Background: A vicious beast used by the Separatists in the Clone Wars, the gutkurr is a huge creature with powerful jaws and a thick carapace lined with bony protrusions. Gutkurrs are native to Ryloth, but for centuries they have been exported by crime lords as pets, much like Jabba the Hutt used a captured rancor to torment his enemies. The gutkurr is a surprisingly intelligent creature that, while absolutely vicious, maintains a level of cunning exceeding that of other predators. Although driven by their natural predatory instincts, the gutkurr is intelligent enough to be trained but only by those brave enough to approach the massive predators. Although the gutkurr’s thick shell and internal insulation allow it to survive forshort periods on the frigid night side of Ryloth, the gutkurr typically makes its home in the twilight area, preferring to stay out otthe intense heat of the day side ofthe planet. Gutkurrs sometimes travel through the night side of the planet, ambushing unwary travelers.
