Lowbacca is the nephew of the wookie Chewbacca. At the age of nineteen he went to the Jedi Praxeaum. There he met Jacen and Jaina Solo who immediately befriended him. Lowbacca carries with him a droid named Em-Teedee. It was programmed by Threepio to translate Lowbaccas growls, barks, and grunts. The droid has the same personality and speech pattern as Threepio also.
On a flight over the forests of Yavin, Lowbacca encountered a downed tie fighter. He was with his three new friends, Jaina, Jacen and Tenel Ka. The Tie fighter's pilot was still alive and was able to capture the twins. Lowbacca and Tenel Ka went back to the temple. Lowie told Chewbacca what had happened and he and Han Solo Went to rescue the twins. They did. A few weeks later the twins and Lowbacca were with Lando on the Gem Diver Station. The station was raided by Imperial stormtroopers and a Dathomirian witch. The witch took the twins to be trained in the ways of the Dark Side. The witch was called Tamith Kai. She separated Lowie and the twins and took the wookie trainees translator droid. Slowly she drew out Lowie's anger by blasting him with high pitched sonics and cold water blasts. After he destroyed the sonic generator Em-Teedee was returned to Lowie. Em-Teedee had been reprogrammed by the nightsister and said to Lowie that the Empire was his friend. He soon shut it off knowing what could happen. Eventually the trio was rescued by Luke Skywalker and Tenel Ka. Lowie then returned to Yavin to continue his training.
