This article is about the creature. You may be looking for the M12-L Kimogila heavy fighter.

The Kimogila was a large reptilian creature, similar to the krayt dragon of Tatooine, that was native to the planet Lok.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A kimogila

Kimogilas were generally about the same size as krayt dragons, but some have argued they were even deadlier. The creature had no known predators on the planet, but had evolved to boast a layer of extremely resilient scales, capable of withstanding all but the strongest anti-personnel weapons. They were also known to have one of the most toxic venom in the galaxy, which could kill ambushed prey in seconds. They were usually known to hunt the roaming herds of Snorbals. With no known predators, however, it is possible that these creatures turned cannibalistic during times when food was short.

They were hard to find creatures, but they usually traveled in small family packs ranging from two to three, and could sometimes become extremely territorial. There was a story that a group of settlers were tricked into buying land not far from the stronghold of Nym, that was infested with Kimogilas. Soon after they settled the land, the Kimogilas destroyed the entire town, earning it the name of Kimogila Town to those who knew of it. Offworlders were sometimes lured by thieves posing as tourist guides, offering the location of a supposedly beautiful hidden oasis for credits, only to be left to their fate as prey to packs of the large creatures.

Their scales were known to be very useful in the construction of armor, especially Reinforced Insulated Sheath armor. The M12-L Kimogila heavy fighter was named after the creature.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Kimogila appeared in the video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online-role playing game developed by Sony and published by LucasArts, prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.
