Mikhid supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. This is a cold world with an overall climate is at the lower temperature range of human-congruous sophont endurance. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Laraa Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Mikhid, 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. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. During the Long Night this world was named Nuuam Vlaiish.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Mikhid is a member of the Sylean Main.

Even at best Mikhid is a hostile world. It is the inner satellite of an extremely large gas giant which in turn orbits a tiny red main sequence star. The world actually receives more energy from the gas giant than it does from the system primary. The world is bathed in intense radiation and the dangerous background levels give the atmosphere its taint. Mikhid is, by human standards, frigidly cold but still supports a vast amount of life.

Native Sophont: Mikhidian Protosophont[edit]

Mikhid supports an emerging semi-sophont race know as Mikhidians.

History and background[edit]

Mikhidians have been genetically advanced over the last 750 years as part of the Brethren Uplift Institute Xeno-programme. This consists of assisting potential races towards full sentience. The IISS maintain a clandestine base on the world to observer the Mikhidians. Because the Mikhidians are not yet classified as truly sentient they are not included in the worlds population.
