"Verpine choral arrangements. They don't sing, they just rub their legs together!"
Sabine Wren, in her personal journal[src]

The Verpine were an insectoid sentient species that controlled Roche Hive.

Biology and appearanceEdit

The Verpine[1] were an insectoid sentient species with green skin. Bipedal, they had a pair of digitigrade legs that terminated in two-toed feet and a pair of[2] saw-blade[4] arms that ended in three-fingered hands.[2] A Verpine's head sat atop a long neck and featured a pair of antenna, two black eyes,[2] and mouthparts.[4]

Society and cultureEdit

The Verpine were a hive-based species.[3] Instead of singing, they rubbed their legs together to produce choral arrangements[1] and communicated by chattering. Verpine displayed affection by rubbing their mouthparts together.[4]

They were the namesake of the cruciform Verpine ratchet.[5]

Verpine in the galaxyEdit

The Verpine-controlled Roche Hive manufactured the 8D-series smelter droid.[3]

By the year 4 BBY,[6] a Verpine known as Effor worked at an gladiatorial arena.[2] In 5 ABY, a pair of Verpine New Republic advisors were loudly arguing at a table at Izzik's, a restaurant located in Nakadia's planetary capital of Quarrow, prior to the first convening of the Galactic Senate at the Quarrow Senate house. They were later leaning over a different table, lustily rubbing their mouthparts together.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Verpine were first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in Star Wars Rebels: Sabine My Rebel Sketchbook, a young readers book written by Daniel Wallace[1] and released on February 3, 2015.[7] They were originally created for Star Wars 7: New Planets, New Perils!, the seventh issue of the Legends Star Wars comic series published by Marvel Comics,[8] which was first published on October 11, 1977.[9]
