"Spiders don't frighten you because most spiders are are no bigger than your hand. These spiders, webweavers? Big as you and me."
―Han Solo[src]

Webweavers were a large species of spiders indigenous to the planet Kashyyyk. They were capable of devouring humans. Wookiees hunted and ate the spiders.

During the liberation of Kashyyyk[1] in 5 ABY,[2] Han Solo, Chewbacca, and their allies released a swarm of webweaver spiders aboard the Imperial Star Destroyer Dominion. The spiders proceeded to kill Rear Admiral Urian Orlan and several stormtroopers. This allowed Han and his team to force their way aboard the ship's bridge.[1]

Notes and references[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 Aftermath: Life Debt
  2. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Endor to 4 ABY and the events of Shattered Empire 4, which take place three months after the battle, to 5 ABY. Furthermore, the novel Aftermath states that months have passed since the Battle of Endor, while Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath. Therefore, the events of Aftermath: Life Debt begin at least four months after the Battle of Endor, which corresponds to 5 ABY. Additionally, Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel, Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, thereby firmly placing Aftermath: Life Debt in 5 ABY.
