Boom is a short, hunched alien with beady little eyes and a hairy face. He’s always bobbing his head and tittering unintelligibly to himself, occasionally saying “boom” out loud. Nobody really knows what a Guudrian is, nor do many know how he became friends with the Duros Krudar. One thing is for certain – Boom loves fire and explosions.
Boom is enchanted by anything bright and flickering (like the flame on his mini-flamer, usually used for lighting cigarras) or loud and explosive. He’s the kind of being who, when he sees or hears an explosion, gets up and runs in that direction rather than taking cover. Boom’s often testing different materials to see if they’ll burn in an entertaining manner – something which usually annoys crew members who are tired of having their instruments, tools, and personal belongings experimentally scorched. Whenever Boom sees anything burning or exploding, he calls “boom, boom” repeatedly in his excitement.
Boom’s fascination is also a good way to tempt him away from his pyrotechnic activities. he’s easily distracted by any new source of fire, including other people’s mini-flamers, p;asma torches, even the slow-burning butts of cigarras. The only other character who generally controls Boom is Krudar, who also serves as his translator. Krudar command crew to allow the little Guudrian aboard, since he seems very proficient at rigging various kinds of explosive devices. Unfortunately, Boom needs to be kept under constant watch by his friend, lest he cause damage to his fellow crewmates in his pursuit of flammable entertainment.
