Oompa Loompa, Lesser Servitor Race. "The Oompa Loompas all adore it. It makes them tiddly. Listen! You can hear them in there now, whooping it up." Shrieks of laughter and snatches of singing could be heard coming through the closed door. "They’re drunk as lords,” said Mr. Wonka. — Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
The Oompa Loompas are a terrestrial race that serve primarily Wonka. Locked in the timeless depths of the Chocolate Factory, their alien, arrogant lives are festively beautiful, unbelievably cruel, effectively immortal. They come together to mate or to worship Great Wonka, but do not crave touching or being touched as humans do. They are a candied race, unknown in mundane environments, and globally have many hidden cities, all hidden within candy factories. One is in Pennsylvania, near Hershey.
Some Oompa Loompas interact with humans. They appear to have a sugared lust to produce human/Oompa Loompa hybrids. The reason may lie in the breeding cycle of these beings, of which little is known. Oompa Loompas may be worshiped by humans with whom they regularly interbreed, for Oompa Loompas are immortal, unless slain, and so are any hybrid offspring. Typically, hybrids inhabit remote independent candy shops.
Such a hybrid begins life as a human-looking child who gradually becomes shorter and stranger. Suddenly, over a period of a few months, the human undergoes a monstrous transformation into an Oompa Loompa. The changeover usually takes place at the age of 1d20+20 years, but some individuals change earlier or later, or only partially. Pity the partial changes, for they find no solace in either world.
