Chathi is a fluid world with an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids. The system supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Shallows Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Chathi, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Shid.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Chathi is a member of the Vilani Main.

Chalhl is a world with an atmosphere primarily composed of carbon dioxide which has resulted in a runaway greenhouse effect, with base temperatures in excess of 350°C. Despite the excessive heat Chathi has an extensive, though utterly alien, flora which primarily draws its sustenance from traces of fluorine in the atmosphere and soil.

Native Lifeform: Chathian Starspin Protosophont[edit]

Recently the Brethren Uplift Institute (BUI) sent representatives to Chathi to study the mobile plant life known locally as Starspins. Their initial reports would seem to suggest that there is a chance that this species could be uplifted towards true sentience if it were no longer exploited in order to milk ODA2 extract from its root systems.

This viewpoint however, has been rejected by Zia'zak SIA who have publicly stated that the reports lacks concrete proof as to the plant's potential for gaining even a limited level of sentiency.

History and background[edit]

The S'mrii biomedical services phylum Zia'zak have bought the extraction and agricultural rights and currently harvest several important medicines, including a broad-spectrum antiseptic pad which they sell under the trade name of Medi-Plast and Procreanil Patches, a widely used male contraceptive.
