==== (I-I) Cebua ====
(I-I) Cebua is designated the [[mainworld]]. It orbits Adagwa at a mean distance of 0.12 AU (17.9 million km), within the [[habitable zone]]. It has an orbital period of 21 days 17 hours: it is [[tidally locked]] to Adagwa. The axial tilt is 3 degrees. Cebua has a diameter of 6,625 km, a density of 3.89 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.36 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Adagwa cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as [[Thin atmosphere|Thin]], with a mean surface pressure of 0.52 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen (N<sub><small>2</small></sub>), 18% oxygen (O<sub><small>2</small></sub>), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% carbon dioxide (CO<sub><small>2</small></sub>), water vapor (H<sub><small>2</small></sub>O), ozone (O<sub><small>3</small></sub>), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 43% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.4m. Mean surface temperature: 33°C. The [[Fringian_Variant_System_Description#Planetary_Climate|climate]] is rated as Hot and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe.

Cebua, the [[mainworld]], has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally [[hospitable world]] lying in orbital position (II-I) (within the [[Habitable Zone|H+]] region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

No other [[world]] in the [[system]] is known to have native life.
