Squibs

Squibs
Squibs are everywhere that junk is to be found. Squib reclamation treaties range from refuse disposal for highly populates worlds (where the squibs are actually paid to take garbage) to deep space combing (where Squib starships focus sensor arrays on empty space in an attempt to locate possibly useful scraps of equipment). In addition, Squibs can be found operating pawn shops and antique stores in many major spaceports, and because of this, Squibs come into contact with almost every civilized planet in the galaxy.

Squib are generally well received, partly because their personalities, though abrasively outgoing, are sincerely amicable, and partly because most other beings underestimate the abilities of the Squib and believe that they are benefiting from the deals that they make with the squib.

Squib are also found serving the Empire, using their natural skills to collect refuse throughout the larger Imperial starships and gather it together for disposal. (Most commanders understand that the Squib will often retain some small part of the collected refuse, and this is an accepted part of the Squib employment contract.)

Story Factors:
Haggling:

Squibs are born to haggle, and once they get started, there is no stopping them. The surest way to lure a Squib into a trap is to give it a chance to make a deal.

Gamemaster Notes:
The relationship between the Squibs and the Imperials is misunderstood by all involved. The Imperials believe the Squibs to be eager, if somewhat obnoxious and frustrating, slaves, while the Squibs believe themselves to be spies, continually informing ships of the Squib Merchandising Consortium fleet of the locations of the garbage dumps which precede most Imperial jumps to hyperspace. Squibs will primarily be used for comic relief in a campaign, but their connections with the galaxy can make them useful in other ways also.
