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.
