Known also as the Junk World, Lotho Minor is one of the galaxy's dumping grounds. The surface of the planet is covered with refuse, piled over countless generations so that enormous heaps of trash stand as tall as mountains. As the ancient maxim goes, one being's refuse is another's treasure: salvage operations dig through the planet-wide junkyard, looking to reclaim and recondition reusable or obsolete machinery. Huge pools of toxic sludge and the periodic bursts of acid rain make the ruined ecosystem one of the most dangerous in the galaxy.
No one is quite sure of the origins of the mysterious natives of Lotho Minor, the Junkers. The planet's role as a galactic dumping ground has not encouraged any deep exploration of Junker culture or biology, nor has their violent territoriality. They appear to be a strange hybrid of organic life and mechanical debris. The Junkers live off the scrap found on the planet's surface, augmenting their strange and twisted bodies with cybernetic enhancements. They have lived on Lotho Minor for so long that it is impossible to tell where their bodies end and where the refuse begins.
Morley believed in self-preservation. As a serpentine Anacondan eking out a life on the junk planet of Lotho Minor, Morley needed cunning to survive. He would do anything to survive, including cutting a deal with a devilish outcast. When Savage Opress arrived on Lotho Minor, Morley served as his slithering guide through the numerous dangers of the garbage planet, leading the dark warrior to his long-lost brother.
