Zaalbar joins your party when you and Mission rescue him from the Gamorrean compound in the lower sewers on Taris.

You can't really unlock further dialog by speaking to him, but when you travel to the Wookiee home world Kashyyyk his backstory is revealed, and you can meet his brother Chuundar and father Freyyr.

However, after first entering Rwookrrorro village he's removed from your party until you complete the Chieftain in Need quest, which isn't necessary to get the Star Map on Kashyyyk: this means it's possible for Zaalbar to remain on Kashyyyk for the rest of the game, either by accident or design.

Banter[edit]

Mission may speak to Zaalbar when both are in your party:

KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Hey, Big Z, we've got to do something about your breath. I didn't want to say anything, but it's bad. Worse than usual, which is hard to believe. In fact, now that I think about it, your breath has been pretty rancid ever since we rescued you from those Gamorrean slavers. What did they feed you, buddy?
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: They didn't. I wasn't their guest, Mission. I was a prisoner. I don't think they cared much what happened to me.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Oh, Zaalbar, that's terrible! I know how grouchy you get if you don't get your eight square meals a day. I'm amazed you didn't pass out from hunger.
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: I did manage to take a chunk out of the arm of a guard that wandered too close to my cage. But it tasted awful, so I spit it out.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Ewww! No wonder your breath is so bad, Big Z. Gamorreans smell like bantha poo-doo! We'll have to pick you up a toothbrush to clean that stench out of your choppers.
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: Wookiees do not brush their teeth, Mission! It… it just isn't done! What humiliation will you use on me next? A comb?
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Okay, relax. No toothbrush. Sheesh. Just try to eat something else to cover up that smell, okay? Stay away from anything that's smart enough to lock you in a cage this time.
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: *Sigh* I'll take care of it as soon as I can, Mission. For now, let's stay focused on the task at hand.

Afterward, she may speak to him again:

KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Hey, Big Z. Don't take this the wrong way, but lately I've noticed you're starting to look a little bit scruffy.
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: Scruffy? What are you talking about? I hope you aren't suggesting I take a bath!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: No, I'm not suggesting a bath. I know how well that went over last time. But your hair's getting all tangled. And if you look close, you can see a few gray strands starting to poke through.
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: You're making this up! I groom every day! My hair is not tangled, and it's not going gray!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. She's got a point, Zaalbar. You could use a good makeover. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Zaalbar looks fine to me.
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Don't worry, Big Z. It's nothing I can't fix. A little trim, a splash of coloring and you'll be as good as new. Best-looking Wookiee on the planet. Maybe a nice suit…
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: You don't trim a Wookiee! You don't color a Wookiee! And you certainly don't dress a Wookiee!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: I know Wookiees aren't into the whole clothing thing, but you could start a whole new trend! You'd be on the cutting edge.
KotOR Icon Zaalbar.png Zaalbar: Rargh! Leave me alone!
KotOR Icon Mission.png Mission: Okay, okay. Sheesh. Try to offer some constructive criticism and this is the thanks I get? Let's move on. You can just stay naked and scruffy for all I care.
