Wolves were quadrupedal, canine creatures with long bushy tails, short tapered ears, and a pointed muzzle containing sharp teeth.

Wolves in the galaxy[edit | edit source]

Both the interior of the Mortis monastery and the World Between Worlds depictes a wolf amongst the stars.[3][4]

In the atrium of the Lothal Jedi Temple, there was ancient artwork depicting humanoid lifeforms riding what appeared to be giant wolves.[5]

The 104th Battalion of the Grand Army of the Republic was also known as the "Wolf Pack" Battalion, and its members had stylized wolf faces painted on their helmets.[6]

Kanan Jarrus and a white Loth-wolf

A species of wolf, the Loth-wolf, was native of Lothal and it was considered extinct during the Imperial Era. However, at some point following the Battle of Atollon, Sabine Wren and Ezra Bridger rode a white Loth-wolf.[7]

Around 24 ABY,[8] Phasma along with three Scyre warriors and three stormtroopers fought a pack of wolves, known as skinwolves on the planet Parnassos.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

"They have this duality towards mankind and a representation that to me is very similar to the Force. The Force has a dark side and a light side. These animals have stories that seem to have a dark side and a light side. I thought that they made an interesting symbol as far as an interaction with our Jedi characters [went] and what they might think of them. Or what they might think [the wolves] are actually saying to them."
―Dave Filoni, on wolves[src]

A sketch by Dave Filoni

Dave Filoni, who worked on the TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels as executive producer, is fascinated by wolves, being known to incorporate the creatures into The Clone Wars and Rebel sketches. Inspired by the film Never Cry Wolf, Filoni noted that wolves are often vilified but also seen as teachers in many folkloric traditions, and saw the duality and representation of wolves in regards to people in the real-world as akin to the nature of the Force in Star Wars. Having conversed with George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, about his observation, Dave Filoni thought that wolves made an interesting symbol in Star Wars, particularly regarding its Jedi characters.[9]

Phasma takes place a few weeks before the beginning of Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire which begins during the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, which is dated to 34 ABY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As the events of mission to Parnassos take place ten years before the main story of Phasma, it can be deduced the mission took place in around 24 ABY.
