The Verpine are a hermaphroditic insectoid species whose affinity for technology is recognized far and wide. While their origins continue to be speculated upon by exobiologists the galaxy over, they are nonetheless considered native to the Roche Asteroid Field – a dense cluster of asteroids that orbit the Roche system’s sun in an uncannily orderly fashion. As such, Verpine start the game with an increased Mechanics skill. They are also capable of seeing tiny, even microscopic details in objects, as well as being able to hear and produce radio waves, allowing them to naturally communicate of vast distances. Verpine can be found in the Strongholds of Resistance sourcebook.
