*Droch在苏格兰盖尔语中是“坏”(bad)的意思,故意译不音译。

Droch
瘴疴虫
  
Homeworld  Nam Chorios[1]
原产地:纳姆乔里奥斯

Average length  5 millimeters[1]
平均体长:5毫米

Distinctions  Life-energy draining parasites, non-sentient early in lifespan
特性:吸食生命能量的寄生虫,在生命早期不具备智慧

Drochs were parasitic insects that burrowed under beings' skin and drank their life energies and intelligence. Their feeding was the source of Death Seed plague.
瘴疴虫是一种寄生昆虫,钻入生物体皮下,吸取寄主的生命能量和智力。它们构成了死种瘟疫的病源。

1. Biology and appearance 生态特征
Though they began life as non-sentient creatures, Droch could gain true sentience after draining enough intelligence from a host. Drochs could mimic the host's electrochemical fields and tissue composition, allowing them to avoid detection by essentially becoming part of the host while drawing life from them. Drochs grew and became more intelligent with each host they killed and larger drochs could absorb life through smaller ones, without having to take a host directly. When exposed to light, they were sluggish and infertile. However, once in darkness, they moved quickly and reproduced at alarming rate.
尽管在生命早期不具备智慧,瘴疴虫从宿主身上吸取足够的智力后,可以获得真正的智慧。瘴疴虫能模仿宿主的电化学场特征和组织构造,从而成为宿主身体的一部分,不知不觉地吸取他们的生命力。瘴疴虫不断生长,每杀死一个宿主,就会变得更具智慧。体型较大的瘴疴虫甚至不必直接寄生在宿主体内,它们可以通过小瘴疴虫吸收小瘴疴虫宿主的生命力。当暴露在光照下时,瘴疴虫会变得行动迟缓,丧失繁殖力。然而,在黑暗环境中,它们行动迅速,繁殖能力极其惊人。

2. History 历史

瘴疴虫

In 702 BBY the Grissmath Dynasty founded a penal colony on Nam Chorios in Meridian Sector and seeded the world with drochs in the hopes that a Death Seed outbreak would wipe out the prisoners. However, sunlight fragmented through the sentient Spook crystals found on Nam Chorios weakened the electrochemical bonds of the drochs. Smaller ones were killed outright by the light, larger ones proved unable to harm their hosts and were harmlessly absorbed by the body as nutrients. A plague never broke out and drochs were only able to grow in the dark.
雅文战役前702年,格里斯马思王朝(Grissmath Dynasty)在默里迪恩星区(Meridian Sector)的纳姆乔里奥斯星(Nam Chorios)建立了囚犯流放地,并在当地播撒瘴疴虫,希望造成死种瘟疫爆发,消灭所有的犯人。然而,纳姆乔里奥斯星上具有智慧的“幽灵水晶”(Spook crystals)散射阳光,削弱了瘴疴虫种群间的电化学联系。小瘴疴虫被光线直接杀死,较大的瘴疴虫失去了伤害宿主的能力,反而被身体吸收,成为无害的养料。瘟疫始终没有爆发,瘴疴虫只能生活在黑暗的角落里。

In 1 ABY, research conducted by the Imperial Department for Epidemic Prevention revealed that vermin on Tatooine were possibly carrying droch eggs. These suspected creatures were all destroyed.[2]
雅文战役后1年,帝国传染病病防治部(Department for Epidemic Prevention)进行的研究表明,塔图因星的有害动物可能带有瘴疴虫卵。这些受到怀疑的生物被全部消灭。

By 13 ABY, one Droch, Dzym, grew to the size and shape of a Human and prepared the drochs for invasion. Dzym could control the other drochs allowing him to start and stop a plague at will. He conspired with Seti Ashgad to start a plague throughout Meridian Sector.
雅文战役后13年,一只瘴疴虫,济姆(Dzym)长到了人类的体型大小,并准备发动瘴疴虫入侵。济姆可以控制其他的瘴疴虫,由此获得了随意控制瘟疫的能力。他与塞蒂·阿什加德(Seti Ashgad)合谋,计划在整个默里迪恩星区制造瘟疫。

The life energy in drochs could be released by eating them, and if eaten in large quantities this could help prolong the eaters life. Hutts ate droch as appetizers. Zubindi Ebsuk was a notable provider of droch foods.
通过食用瘴疴虫,可以释放它们体内的生命能量,而如果食用量足够大,还可以延长食用者的生命。赫特人把瘴疴虫当作开胃小菜。祖宾迪·埃布苏克(Zubindi Ebsuk)是烹饪瘴疴虫食品的著名人士。

3. Behind the scenes 幕后花絮
The Drochs seem to be inspired by Vampires[source?], as they share many traits with them. It should also be noted that author Barbara Hambly had written several vampire stories prior to Planet of Twilight.
瘴疴虫似乎带有吸血鬼的影子,两者带有许多共同的特征。另外,值得注意的是,小说《黄昏星》作者芭芭拉·汉布利(Barbara Hambly)在创作这部小说之前,写过几篇吸血鬼故事。
Never  again  will  a  citizen  of  this  galaxy  watch  a  moonrise  in  quite  the  same  way.  He  will  stare  at  that  moon,  and  remember  that  the  Empire  is  firmly  in  control. ----Grand  Moff  Tarkin
