Literally meaning "Dead Forest" in the Wookiee tongue, Kkowir Forest was an area on Kashyyyk, and home to the local Kerritamba tribe of Wookiees, the Outcasts, and the mysterious Sayormi cult. The Myyydril Caverns lay in the northern parts of the forest.
The Kkowir Forest was home to the Kerritamba Tribe's village, a village set up by the Kerritamba. The Kerritamba Village and tribe was led by Chief Kerritamba. Many dangers lay in the Kkowir Forest, including the Sayormi, who were believed to be ghosts that lived in the lower levels of the forest, and webweavers, a huge, nonsentient arachnid species. The Dead Forest area was one of the most dangerous areas in the forest. Many Sayormi settled there.
Points of interestEdit
A few places in the forest interested explorers and dared them to travel further into the forest. The Mysess Glade was where the Great Tree was located. The Myyydril Caverns was where the Myyydril Tribe, a tribe of Wookiees, made a small village. Another area was the Kerritamba Village Arena, just across from the Kerritamba Village.
In the forest were many types of animals, such as the uller. Webweavers, a huge, arachnid species, lived inside and outside the ShadowWeave Caverns. Urnsor'is could be found in caves in the forest. Shadevale Venomsting were in the rivers that flowed through the forest, and on land next to the river.
