[OOC Notes: I have taken some liberties by keeping the last... century or so of Kerriwarr's life very brief in the biographical section. Details can be expounded upon request, but I was sorely unaware of the age / time system utilized in the forum, and did not feel like writing a century of biographical information. I will certainly expound upon information IRP and in this biography over time, but for the sake of being approved, I think it is functional with the amount of information I currently possess]

A member of the Rwook subspecies of Wookiee, Kerriwarr stands at an impressive height of a muscular build. His chestnut visage is often the visual centerpiece of any interaction or group the master is a part of due to his towering nature. Kerriwarr is duly recognized as a Tree Carer: Both by the accoutrement of flowers and mosses adorning his fur, and the long flowing robes which are characteristic of members his organization. Currently, at one hundred and sixty-seven years of age, Kerriwarr is within the range in his lifespan that is his physical prime, possessing no short order of strength and a level of agility many do not expect.


Just as Kerriwarr carries with him an impressive physical impression, so too does the Wookiee appear significantly within the ethereal landscape of the Force. His presence has been described like the arching limbs of a great tree, casting a dappling, serene and tranquil light upon those who stand within his presence. So too, in equal balance to his cascading presence, do those with a more discerning glance sense an incredibly firm, astoundingly deep-rooted grounding within the Force, reflective of over a century of meditation, self-discovery, study, and enlightenment. Conclusively, he can be - and often is - described as looming and tranquil, in identical proportion.


Following suit with his looming physical and ethereal visage, so too does the great Wookiee exhibit a most piercing and astute gaze. His keen forest-shaded eyes express a honed disposition, teeming with machinations unknown and a deeply-rooted analysis of all that which they see. Described by his peers - particularly his more mischievous students - as among the keenest and discerning within the Tree Carer's members, it is incredibly rare that one enters Kerriwarr’s presence unnoticed. His gaze is not exclusive to this judicious disposition. Indeed, the Wookiee's ears and nose are just as sharp as his eyes.


Kerriwarr's chestnut fur is rarely seen without adornment. Meticulously groomed on a daily basis, the Wookiee often takes the time to sport a wide assortment of beads, stones, feathers, and flora fastened by an assortment of braids within his fur - particularly the fur on his head. He is commonly seen to braid the hair underneath his nose and lips - his approximation of a beard and mustache - though many of the adornments find their way to his approximation of a head of hair and its subsequent braids.


Complimenting - and simultaneously opposing - the chestnut body of the Wookiee are his common adornments. While he is known to wear a variety of attire throughout different occasions, his daily wear consists of a pearl-colored linen tunic and tabard, embroidered with a cascading array of floral designs complemented by the unique aspect of his daily attire - the castleton-shaded cloak by which he can be so infamously recognized. In battle, the Wookiee exchanges his unique cloak, opting for a set of Wroshyr wood armor plating of his creation, its surfaces adorned with a series of carved cultural designs and pairs it with a gnarled Wroshyr quarterstaff - which regularly doubles as a hiking aid. Within a ceremonial setting, the Tree Carer dons a drooping cloak - of similar coloration to his normal wear -  adorned with an agglomeration of vegetative designs embroidered with fine white and golden accents.

Known Skills: Kerriwarr is a skilled woodcarver and has an aptitude for most artistic skills, having spent a majority of his youth partaking in his family trade through sketching, designing, and executing products of his father's craft. Additionally, Kerriwarr possesses skills of hunting, tracking, and fieldcraft like most Wookiees. As a Tree Carer, Kerriwarr is a masterful herbalist and botanist, specializing in the care of the great Wroshyr trees which tower all across the world of Kashyyyk.



The genesis of the Wookiee called “Kerriwarr'' found itself in a small hamlet, nestled among the great Wroshyr trees outside of the famed city of Rwookrrorro in a litter of three. The son of the renowned woodcarver Busurra, Kerriwarr was raised in relative comfort among his peers, capitalizing on the wealth of his father’s prestigious artworks. Among his peers in the Mallakkata school, Kerriwarr stood the tallest. A Wookiee of immense size and stature, Kerriwarr’s athleticism was notably impressive, gaining repute among his peers for his seemingly incomprehensibly swift reflexes and hulking degree of strength. As a child, Busurra enrolled his child in a wrestling school, placing Kerriwarr among a class to learn Wruushi, wherein the young Wookiee excelled. Taking an interest in many scholarly pursuits throughout his youth, the young Wookiee became infatuated by the cultures and worlds of the wider galaxy. At the age of ten, Kerriwarr was well-versed with the majority of his hamlet’s library, being hampered only by his lack of familiarity with Galactic Basic - something that he was not taught as a child. During his youth, Kerriwarr also fostered no short order of interest with his father’s craft, taking to Busurra’s workshop and being stewarded by the master carver at any and all moments. Learning the tools of the trade and trying his hand at more than a few artworks of his own, the young Wookiee was clearly a natural, endowed with the gifts of his progenitors.


As a result of his many gifts, Kerriwarr quickly developed an entitled sense of ego, becoming somewhat of a braggart and a bully. Ostracizing his companions to no end, his father was ambivalent to his behavior unless it bore fruit he was forced to contend with. His mother Srrryanna, however, took great issue with the sour reputation her son had fostered. After one particularly nasty altercation wherein the young Wookiee had pummeled an opponent after a Wruushi match, Srrryanna took to her son with a relentless verbal assault before all of his peers, harshly chastising and humiliating the young Wookiee to the point of tears. From that point onward, Kerriwarr learned his lesson. Carefully monitored by his mother for any bad behavior, Kerriwarr matured into a kind, compassionate young Wookiee. At ten years of age, he had corrected his egotistical tendencies, leaning towards a humble, quiet, intelligent disposition and a guiding friend to his peers, aiding them where his repertoire of talents allowed.


Upon the Wookiee’s thirteenth birthday, his coming-of-age ceremony was an order. Having dedicated some time to practice with the various weaponry of his people, including the famed bowcasters and ryyk blades, the village elders considered him ready to begin his training for the Hrrtayyk ceremony. Taken out by one of the locally renowned hunters, Pyrrhaykk, Kerriwarr was taken to the shadowlands. It was on the dark forest floor of Kashyyyk that Pyrrhaykk taught Kerriwarr a great deal about weaving ropes, setting up tents, and other important skills within the realm of fieldcraft. Additionally, Pyrrhaykk’s mentorship pertained to the realm of hunting. Learning how to find clean water, forage the correct plants and insects, and distinguishing them from the poisonous ones. Furthermore, Kerriwarr learned from Pyrrhaykk how to properly stalk and hunt, killing a notable three Katarn among his hunts in the shadowlands, along with a slew of Wyyyschokks. It was during this hunt that the pair, after some two months in the shadowlands, looked up and saw the ethereal white underbelly of a Shyyyo bird through the wisping canopies of the forest. It was at this moment that Pyrrhaykk declared that Kerriwarr had found his Rraktorr, and they returned to the village. The time for his true ascension had begun. Upon his return, Kerriwarr was given his supplies for the Hrrtayyk: An impressively crafted pair of Ryyk Blades, and a beautifully carved bowcaster by his father, and a necklace of Kshyy vine ornamented with local flowers. The newly adorned young Wookiee was then redeployed along the Rryatt trail, sent to the shadowlands for his ascension.


Approaching the Well of the Dead from the Rryatt trail, his first task was to collect the vine of the Syren plant. Whether out of an egotistical statement of overconfidence or a desire to prove himself, he insisted on completing the first portion of his Hrrtayyk on his lonesome. As he approached the great Syren plant, he held his breath and stepped lightly. Reaching upward and with blinding speed, he leapt over the plant, ripping out as much of the fiber as he possibly could in the process just as the jaws of the plant snapped closed. Stumbling away in fear, he looked to his hands, where some several meters of the fibers rest in his hands. He had succeeded in the first part of his Hrrtayyk. The second, however, would prove to be far less trivial for the young Wookiee. The second section of his ceremony consisted of the greatest trial of a Hrrtayyk ceremony: climbing a Wroshyr tree from bottom to top. Even being a skilled and swift climber - thanks to the teachings of Pyrrhaykk’s guidance, his ascension took him three days, and throughout the course of it the boy had to fend off several of the native fauna, including a particularly nasty encounter with a pack of Wyyyschokks as he climbed a particularly steep part of the great Wroshyr tree. The boy barely escaped the venomous spiders, relying on the bowcaster immensely. As Kerriwarr reached the top of the tree, he set out to create a beacon for the observers to see him and to prove his completion of the ceremony. He found a flat divot in the top of the tree, and started assembling wood in the center of it. He created a small campfire, and despite his best attempts, he couldn’t manage to get enough air through the crevice in order to keep the fire sustainable. As his frustration grew, he eventually settled on his knees in front of his small campfire, watching it slowly die. He wanted so badly for the wind to carry the fire into a blazing inferno. The longer he concentrated on it, he started to feel a slight breeze. As he continued to shape the wind through the small depression in the tree, the breeze picked up into small, precise bursts of air that sent the campfire ablaze. Believing it to be a miracle, Kerriwarr rejoiced. He had succeeded in his Hrrtayyk.

Returning from the great tree to his village, he was met with jubilance. Given the miraculous nature of his success, it was the historic Order of the Tree Carers that took great interest in him. Following the typical celebrations, he was approached by the Carers and given an offer to join them as an apprentice of their organization. Elated, Kerriwarr enthusiastically accepted their offer.


Over a lifetime of training, teaching, and cultivating - supplemented by no short order of hiding and fleeing of the Imperial wrath and its consequences, wherein Kerriwarr secluded himself from known society to preserve the Tree Carers' vault of cones - later, Kerriwarr continues as an influential, stern leader of the organization, supervising a great deal of the efforts to restore the now tarnished Kashyyyk back to her former glory.
