The Sock-Headed Worm People, as Bungo would
later call them in his captain's log,
live on a small planet that rotates around a red giant somewhere
in the vicinity of Sullustan space. Because the planet's axis
is tilted at nearly ninety degrees, the SHWoPs inhabit the narrow
band that straddles the light and dark side of the planet. This
keeps them from frying or, conversely, freezing to death. They
tend to live in small city mounds scattered within this band.
Bungo was lucky to run across a hunting
party astride their mighty and very carnivorous beasts of burden.
