Rancor Attack on Yavin IV

January 2, 2013

GNN Reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide spoke with the KOJ about a Rancor attack.

Yavin IV: Earlier in the day an armourd Rancor attacked a KOJ Knight and a padawan while they were at the meditation circle. Several others came on the scene to help and the creater was finally turned away but a padawan was left seriously injured while others had minor injuries.

KOJ speaking with reporters about the Rancor attack.

Lady Ayperis was with her padawan, Reesa when the Rancor attacked. Ayperis stated that the Rancor was actually armoured and didn’t act like a wild beast, instead giving thought to its attacks and who to go after. Master Iria who was told of the incident later stated that there were a few wild Rancors on Yavin IV, being left by former enemies, but that this one was quite different and obviously brought there specifically to attack the KOJ.

As the creature fought with the Jedi and the Padawan, several others came on the scene to try to subdue the beast or to help their fellow comrades. Padawan Wilder said the battle was intense as he helped the injured to the medical facility. In the end the Rancor finally ran off and disappeared into the heavy wooded areas surrounding the enclave.

For now, who or why brought this armoured Rancor to the moon is yet unknown. The Jedi plan to speak with the Nightsisters of Dathomir about the matter and to see how best to hunt and subdue the beast.”
