A short humanoid species, Squats range from 3 to 4 feet in height and are usually just as stocky. They develop similar to humans and live about as long.
Squats are expert miners, and developed technologies that allowed them to get better and better at extracting minerals and precious ores. The Squats are responsible for much of the galactic economy, as well as the destruction of over a dozen planets.
Nova Gamma was initially one of there mining worlds, but like many of there endeavours, the squats gave up once the planet had been stripped of it’s minerals.
