This is the homeworld of the Scanian, a Human Chimera. They are 60% of the world's population. This is the homeworld of the Aquan, a Human Chimera. They are 30% of the world's population. During the Long Night this world was named Nigiamush.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Due to the extreme cold and gravity most visitors find it necessary to wear Environment Suits during their stay. These suits increase body temperature to species normal while giving support against the effects of gravity and water. These suits, known as 'Exos' can be hired from the starport or from your hotel. Cost is generally about Cr3 per day.

The naval base hosts elements of the 159th Fleet.
