Sporting a naturally hunched posture with drooping ears and a short snout, a screedreep’s bearing and expression make the creature seem to be waiting for a blow to land. It is perhaps this one feature that best defines the history of this species.
Screedreeps have assimilated well with both technology and magic, although they prefer the predictability of technology to magical enigmas. Practicality and repeatability of experience are important to screedreeps, and they value universal systems. This ethos gives screedreeps something in common with brakims, and brakim technicians who make it to other imperial worlds get along well with screedreep managers. Primarily trained in vocations where a single administrator can oversee a network of personnel, screedreeps thrive in such roles.
Occasionally, failure to perform or poor luck can cause a screedreep to leave a public position—voluntarily or otherwise—and take up independent work. Other displaced screedreeps drift into criminal enterprises, running efficient racketeering operations, smuggling rings, or thieving organizations and eschewing more violent criminal endeavors. Such screedreep “facilitators” work throughout the galaxy, using their wiles to avoid notice. More than one criminal enterprise has a screedreep among its leadership, if not at its head.
Screedreeps stand about 3 feet tall and weigh around 60 pounds. They’re considered adults at 15 and live naturally up to 150 years.
