"The shaping of this world is my honor, and my task! Until that work is done, every living thing in this stellar system answers to my will–even the Fleet! Even the World Brain! If I choose to call this world mine, who dares argue?"
―High Master Shaper Ch'Gang Hool

Ch'Gang Hool was the High Master Shaper in charge of the world-shaping of Coruscant to Yuuzhan'tar. He was tasked with growing the twelve dhuryam, and supervising which one would become the World Brain.


Ch'Gang Hool was arrogant and proud, confident of the superiority of the Shaper caste and his own skills. High Prefect Yoog Skell, however, felt Hool's talents were considerably less than his ego, and always suspected that Hool was responsible for the failed escalation of one of his subordinates, Fal Tivvik.

In charge of the Seedship and the shaping of Yuuzhan'tar, he lorded himself over his fellows. Initially he was reluctant to allow Jacen Solo onto a slave detail for one of the twelve dhuryams but he was dissuaded by Vergere and Nom Anor, who were conducting their own project involving the captured Jedi. His fear was justified when Solo armored himself with amphistaffs and butchered the other eleven dhuryams, along with hundreds of warriors. Solo then set free the slaves on the surface of Hool's subject planet.

Hool ordered Executor Nom Anor to track down Solo and put an end to him. Thousands of warriors were airdropped over the fleeing Jedi and only through the use of explosive Dark side powers was Jacen able to escape, much to the horror of the Master Shaper.

Ch'Gang Hool was later present at the Duel at the Well of the World Brain, where Jedi Knight Ganner Rhysode held off hundreds of warriors sent to stop Solo's sabotaging of the World Brain. It was too late, however, and with Rhysode's heroic sacrifice the heretic movement picked up strength and the World Brain was corrupted.

The master shaper was quickly out of his depth with the renegade dhuryam, as it engineered faults across the captured Coruscant, albeit minor ones. This only fueled the heresy spreading through the bowels of the planet; that the Yuuzhan Vong had been abandoned by their gods. When the Supreme Overlord himself, Shimrra Jamaane, arrived on Yuuzhan'tar, Hool was present at the huge ceremony held to welcome the Dread Lord. When asked of his progress in bioforming the planet, Ch'Gang Hool watered down his report, remarking offhandedly that the only noticeable problem was an itching plague, and that any high caste Yuuzhan Vong was capable of enduring it.

Unfortunately for Hool, Shimrra had noticed the master shaper scratching his itch throughout the ceremony, and revealed himself to be more informed of the problems than Hool had realized. Presumably through Onimi's subtle machinations in the Force, the crowds were whipped into a frenzy, soon clamoring for the scapegoat's death. Shimrra delivered his judgment and Ch'Gang Hool was dragged away to his death.
