Bio: Lowbacca (aka "Lowie") is the nephew of Chewbacca, a Wookiee from the Star Wars universe. Lowbacca studied to become a Jedi at Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy. He was a companion of Jaina Solo, Jacen Solo, and Tenel Ka. Since most of the people with which he would have to interact were not fluent in the Wookiee dialect, he used a small translating droid that he carried at his waist named Em Teedee. Later it was modified so as to hover, and follow him around, flying. Being a Wookiee, Lowbacca is a rarity among Jedi as Force-sensitives are less common among Wookiees than among other species, one being born only every century or so. He wields a bronze-bladed lightsaber.
During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, Lowie was one of the Jedi to go on the assault on the voxyn-creating worldship near Myrkr.
