Minion – Mynock
Creatures of the Galaxy
Galactic Oddities – Under the Galactic Empire, society throughout the galaxy has entered a sort of normalcy where adherence to Imperial law supersedes many local customs and traditions. This has been of great benefit to those who rank themselves among the Empire’s preferred citizens, but has pushed those who cannot or will not adjust to the expectations placed upon them to the edges of civilized society. Sometimes this is a literal definition, as many individuals of this sort flock to the less rigidly-controlled Outer Rim Territories to make their lives relatively free from Imperial oversight. The Empire has not fully extended its control to this region of the galaxy, and seems unwilling or unable to completely establish control there, allowing many nooks and crannies to form in which the Alliance and other, more criminal organizations, can conceal themselves.
From Edge of the Empire
Mynocks are disgusting, silicon-based space parasites that survive by latching onto the hulls of starships and feeding off power cables and other vital systems. About a meter long with wings that could be used in atmosphere, they have spread throughout the galaxy by hitching rides on passing starships. They absorb matter and energy from their hosts, which can eventually cause system failure. Mynocks can be found on the surface of several different worlds, although their allergy to helium limits the number of habitats in which they can survive.
