The Ugnaughts were porcine humanoids with slightly upturned noses from the planet Gentes. Compared to baseline humans, their height would be considered short or dwarfed. Ugnaughts were industrious and loyal workers with a rich oral tradition. They were quite hardy, able to withstand long periods of discomfort, and lived around two hundred years.
Ugnaughts were ruled by elected terend councils, which were led by elected ufflor officers. Ugnaughts lived in accordance with their “blood profession,” with Ugnaught parents teaching their children their trade. Infant Ugnaughts were known as Ugletts. If the number of new Ugnaughts in a given profession exceeded the number needed, a blood duel was called. When the Ugnaughts reached their twentieth year of age, these fights were held to the death, with the victor winning the right to inherit their blood profession. Despite this outdated and violent custom, the Ugnaughts were generally a peaceful people with a rich culture.
When greeting an Ugnaught, it was advised to bow silently, then wait for a guttural purring as a positive response. Usage of the common galactic greeting “yaa-yaah” was considered a personal insult to Ugnaughts. If this occurred, it was advisable to duck and cover, as various mechanical implements would be thrown one’s way.
