The Moochers were a race of small, sapient creatures which inhabited the spaceport cities of the planet Abregado-rae. Resembling large, fur-covered lizards, they roamed the spaceports looking for handouts from visitors to the planet. Many beings on the planet considered the Moochers to be nuisances, primarily because there were so many of them.
Moochers lived in dens of several thousand individuals, all birthed by the same queen. This queen was incredibly intelligent, much smarter than any of her offspring. Those Moochers who disappointed the queen were expelled, and often formed their own dens. It was these wild Moochers who were most often encountered near the spaceports.
