Twylo’s wide desert areas feature a unique native species, the sand dollars, which are an ergivorous life-form. They use the harsh light of Twylo’s primary to fuel an electrochemical reaction, freeing oxygen from various oxides in the soil. In effect, the sand dollars “eat rust,” using the liberated heavy elements in their metabolism and releasing free oxygen into the air. The natural process of oxidation is therefore offset by the metabolism of hundreds of billions of sand dollars.

History & Background (Dossier)
Twylo is a poor but important, high-population world located within Capella Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The mainworld has two small moons. Twylo is a member of the Solomani Confederation and contains a Confederation naval base.
Twylo is the subsector capital and the highest population world in the subsector. The bulk of the population lives in vast urban hives, clustered around the infrequent lakes and seas. Twylo is one of the Confederation’s busiest producers of heavy industrial equipment, vehicles, and starships.
Twylo society suffers from severe economic inequality, which has led to considerable social unrest. The recent "Twylo Renaissance" has resulted in a series of reforms intended to improve the destablizing conditions.
