Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (My Two Favorite Characters)

Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (My Two Favorite Characters)

What better way to end and begin a New Year than relaxing and enjoying a StarWars marathon.

This time, as I watched these classics, I began noticing the wide array of character personalities that George Lucas created for his acclaimed series.

I thought you might enjoy a few of my StarWar-deian academic endeavors…

My two favorite characters from Attack of the Clones are the Kouhans (the deadly caterpillars) and the Shaaks (the bronco-busting cow-ticks).


Facts about the Kouhans You My (or May Not) Know.

  1. Kouhans were arthropods- they were invertebrates (belonging to the families of spiders, insects, crustaceans, and centipedes and millipedes).
  2. Kouhans were in the centipede/ millipede family.
  3. The native home for Kouhans was the jungle-habitat of the planet Indoumodo.
  4. Kouhans were creatures that hunted in packs. Rarely did you find a single Kouhan on the prowl.
  5. They hunted their prey isolating on the prey’s body heat.
  6. Kouhans could release their venom (they could sting) from the front and from the rear.
  7. A single sting from a Kouhan wass incapacitating. Death followed within minutes.
  8. Kouhans were far more terrifying than the ‘killer caterpillars’ one thinks about here on planet Earth. They could grow to be a foot long!
  9. Virtually undetectable by advanced technological scanners, Kouhans thrived in almost every habitat.
  10. Kouhans, as you already know from the movie, were useful tools of assassins.

Facts about the Shaaks You My (or May Not) Know.

  1. The Shaak was the bronco-busting, rhinoceros-sized tick that Anakin Skywalker tries riding to impress Senator Padmé Amidala.
  2. A shaak was a herbivore (plant-eating) mammalian creature.
  3. Shaak were gentle, non-threatening animals. They were non-sentient beings (lacking ‘human-like’ intelligence).
  4. They traveled slowly on four very short legs. They had a leather-base hide.
  5. The balloon-like body of a Shaak was filled with fat. This made its body very buoyant.
  6. The fatty-surroundings of a Shaak allowed each Shaak to be injury resistant.
  7. Shaaks were raised and often herded as we shepherd cattle on our farms.
  8. They were used for food consumption as well as industrial manufacturing (hide-base products and fat-based products).
  9. Shaaks avoided the many swampy areas of Naboo and enjoyed the drier regions.
  10. Shaaks were reproductively prolific! One female could host numerous babies from several males.
