Ovions lead by Queen Lotay as depicted in Dynamite Entertainment's Battlestar Galactica Annual 2014.

Ovions are insectoid creatures who work the tylium mines of the planet Carillon.

Dynamite Entertainment comics

The Ovions originate from a place other than Carillon, and thus are something of nomads.

Baltar and their queen Lotay agree for the Ovions to work the rich tylium deposits of Carillon, for Baltar did not trust his own people to safeguard the secret of Carillon's wealth from either the Cylons or the Colonials.

For the Ovions, Baltar had them build a gambler's paradise on the planet, in which the den of sin allows none of its victims to lose—except their lives as a food source for the Ovions, for they were on the verge of collapse as a species (Battlestar Galactica Annual 2014).
