Story Factors:
Innocence:

The Porpi haven't had much exposure to the galaxy or its ways and as such are largely naive about the way that things really work. They are gullible about a great many things and genuinely want to help people or believe that people are inherently good.

Enslaved:
The Porpi have suffered great abuse at the hands of the Empire and other slave related races, as a result their population is somewhat diminished.

Jedi Respect:
The Porpi, due to their innocent and good nature, have a deep respect for Jedi Knights and the Force. They almost always yield to the commands of a Jedi Knight (or a being that represents itself believably as a Jedi). Naturally, they are enemies of the enemies of Jedi (or those who impersonate Jedi).
