Wurrek were a type of tentacled creature with red skin. In 0 BBY, a human inhabitant of Jedha City on the moon Jedha was cooking a wurrek in a pan over a fire in the city's streets as the rebel operatives Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor walked past, shortly before the city's destruction by the Death Star superweapon.
