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, and they preyed upon schools of air shrimp. 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 and were blue-and-red tipped.
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.
Behind the scenes
In the new Star Wars canon, rawwks were first mentioned in the 2015 reference book Ultimate Star Wars. 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. Rawwks originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where they were created by Kevin J. Anderson for the 1994 novel Jedi Search.
