"Limm Kwessence" announced the tortoise-like HiHedrin of the court. Limm Kwessence eyed the scene. A mission of mercy they called it, a pest-control job at best. The Quaffids of Ord Mendel were reknowned for their decadence and the scene before him reinforced how self-absorbed the dynasty had become. Lobites crawled everywhere, their purple, scaly bodies coiling round even the feet of the Viceroy. Kwessence acted swiftly, pulling a lightnet from his belt, activating the gleaming metal pack and teleporting the parasitic creatures to a far plain on the other side of the planet.
