Skittermanders are small, furry, and have six arms. They are native to Vesk-3 and are instinctually helpful. They lack a permanent government, being culturally prone to individualism (though not to anarchy), though technically they have been conquered by the Veskarium and are considered by the Vesk to be a part of the empire.
When creating Skittermander names keep in mind their small statue makes sounds conducive to high pitches common. In addition, longer, rounded vowels are frequently a part of the name’s construction.
