Troig was the native language of the Troig species, who hailed from the planet of Pollillus. Because each Troig had at least two heads, the language used the infix sin to separate the two elements of a Troig's personal name. For instance, in the Troig tongue, the name of the Podrace commentator more widely known as Fode and Beed was Fodesinbeed.
Behind the scenes
The Troig language was first mentioned, albeit indirectly, in J.D. Wiker's 2001 Secrets of Tatooine supplement to Wizards of the Coast's Star Wars Roleplaying Game. Although it and several other sources describe the differences between indigenous Troig naming conventions and the simpler names that members of the species used with non-Troigs, Benjamin Harper's Obsessed With Star Wars, a 2008 trivia book, is the first source to explicitly name the language used in such native appellations.
