As a youngster, Neeporlax was an accomplished Damage Player. He attended the Damage game on Vavatch Orbital prior to the Orbital's destruction during the Idiran-Culture War. At the time he may have been the second best Player in the galaxy and was known for giving his winnings away.
Neeporlax was a gaunt youth. He was diseased, half-blind, incontinent, and albino.
