Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Galaxy at War
Watch-Beasts originate on the planet Gamorr, but various subspecies are found throughout the galaxy, most notably on the Imperial world of Sirpar. These enormous beasts resemble both bears and pigs, with squat but powerfully built furry bodies and porcine faces and snouts. A Watch-Beast has two large horns and massive tusks, which are primarily for display but can also be used to gore prey. The Watch-Beast's meaty legs are covered in dense fur and end in short, dull claws.
As its name implies, a Watch-Beast excels at guarding an area and alerting its owner to potential threats. It is extremely territorial and considers any creature, or even a moving object such as a Speeder, to be a threat. When alerted to the presence of an intruder, a Watch-Beast releases a croaking bark that can be heard for nearly a kilometer. Gamorreans steal cubs from their mothers and bond them to a single individual, whom the Watch-Beast obeys utterly. Most owners make a point of training their Watch-Beasts to ignore allies and friendly Vehicles in order to keep the Watch-Beast from barking- or attacking- every time someone arrives or leaves.
