- "The jungle world of Troiken hosts the indictidile, a spiked insect that curls into a ball and impales its prey by rolling through the undergrowth."
- ―Jedi Master Bowspritz's notes from The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force
The Troiken indictidile was a predatory, non-sentient insect species native to the jungle planet Troiken. They curled into a ball and rolled through undergrowth in order to impale prey on the irregularly shaped spikes that covered their long, thin bodies. The insects had black skin and an orange eye located at one end of their body.
The Tynnan Bowspritz, who served as both a Jedi Master and a biologist, included information about indictidiles in the "Galactic Bestiary" chapter of The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force, a book given to students of the Jedi Order that was published around the year 990 BBY.
Behind the scenes
The Troiken indictidile was featured in The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force, a book written by Daniel Wallace that was released in 2013. The book included an illustration of an indictidile drawn by artist Derek Thompson.
