- "I know we'll be together again. It's just a matter of time."
Mallatobuck (meaning "beautiful singer" in Shyriiwook), also known as Malla, was a female Wookiee from Kashyyyk. She was the wife of Chewbacca, and mother of their two sons, Auzituck and Lumwarrump, as well as their daughter Lumpawaroo. Malla had a brother named Vargi.
Mallatobuck was born on Kashyyyk circa 200 BBY. Malla first met Chewbacca on Kashyyyk when they were adolescents. She saw him for the first time as he made what she referred to as a reckless, show-off jump from a Wroshyr tree, made over a needlessly long distance, flirting with death, and an utterly childish thing to do". Chewbacca's jump was quite impressive, and right then at that moment she knew Chewbacca had to be hers. However, she was too nervous to admit her feelings for him. To get Chewbacca to notice her, Malla turned to Chewbacca's cousin Jowdrrl for help. Their first acquaintance was followed by a traditional courtship, though some of their flirtations did not go so well. However, after these events they maintained only a close friendship.
Their relationship eventually became more romantically involved and Chewbacca decided he wanted to marry Malla. Soon after, they were caught by Trandoshan slavers, but Chewbacca confronted these slavers, pulling a few arms off along the way. After their marriage, together they had two sons named Auzituck and Lumpawarrump. However, Chewbacca was enslaved once again in 3 BBY. Within in a year, Chewbacca was saved from Trandoshan slavers by Han Solo and in return became indebted to the Captain. Upon his return home, she and Chewbacca had a daughter named Lumpawaroo, however, her husband would soon leave Kashyyyk to become a smuggler due to the life debt he had to Han Solo. Despite this, Chewbacca returned once per year to celebrate Life Day with Malla and their children.
