Seed-partners were small thorn-covered organisms that originated within the tampasi, from the tree-like boras, of the living planet Zonama Sekot. As Sekot's self-proclaimed "children ... cells in my body," the seed-partners would be introduced to a spacer who desired to possess one of Sekot's living ships. If the seed-partners, according to their own desire, attached themselves to the spacer, a ship would be produced by those partners working with a team of Ferroan designers, Langhesi forgers, and giant-like Jentari shapers.
Seed-partners attached themselves to a spacer using a spike, which produced an uncomfortable adhesion, but no wound. Three seed-partners per spacer was the normal outcome of this election process, but in the case of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, fifteen seed partners chose to become part of their new vessel, the Jabitha.
