StarWTF!? Episode 27: Life Debt

When I say Life Debt, you instantly think of Wookiees, right? Well there's another Life Debt in the Star Wars universe that we all seem to have forgotten... JAR JAR!

In this episode we discuss all kinds of Life Debts in Star Wars and even throughout general television and film. We discuss why Chewie and Han should have just been friends, and who we would want to owe us a Life Debt. Fun stuff!

The life debt was a social institution found in many honor-bound cultures throughout the galaxy, including the Wookiees, Trandoshans, Gungans, Noghri, Talz, and Srrors'tok. To summarize, if a person's life was saved by another, the saved person was obligated to pledge their life to protecting and looking after their savior, even to the point of sacrificing their own life, if necessary.
