Happy Birthday, Waru

Today we wish a special birthday to Waru. Nineteen years ago today, Waru was brought to life amidst the pages of Vonda N. McIntyre’s The Crystal Star. The 309 page hardcover was a New York Times bestseller, and for good or bad, Waru is well remembered to this day for his strangeness. I mean, there aren’t many characters that Han and Luke actually took a swim in. Nor have there been many who feasted on Force sensitive individuals in an attempt to return home. In a way, Waru is kind of like a maligned version of E.T., he’s just more sinister.

So in celebration of this momentous day, stop by the Church of Waru, give thanks to the author who gave him birth, or just stop by and give him a shout out on Twitter. Waru promises not to eat you…probably.
