View Full Version : What kind of Earth-Pets would the Star Wars Characters Have?

10-08-2004, 01:40 AM
This is just "one of THOSE kinds of threads..."

OK, if basically the Earth Pets we are talking about are:


and "No Pets Allowed"

what kinds of pets would each of the main characters choose?

No Pets:

I think Princess Leia would never bother with an animal. I just get the sense that she'd be just too busy to be bothered. An aquarium would be the furthest she'd ever go, but I doubt it.

cat lovers:

I think Palpatine would look like Dr. Evil with a cat, especially a Siamese or any kind of shaved one...

Chewbacca would like a little kitty-kat to take care of. It'd look kind of like CoCo the Gorilla with her pet, but I bet he'd go for a kitten and raise it, too.

Old Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi is also a lap-cat kind of guy. He'd like an older cat, less than a crazy kitten, but he'd see amusement in the younger animal as well.

Mace Windu would also like a quiet cat.

dog lovers:

I think Han Solo would be a dog person. He'd land the Falcon, find a twig, and go and play fetch with his terrier or retriever. The dog would fulfill the master-pet relationship he could never have with the stubborn and independent-minded Chewbacca.

Jango Fett would also like a dog. He'd train it as a tracker no doubt. But he'd also find some amusement with it being a pal to his son, Boba.

Boba Fett would equally be a dog person for the same reasons as his father. They're clones afterall.

horseback riders:

I think Luke Skywalker would love a pet horse to ride around the desert (or Hoth) with. He'd scratch it's neck and ask "Do you smell something girl?"

I think Shmi Skywalker would appreciate the practicality of a horse. So that makes 2 Skywalkers who would be equestrians.


Lando Calrissian would have some kind of huge or elaborate aquarium. He's just the type of guy to make a display out of something like that. It'd be impressive with expensive fish.

JarJar would also keep an aquarium, but he'd keep things he could eat in it. Pretty disgusting. I wouldn't want to visit him when he's hungry - especially if he didn't regularly clean the water.

Yoda - as much as he had snakes around him on Dagobah, I see Yoda as patiently tending an aquarium to be the height of his day.


Qui-Gon Jinn would no doubt enjoy having a pet monkey to no end. It'd remind him of having JarJar around. The monkey would get into everything and Qui-Gon would find this amusing to no end.


I think Count Dooku would meditate to bird songs and be impressed with a returning falcon's flying power. He'd like birds in cages, and those which are not.

R2D2 would also like birds, as he'd whistle back to them.

C-3PO would no doubt spend hours trying to translate bird songs and be entertained as well. Birds would be easy pets for droids to take care of.


Padme would be a hamster-girl. She'd no doubt be reminded of the Senate by a hamster spinning its wheel around in circles. She'd like to let it crawl around on her and smile at it too.

Snakes I think Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader would find feeding a snake and watching it strike live food very thought-provoking. He'd philosopize about life and death and the order of the universe as the snake wolfed down its prey.

What do you think about all this?

I'd agree with most of your post, Tycho, but I think C3PO would be more of a gardener, prolly he would like mosses or something else kinda odd....

21B would keep micro-organisms, like paramecia and amoebae and stuff, and fairly often he would spill a little petri dish of them and have to close down the medical area to de-contaminate it
Take care, sir, that puddle is swimming with malaria

Dengar would "keep" all sorts of stuff in his armour, and he'd be surrounded by flies, and possibly accompanied by crows and vultures and stuff; often you could see a flailing cloud of feathers, cursing expressively (usually in or near a dump or rundown construction site) and know it was just him after a particularly stinky couple of days....

Oh, and I think Lando would also have some kind of Tiger or something, like a black panther, for the ladies

I was just thinking he would have a ferret in one of his pouches.:beard:

I was thinking that maybe when I get the time or someone else does, we can have photoshopped pictures of the Star Wars stars with their pets.

Palpatine in his throne chair with his cat would be classic!

So would Qui-Gon and his monkey!

Han in the Falcon with his dog in the next seat....

Luke on a horse.

Humor like this is precious.

Kinda off-topic, but I set up carkoon Boba Fett wearing a Gi-Joe cowboy hat and riding the micromachines slave I bareback (thinking about Luke's horsie recalled the image clearly)
maybe I'll snap a pic and add it to this post

KH- Yesssss. a ferret would help to mask his natural scent :beard:

I may be able to get a couple of SW pet pics, though, good idea Tycho, this thread could become a classic

Wow, dissen cwazy!

I see Bossk with a tiny fuzzy kitten. It's just the total contrast between the two.

And I think that Luke should be given a duck, so he learns what it is. If not Luke, old Obi-Wan or Panaka should have a duck.

Kit Fisto would have a chihuahua.

I see Luke and Dengar with Gerbils.
:D :sur:

And I think that Luke should be given a duck, so he learns what it is.I was thinking of this same thing from the novel.

I think Chewie would would have birds so that they could nest in his fur and such.
Padme would definitely love cats.;)
I definitely love the idea of Lando having a big aquarium and the black panther.
Luke seems like more of a fluffy bunny sort of sissy.

We all know Yoda had the snakes and reptiles.

Han would without a doubt own a dog, a huge German Shephard

Kit with a chihuahua???? Nah, he would need somehting more masculine.

10-08-2004, 12:53 PM
Yes, KH hit it bang-on, a HUGE german shepard named "Max" or maybe "Rex" for Han

And yes, Lando would have both the big aquarium and the black panther

I think Darth Vader would maybe keep some Gungans, ideally clones of JarJar so that he could watch them and laugh, like people do with orangutans

General Madine prolly would not have pets, I'm thinking he'd have a nice rock collection or something, though

Admiral Ackbar would prolly keep horned toads, or gila monsters or something, he would love the irony or keeping desert animals, and would secretly feel inferior to his more highly adapted pets.....

Lando would have a pet bottle of Courvoisier :kiss:

And some chivas regal, for the purposes of "getting down" ;D
