Burryaga | Characters of Star Wars: the High Republic

Centuries before the rise of the Empire, we are introduced to Burryaga. The sensitive Wookiee Jedi Padawan from The High Republic era.

It’s time for us to meet Burryaga. The sensitive Jedi Padawan from Star Wars: The High Republic. Burryaga is one of the few Wookiees to travel from the lush forests of Kashyyyk to study in the ornate halls of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. While he is skilled with his broadsword-like lightsaber, it is Burryaga’s natural, effortless ability to sense the emotions of others that sets him apart. The gifted Wookiee studies under Jedi Master Nib Assek, who learned Shryiiwook in order to more properly educate her student in the ways of the Force.


Fans first learned about Burryaga in Charles Soule’s The High Republic adventure ‘Light Of The Jedi‘. (Read our review). And now, StarWars.com is taking a closer look at The High Republic‘s Wookiee Padawan.


Star Wars: The High Republic is a multimedia epic set centuries before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. During the prime of the Jedi Order.

Our reviews of these wonderful stories have come thick and fast. Whether it’s A Test Of Courage, Light Of The Jedi, The Great Jedi Rescue, Into The Dark, or the Marvel comic. We have the review for you. So check back regularly and never miss a single review.
