Star Wars: The Rise of the New Republic
Fully mature rupings are massive beasts comparable in size to airspeeders and small starfighters, with wingspans meters across and powerful frames that let them carry several riders through the air. They are covered in leathery skin, and their mouths are packed with sharp teeth.
The Beast Riders frequently ride atop these imposing creatures, striking with their spears and other weapons as their mounts carry them into battle at incredible speeds. The bond between rider and mount is a crucial one in the frenzy of a pitched battle, and a skilled rider with a loyal mount is much more likely to survive than a warrior who does not understand his or her steed.
