Astrography and planetology[edit]

Dishalu is a member of the Rusadaa Trace. The naval base hosts elements of the 206th Fleet.

Dishalu is a small planet with a thin atmosphere that is only breathable unassisted half a kilometer below sea level. As a consequence all the settlements are build deep in the Gejiu F'har trench. The trench is a massive ten kilometer wide scar that circumnavigates the planet's northern hemisphere. In places the trench is over twenty five kilometers deep. The settlers have carved their cities into the walls of the trench. The rest of Dishalu is a relatively barren planet, with only lichen and mosses living on the surface. The trench supports an extensive ecosystem, with insects and a number of fliers.

They are in great demand and much sought after as companions. The training houses, which all Dishalun's must attend from the age of three until their indenture. As schools, the students are taught skills and disciplines to act as companions, teachers, bodyguards, and advisers to their contractors. Houri are, by contract and culture, forbidden from marrying non-Dishalun's through many contractors do try and retain their companions for life.
