The slugs are an intelligent species of symbiotic invertebrates. They live among the nestbuilders, a post-intelligent arthropod-like species, and can be found living amongst the folds of nestbuilder exoskeletons. They can control their hosts directly through tendrils linked to the nestbuilders' nervous systems.
Thanks to their symbiosis with the nestbuilders, which are not themselves intelligent and thus of little interest to the Inhibitors, the slugs were able to evade the Inhibitors for much of their history.
