Verpine are an advanced species of bipedal insectoids. Their thin, sticklike
bodies have awkwardly articulated joints and chitinous shells. Two antennae jut
from the sides of their heads, which have two large eyes and short snouts. The
Verpine live in the Roche asteroid field, using great repulsor shells to keep
occupied asteroids from crashing into each other and to deflect other bits of
space debris. They are innate experts in most fields of technology, and their
childlike fascinations with all types of machinery has served them well. They
hollow out the asteroids for use as colonies, sealing them against space and
filling them with all kinds of technological wonders. The Verpine have
developed into expert starship builders. The Slayn Korpil Corporation, named
for two neighboring Verpine colonies, has been well known and respected since
the days of the Old Republic. It was the Verpine who helped admiral ackbar
design and build the B-Wing starfighters.
