I think we've got something, sir. The report is only a fragment from a probe droid in the Hoth system, but it's the best lead we've had.

"We don't serve your type either."
"What type are you referring to?"
"Conduit worms."
Borkus and Meebur Gascon[src]

Conduit worms were non-sentient, parasitic worms native to the planet Coruscant that fed on electricity. They absorbed components as they grew along the ecumenopolis' electrical conduits, turning them into organs. The name "condit worm" could also be used as an insult, akin to calling someone a "little parasite."

Biology and appearanceEdit

Non-sentient, conduit worms fed off the electricity of buildings and starships. These parasitic worms absorbed components,[1] such as batteries,[2] as they grew along electrical conduits,[1] which were then turned into organs. They had eye threads and resistor segments, as well as capacitor beads to store energy,[2] extending from body core segments.[1] A conduit worm's feeler threads could grow hundreds of meters long, and mouth cups often grew at their ends.[2]


Conduit worms were known to sneak aboard ships and eat their electrical wiring while the vessel was still in flight.[3]

Conduit worms in the galaxyEdit

"That dirty conduit worm."
Merei Spanjaf, on Janus Fhurek[src]

Thousands of years of urbanization on the planet Coruscant led to the evolution of many unique forms of wildlife in the underworld, including conduit worms. They grew around their homeworld's endless power cables and absorbed their components.[2]

Their name was also used as a derogatory term,[4][5] akin to calling someone a "little parasite."[6]

Behind the scenesEdit

Conduit worms were first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in "Missing in Action,"[4] the twelfth episode of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' fifth season, which originally aired on January 5, 2013.[7] They were first canonically depicted in the 2015 reference book Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know.[8] Conduit worms were originally created for Star Wars: Attack of the Clones The Visual Dictionary, a 2002 Star Wars Legends reference book written by David West Reynolds.[9]
