Mykal are aerial predators found in the huge, sprawling forests of Kashyyyk. They build large nests and attack almost anything that they spot. Some Mykal grow to enormous size and are found only in the deepest, most ancient portions of the wilderness. Mykal eggs are nutritious and tasty, and they're considered a delicacy by most sentients. However, acquiring them is quite a challenge, considering that Mykal nests are found hundreds of meters above the forest floor.

Mykal are an important part of the ecosystem and are responsible for keeping the numbers of Viper Kinrath in check. However, the Wookiees of Kashyyyk have long considered Mykal pests and shoot them on sight.

Mykal Encounters Edit

Mykal can be found almost anywhere on Kashyyyk, but they're most common in the middle to upper canopies, which is where most Wookiees build their treehouse cities. The creatures rarely venture to the forest floor, where the prey is too large and aggressive for most Mykal to handle. Heroes could be sent to eliminate Mykal that lair too closely to a Wookiee settlement or to raid Mykal nests in search of their eggs.
