Seeds of Rebellion
Squibs are known throughout the galaxy for their talents at collecting, trading, and haggling. The uneven distribution of natural resources on their homeworld led early Squibs to compulsively collect and stockpile goods and to develop a maddeningly complex system of barter. But in spite of their penchant for needless complexities when negotiating, Squibs are surprisingly honest in their dealings, following a specific set of rules whenever they bargain with someone. For Squibs, the process of haggling is more important than the end result.
Personality: Squibs are cheerful, curious, and overconfident to the point of egotism. Although these traits make them likable at first, long-term associates often view Squibs as mildly annoying or downright obnoxious. To a Squib, no art form is greater than bargaining, which Squibs view as the highest form of communication, so saying that a Squib bargained well is grand praised indeed.
Physical Description: Squibs are small, rodentlike humanoids with pink skin covered in fur of almost any color, including red, blue, white, or brown. Their eyes are large in relation to their skulls, and this— combined with their large, tufted ears— give the Squib a slightly comical appearance..
Homeworld: Skor II, a pleasant world located in the Outer Rim, is the Squibs’ home planet. Its varied climate and planetary composition causes the planet to have a wide range of natural resources that are each found only in particular regions of the world.
Languages: Squibs soeak, read, and write Squibbian.
Example Names: Ebaree, Veebeedee, Emala, Grees, Macemilian, Sligh, Smileredon
