Colonial members are a rough lot, barely making out an existence within the small domes and caves that provide them shelter. Beings that grow up within the Liepbahul colonies are extremely strong, capable of doing work that most beings are unable or simply unwilling to do. In exchange for their physical abilities though, most Liepbahuls are technologically backwards. Unable to fly space ships or pilot modern vehicles efficiently, the native population is the butt of many jokes. Pilots enjoy poking fun at the fact that the simple sight of a spaceship for the Liepbahuls is believed to be a bad omen.
Despite the lack of modern technology among the local population, many efforts are under way to establish modern colonies. However, the original efforts were sabotaged by local populations. Additionally, though domes are required for offworlders to live on Liepbahul, the native colonists are able to withstand the cold temperatures for several hours at a time, giving them a great advantage over unwanted visitors. All industrial and civilian efforts are warned to bring adequate security protection against the native population.
