Star Wars – Adversary Data File
Rival – Gundark
Creatures of the Galaxy
Galactic Oddities – Under the Galactic Empire, society throughout the galaxy has entered a sort of normalcy where adherence to Imperial law supersedes many local customs and traditions. This has been of great benefit to those who rank themselves among the Empire’s preferred citizens, but has pushed those who cannot or will not adjust to the expectations placed upon them to the edges of civilized society. Sometimes this is a literal definition, as many individuals of this sort flock to the less rigidly-controlled Outer Rim Territories to make their lives relatively free from Imperial oversight. The Empire has not fully extended its control to this region of the galaxy, and seems unwilling or unable to completely establish control there, allowing many nooks and crannies to form in which the Alliance and other, more criminal organizations, can conceal themselves.
From Age of Rebellion
Native to the planet Vanqor (R-5) in the Outer Rim Territories, the gundark is one of the most ferocious and aggressive species in the known galaxy. Semi-intelligent, gundarks grasp the basic use of tools, but they lack any known language or other hallmark of a sentient species. Their sheer ferocity has made them a popular target for big game hunters and those who enjoy pitting creatures against one another in gladiatorial-style contests. In this way, the beast has spread to different worlds throughout the galaxy, where it flourishes in certain environments and planets. In many cases, the beasts are hunted to extinction because of the threat they pose to natural wildlife and the denizens of a given planet, but on worlds with larger regions of untamed wilderness, packs of gundarks can survive and thrive in areas without ever encountering sentient life.
From Edge of the Empire
Gundarks are vicious and strong mammalian anthropoids from Vanqor, an arid planet of deserts and canyons. The creature is bigger and more powerful than an average human, with two legs, four arms, and ears almost as large as its head. They are relatively intelligent beasts, and their cunning combined with their unpleasant temperament means they are popular gladiatorial fodder in some parts of the galaxy.
