A person employed in the cloth making industry in the Sigourn region of the planet LV-426. The booming manufacture of woolen garments from the area peaked in 1987, before spectaularly disappearing after a severe outbreak of foot and mouth disease in the local sheep population during November of that year.

Weavers at the workhouses were encouraged to shave their heads to reduce the risk of accidents - the traditional mullet hairstyle, popular on the planet earth in the early 1980's, was brought to Sigourn by a band of space actors travelling on the deep space mining ship Nostromo. A spate of accidents were reported in the summer of 1980 when a number of employees were dragged into the machines after becoming entangled by their hair.
