History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Nightrim Subsector of Reaver's Deep Sector in the Domain of Ilelish.

Native Lifeform: Saint George's Dragon[edit]

The dominant native animal of St. George is, of course, a "dragon." Lizard-like in appearance but bearing live young, these feisty animals can spit a fluid that catches fire in the hydrogen atmosphere of the planet. The resemblance was too good to pass up for the original colonists, one of whom fancied himself an expert on ancient Terran legends.

Native Lifeform: Kesternet Plant[edit]

The Anagathic Kesternet plant, which grows only on St. George, is an important ingredient of anagathics drugs.

Other Data[edit]

Non-canon: With a mean surface temperature of -5°Celsius and a heavy volcanic sulphur taint St George is far from being a tourist destination.

  • Much of the 35 billion population of the system is housed in orbital complexes, safe from the insidious sulphuric atmosphere.
