Home Planet:  Shofar

Affiliation:  Rebellion

Description:  Such a unique planet requires a unique type of creature in order to survive on its surface.  The stubborn telema are the result of billions of years of vicious evolution.  The species has naturally armored skin that allows them to handle the dramatic changes in temperature and gravity.  Their outer armor layers also serve as a regulator for heat and cold loss.

In calling such a planet home the telema are a hardy species.  They require very little nourishment to survive, sleep only a few standard minutes at a time and their skin is impervious to most gunfire.  Their only real vulnerability seems to be a need to go into hibernation every few years even while living away from their homeworld.
