|“The slugs are never wrong, but I suppose there's always a first.”|
|— Gulch, "Grief-Bringer"|
Slugs are a breed of animal appearing in a range of colors.
During a meeting, Gleck hands out purple slugs to the Geckles.
To determine whether or not to go to the truce meeting, the Geckles have a slug race where the brown slug represents refusal while the grey slug represents approval. When the brown slug was close to winning over the very slow grey slug, Zane freezes the slug's track to give it an advantage, eventually managing to help it win. While on the way to the meeting, Gulch has the grey slug on his hand, who became saddened when Gulch said that it might be wrong about the Munce being trustworthy.
As Vania was being crowned Queen of Shintaro, Gulch holds a slug on his elbow.
