Skin color: Brown, yellow
Hair color: Black
Eye color: Red
Distinctions: Large eyes, extending necks
Homeworld: Brodo Asogi
Attribute Dice: 14D
Extendable Neck and Legs: Asogians have extending legs and necks, which enable them to become taller or shorter.
Telepathy: An Asogian character can communicate telepathically another Asogian within 20 meters. Anyone wishing to resist this telepathic contact must succeed in an opposed Perception check against the Asogian in question.
Glowing Organs: Asogians have glowing fingers and chests, which they are able to turn on and off at will. This is used to aid in expressing emotions, but does mean that they find it more difficult to deceive others (-1D to Con).
Force-users: Asogians are one of the many species in the galaxy that have a high number of Force-sensitives. It was thought of as a birth-defect in Asogian culture not to be born with the Force.
Description: Asogians were paddle-footed, large-eyed sentients indigenous to Brodo Asogi. During the last decades of the Galactic Republic, the Asogians were represented in the Galactic Senate by Senator Grebleips and a trio of aides. When the Republic became the Galactic Empire at the conclusion of the Clone Wars, Grebleips was charged with treason, and the Asogians' home planet became a part of the autocratic new government. More than twenty years later, during the Galactic Civil War that pitted the Empire against the Alliance to Restore the Republic, an Asogian infochant named Braxas operated on the Outer Rim planet of Solay.
Biology and appearance
Asogians were paddle-footed sentients, small-sized and squat, with long arms that could touch the ground as they walked. Their hands ended in four long fingers. Their head, dominated by two large eyes, was perched atop an extensible neck. Some Asogians had brown, completely hairless skin, while others were yellow-skinned with scattered black hair on the head. Possible eye colors included blue and red.
Society and culture
Like many other species, including the reptilian Anx of Gravlex Med, and the furry Togorians of Togoria, the Asogians routinely went about their business unclothed. They used grub-sticks as eating utensils, and at least some of them consumed meat.
The physical appearance of the PK-series worker droid was modeled on that of the Asogians.
The Asogians hailed from Brodo Asogi, a planet located in the Perinn sector of the Outer Rim Territories. At some point, they joined the Galactic Republic, the democratic union that governed most of the galaxy.
Asogians in the galaxy
By 33 BBY, the Asogians were represented in the Galactic Senate of the Republic by Senator Grebleips and three aides. Before the onslaught of the Clone Wars in 22 BBY, Grebleips notably declared his intention to fund an extra-galactic expedition project. At the end of the war, the Supreme Chancellor of the Republic Palpatine transformed the existing regime into the First Galactic Empire, with himself as Emperor. The Asogian Grebleips and sixty-two other delegates were charged with conspiracy and treason for helping plot the so-called revolt of the Jedi Order against Palpatine. Like countless other planets, the homeworld of the Asogians fell into the Galactic Empire's hands.
During the Galactic Civil War between the Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic, a disabled Asogian named Braxas made a career as an infochant on the planet of Solay, in the Dominus sector of the Outer Rim Territories. When the Galactic Empire seized Solay, the Asogian decided to leave the planet. Braxas then hired Luke Skywalker, a young hero of the Alliance and a skilled pilot, to transport him offworld.
