to sometimes grow to huge proportions.[4]

Rawls could also be found on the planet Mandalore.[3] A variant of the snake was the shadevale venomsting of Kashyyyk.[2] Inquisitor Loam Redge likened the Rebel Alliance to fanned rawls,[5] which were considered to be quite dangerous serpents.[6]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Fanned rawl concept from Pencil to Pixel

Fanned rawls were creatures in the 2003 massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, prior to the game's closure on December 15, 2011.[1][7] While the vast majority of Naboo's wildlife was well-established through Episode I and other sources, the team created a handful of new creatures for the planet, including the rawl, to fill specific niches.[6]
