Creature Companions

The solitude of space can prove tough to bear for even the most hardened soloist. It’s no wonder, then, that across the entire galaxy, members of countless species take up creature companions ranging from show pets to emotional support animals to combat-ready mounts. Whether such a pairing is born of cultural tradition, lucky happenstance, or even reluctant necessity, few bonds are stronger.

Silicanid Companions

Source Starfinder #40: Planetfall pg. 61
Silicanids have surged in popularity as pets, especially on worlds outside of the Weydana system. Although they can adapt to most environments, they don't reproduce in captivity, greatly increasing their value. Small breeding populations have been released into the wild on a handful of worlds in Near Space. Silicanids can be found on the black market, where they demand an emperor’s ransom. Starfarers have happened upon silicanids on their adventures, adopting the creatures as companions.
