Biology and AppearanceEdit
The k'lor'slug was a large worm-like creature that possessed a serpentine body propelled by many dangerously-edged legs. The mouth was a gaping circular maw filled with concentric rings of teeth.
K'lor'slugs were carnivorous hunters on their homeworld, possessing keen olfactory and visual senses in addition to a deadly venom. For reproduction, the creatures could lay more than 300 eggs in a single birthing period. When hatched, the young k'lor'slug was immediately ravenous for food. In addition to their aggressiveness, these creatures were considered pests aboard starships. They were known to invade the darkest spots on unsanitary space vehicles and breed. When dealing with more than 300 eggs hatching, an infestation aboard a space vehicle would become harder to control—and more potentially fatal—the longer it was tolerated.
K'lor'slugs were known to the galaxy as early as the time of the Great Galactic War of the Old Republic. Because of their notoriety as an aggressive and deadly species, especially among the spacers who encountered them aboard their starships, they were used as a holomonster playing piece in the popular strategy game, dejarik.
Behind the scenesEdit
The k'lor'slugs in Star Wars: The Old Republic feature a few significant differences with the dejarik piece seen in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In the movie, the face of the k'lor'slug was depicted as rather snake-like, while in the game it's a gaping maw without distinguishable eyes or nostrils.
