A dipolopod was an insect-like creature that could be used as a beast of burden. Dipolopods had hard green plates, eyeless heads, clawed legs and wicked-looking stingers. They could be ridden with the use of a saddle, but often needed prodding using an electro-prod. They enjoyed eating rotten meat. The Arkanis Academy kept a number of these creatures.
Behind the scenesEdit
Diplopods were created by author Jason Fry as placeholder creatures for the novel The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure, destined to eventually be replaced by happabores as a tie-in to Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. Having grown attached to the creatures, Fry chose to reuse the idea for Servants of the Empire: The Secret Academy.
