What's this?! A new Neimoidian?! (New-moidian?)
Actually, I have a bit of an announcement with this one. I'd been withholding this information for the better part of a month (three months, depending on how you look at it), but since the news "accidentally" broke the other day, when Yakface.com tweeted a picture of the article, I was finally able to announce this. One of the single greatest things that has ever happened to me, and will ever happen, has occurred:
They have named a Neimoidian after me
This is not a joke. There's a bit of a story behind it, but the bottom line is that one of the authors of the article suggested naming one of the unnamed Neimoidians after me, as a tribute. His name is Zill Kartay (see what they did there?), and he's part of the Occupation Council that accompanied Nute Gunray and Rune Haako to Naboo. He has a Wookieepedia article and everything! And if you don't believe me, check out the "Behind the Scenes" information: starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Zill_K…
This is truly one of the greatest honours I've ever been given - to have a Star Wars character, let alone a Neimoidian, named after me. When I was told by Tim and Sander, I almost cried. I've taken to calling Zill "my baby".
Today is also my fourth Neimoidian anniversary, AND, to my knowledge, this is the 200th "Neimoidian" picture on deviantArt. May there be many more happy years of Neimoidians to come <3
Welcome to our happy little corrupt family, Zill!
