The Loth-Wolves are rare predators native to Lothal in Star Wars Rebels. They were known to plague farmers, and were thought to have perished hundreds of years ago. It would not be until the time of the Rebellion against the Empire that the Loth-Wolves would be seen again by Jedi padawan, Ezra Bridger. They are capable of using the Force and are able to speak.

Background

The Loth-wolf is a large animal, standing upwards of 4-5 feet at the shoulder. They are powerful and able to carry two people on their backs. Appearance-wise, the Loth-wolf resembles a typical wolf, with white or dark brown fur, yellow eyes and canine features, through its legs and paws are covered in scales as are its muzzle and eyebrows. They are also very fast and highly elusive. 

Role in the series

Loth-wolves were predators native to Lothal and are featured in the world's primitive cave paintings, and according to Ezra Bridger, have not been seen by the native people for more than a hundred years. However, during the events of "Flight of the Defender", one continually appears before Ezra, who is the only one to see it and hear its howls. After stealing and crashing the TIE Defender they stole from Thrawn, Ezra and Sabine Wren encounter the Loth-Wolf, who uses the Force to put Sabine into a deep sleep before helping Ezra and Sabine to escape the Empire's search party. It then carries the two back to their comrades safely. When asked why it helped them, the Loth-wolf replies with a single word: "Dume," before disappearing before Ezra can point the creature out to Hera SyndullaKanan Jarrus and the other Rebels. When questioned about the wolf, Sabine says she saw no wolf and does not remember it, while Kanan believes that the wolf and its sudden appearance stands as a sign that all paths are converging. As they leave, the Loth-wolf watches the group from afar.

Later on, in "Kindred", the Loth-wolves, led by the white pack leader, lead Ezra, Kanan and the rest of the Spectres to safety when they are pursued by Rukh and Arihnda Pryce's forces. The Loth-wolves lead them to a bright light, which inexplicably transports them to the planet's southern hemisphere. Later, the Loth-wolves bring Kanan and Ezra to a cave where the walls are carved with ancient cave paintings signifying the tales of Jedi. Upon questioning why the white Loth-wolf brought them to this cave, the creature says "Dume", once more, causing Kanan to realize that the creature knows his true name, is strong with the Force, that it has a purpose to play, and that the Empire is doing something else far more sinister on Lothal other than building TIE Defenders. The wolf then disappears and leaves them wonder what path they are on, and where that path is headed.

In "Rebel Assault", the white Loth-wolf and its two black pack-mates appear again to stop Kanan from running to Hera's rescue and his certain death when she is captured by Grand Admiral Thrawn's forces. The Loth-wolf also gives Kanan a message before departing.

Trivia

  • When Ezra inquires the wolf why it was helping him, the wolf answers with 'Dume,' before vanishing. This is revealed to be Kanan Jarrus's real last name, which he has kept a secret from the Empire.
  • The Loth-Wolves seem to be strongly inspired by the wolves from the anime movie Princess Mononoke.
