this creature was native to the planet Ichtor 8, where it was discovered by Imperial scouts who recognized its commercial value. Averaging just over a meter in length, attack stohls are warm-blooded predators whose bodies are covered with a thick pelt of downy-soft fur. Their mouths were studded with sharp fangs, which injected a poison into the bloodstream of their victims. They were considered a petty nuisance by the Imperials, and their curiosity first endeared them to hunters. However, it was soon realized that these slow-moving creatures could be trained as pets. For an extremely high price, a person could own a beautiful stole-like wrapping for their neck, which would attack any being which got too close for personal comfort. The ownership of attack stohls was popularized by Shantee Ree, who owned one and started a campaign to ensure the survival of the species.
