The Lipul are a race of humanoids from the planet Pul. The Lipul have an extra joint in their arms and legs. This makes their motion very unusual to watch. They evolved from a species of prairie lopers who lived by eating the fruit of tall trees. They are covered in fur, and have whiskers on their faces. They have no external ears, and large muzzles. The Lipul have a tendency to stutter words or phrases while they are speaking Basic. They evolved in the relatively low gravity of Pul, and could live to be over 100 years old. Those Lipul who lived on higher-gravity worlds often found it difficult to adjust, and the average life expectancy of a Lipul living off their native world was about 20 years less than normal.
