The aged and wise Chief Chirpa was the leader of the tribe of Ewoks that befriended the Rebel strike team on Endor. After some initial hostility, Chirpa agreed to include the Rebels as part of the tribe. He even devoted his forces in the final battle against the Empire on Endor. Chirpa was gray of fur, and strong of will. On his head, he wore a garland of leaves, teeth, and the horns of great animals he bested in hunting. In his right hand he carried a staff made of the longbone of a flying reptile. In his left sat an iguana, his pet and advisor.
