Rawwks were a type of creature found on the gas giant Bespin. They flitted among the algal trees that grew in the breathable upper atmosphere of the planet,[2] and they preyed[1] upon schools of air shrimp.[2] Rawwks had a small body and two wings covered in tan and blue feathers. Their head consisted of two eyes with small crests above them and a large mouth with teeth. The creatures also possessed a three pronged blue tail[1] and were blue-and-red tipped.[2]

At some point after 34 ABY, an illustration of a rawwk was included on a map of Bespin thought to have been drawn by the artist Gammit Chond based purely on travelers' tales. The map was later restored and published by the Graf Archive.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

In the new Star Wars canon, rawwks were first mentioned in the 2015 reference book Ultimate Star Wars.[3] The creatures were then pictured in the 2016 reference book Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, which was written by Emil Fortune and illustrated by Tim McDonagh.[1] Rawwks originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where they were created by Kevin J. Anderson for the 1994 novel Jedi Search.[4]
