The makrin creeper was a creature that was native to the planet of Makeb. The insect-like creatures appeared to be made up of earth and wood, but in reality, these were parts of their natural camouflage.
During the Galactic War, when the Hutt Cartel took control of the planet Makeb, the Makrin's home planet, some Makrin proved to be formidable opponents against the forces of those who wished to interlope in Makeb's natural beauty. On at least one occasion, an adventurer sold common tree branches, falsely labeling them "Makrin Trophies".
