Okay. A second cousin.

That's right, according to my encyclopedia Freyrr is a second cousin of Chewbacca (according to Tyrant's Test from the Blackfleet Crisis, though I never liked that book series). Just when we thought Bioware was being all creative and stuff, there they go plagiarising other authors. The nerve!

I suppose they could always claim Chewie's cousin was named after the legendary Freyrr portrayed in KotOR. Still... plagiarism! Makes me ill.

Meh, I don't know. I wouldn't exactly call it plagiarism, because to me the Star Wars universe of games, books, comics, etc. has always had a connection that is different from other situations. There would have to be some sort of continuity between the different games in order for it to be enjoyable. A lot of stuff from KOTOR comes from earlier Star Wars comics and such. Nar Shadda was from a comic, Marka Ragnos and Naga Shadow come from earlier comics as well, and their temples can be explored on Korriban.

Weird. "Freyyr" is Zaalbar's dad, and "Freyrr" is Chewie's second cousin. Tyrant's test was released December 1, 1996, which was 7 years before KOTOR. And Freyrr's other appearance was in Rebel Dawn, which is obviously written before KOTOR as well.

So, I'm just repeating stuff, but yep, just to clarify.

Did you know that Inyri Forge is ACTUALLY a human female from Kessel? No foolin'.

Let's see, Freyyr in KotOR was the leader who was banished by his son, (which I always kill BTW, I hate the fact that he breaks into my ship.) But if I remember correctly, you can kill Freyyr before he makes the Wookie's kill the slavers, so for all we know, Freyyr is a common name on Kashykke (yes I know that is spelled wrong.) But I think people are encoraged to borrow stuff from other Star Wars media to make sure things stay in continuity.
