"One of my dronemates once gave me an excuse, listing the reasons they couldn't protect the queen when our nest was attacked by the Hueche. Do you know what I did? […] I ripped off their head and feasted on their ganglia. […] They were delicious."

A Colicoid dronemate of the Colicoid Nihil Storm Jinnix lived during the High Republic Era.[2] Sometime prior to 232 BBY,[1] the carnivorous Hueche species raided their nest, and the dronemate failed to protect the queen. When the dronemate explained the reasons they could not protect the queen to Jinnix, he ripped off their head and ate their ganglia. According to Jinnix, his dronemate was delicious. During a Nihil raid, Jinnix recounted eating his dronemate to his Strike, Towl, when Towl made excuses for underperforming.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Jinnix's dronmate was mentioned in a flashback sequence in the 2021 audio drama The High Republic: Tempest Runner, written by Cavan Scott.[2]
