The Lepi were a species of tall, furred lagomorphs which was native to the planet Coachelle I. The Lepi were a carnivorus race, distinguished by their large incisors and the various colors of their fur, which ranged from green to dark blue. Despite their appearance, the Lepi were a technologically-advanced race, having achieved spaceflight and colonized the five planets in the system and the neighboring asteroid belt. Lepi were considered sexually mature at just ten years of age, and females often gave birth to litters of three dozen or more offspring, resulting in a swift growth in their population. This growth spurred on the development of their space-travel technology, as colony worlds were seen as a response to overpopulation of Coachelle I. Individual Lepi were known for their increased metabolism, a trait that often manifested itself as hyper-activity.
