Wogg the Tusker

The stereotype among Gamorreans is that they have dark green skin, porcine features and brutish personalities. Wogg the Tusker differs from that image in at least three ways. For one thing, he has pinkish skin. For another, he is an introspective, pacifistic soul, one who respects all forms of life and wishes to see them live together in harmony. Finally, he is sensitive to that mysterious energy field known as the Force.

Wogg's Dwelling
This unusual Gamorrean lives in a crude mud hut. Inside it he has built a rough bed, a hearth and a desk at which to write about his musings. A stout post rises up through the center of it, a skin covers the doorway, and a hole in the roof provides ventilation. Around the outside of the hut he has built a fence for containing the watch-beasts that he raises—a male, three females and six young.

Wogg the Tusker has always been an anomaly. When other boars around him delighted in fighting each other, he preferred to contemplate the mysteries of the natural world. This led him to seek the solitude of the local forest, where he makes a living by raising watch-beasts for sale to his former fellows and offworlders. What few know is that Wogg was in love with Matron Orrza of the Moorb Clan, and that she loved him, too. Because he was not a suitable mate according to Gamorrean standards, however, she let him go into exile rather than appear to be weak.

Using Wogg the Tusker in an Edge of the Empire Campaign
This character can be incorporated into an Edge of the Empire campaign in many different ways; a few of the possibilities are detailed here.
  • Wogg can act as a different kind of teacher for Force-sensitive characters, one who is unusual but effective. They could meet him during a fair at the Moorb clanhold, or perhaps while seeking him directly.
  • A Hutt crimelord could hire the PCs to pick up a load of watch-beasts for delivery to another world, making for an interesting flight.
  • When a rival boar learns of Wogg's love for his clan Matron, that Gamorrean warrior calls for an honor duel to the death. She, in turn, might recruit the PCs to help settle the matter in a way that prevents bloodshed.
  • If Imperial forces ever learned of Wogg's Force sensitivity, they might take steps to eliminate him.
