In the expanded universe do any Ewoks ever leave the forest moon?

  • Hell, I wish not! Those little rodents have destroyed the empire! :D

    Why am I visualizing a trebuchet built with their gigantic logs?

Yes. X-Wing book series (second half by Aaron Allston) had a biologically enhanced Ewok Kolot who flew with the RogueWraith Squadron.

Amusingly, before meeting Kolot, everyone in the galaxy (as per Lucas's canon) was 100% sure that Ewoks aren't intelligent enough to pilot a starfighter.

So, Wedge Antilles made up a fictional Wraith pilot Kettch, who became a legend and then a Ewok doll fighter pilot dummy that flew with Wedge. And then they acquired the acquaintance of Kolot.

    You might mention Kolot's inspiration, Kettch, even though he was a hoax.

  • @Kevin - um... to doll or not to doll.... sure... Yub Yub!! Jun 30, 2015 at 17:24
  • I read the X-Wing series many years ago but I don't remember this. I must have blocked it out of my mind.

  • @Null Kettch was in the later X-wing books (6? 7?), IIRC, Kolot was first introduced as sort of a teaser at the last book I read (9?). So it's possible you just didn't read far enough.

    @Kevin I read them all. I'm pretty sure I blocked this out of my head, and I'm a little annoyed at this question for reminding me.

Although Ewoks are a rare sight in the galaxy, several HAVE left Endor according to Legends canon. Chief among these are:

  • Tarfang - a criminal & smuggler, Tarfang was encountered by the Solo family during the Yuuzhan Vong War. He often used his cuddly appearance to deceive others.
  • Kolot - a cyborg creation of Project Chubar, Kolot eventually became co-pilot in a shuttle business on Corellia
  • Treek - a mercenary who escaped the Endor system by hijacking a crashed freighter, Treek became somewhat famous during the First Galactic War
  • Unidentified Jedi - in the days of the Yuuzhan Vong War, at least one Ewok had trained as a Jedi, presumably at Luke's Praxeum on Yavin IV.
  • Megawok - the "Megawok" was a giant (presumably mutant) Ewok which was sighted around the galaxy in the days of the Galactic Civil War. How it got so big or left Endor is unknown.
  • Unidentified Cantina Patron - an unidentified Ewok was present at a cantina altercation involving Han Solo in the days of the New Republic
  • Unidentified Bounty Hunter - according to unsubstantiated rumors, an Ewok was among the bounty hunters who responded to Count Dooku's invitation on Coruscant.

    LOL, I got a good laugh at this. +1. The rest I need to scrub from my mind again.

  • Tarfang is a smuggler and copilot who appears in the (Legends) Dark Nest trilogy.
  • Treek travels with the player in the video game Star Wars The Old Republic.

There are Ewoks (Indirectly mentioned only) in 'The Face of Evil' (a short story by Landry Q Walker) as being present in Maz Kanata's castle. So I guess this is Cannon. They are also (Indirectly mentioned) in the novel Aftermath; also Cannon.
