Raycaon is a planet in the Cledrosia system. It is unique in that it is the closest known planet to the Galactic Core that can support carbon-based life, and it is also a major outpost for the Karalian Empire.

OrbitEdit

Several billion years ago, Raycaon orbited a class G star that has long since went supernova. Raycaon as well as another gas giant, Volgen, have been propelled into space as rogue planets. Because they were near the galactic core, they would eventually get captured by a red supergiant. That star would go supernova after several million years propelling both planets to be captured by another supergiant. The cycle has since continued and life on the planet has adjusted the radical cycle.

GeographyEdit

The entirety of Raycaon is in a perpetual daylight because of the brightness of all the stars in the nearby vicinity. Covering the entire surface is a plant called the Raycaon Titan, an enormous blue plant that repels radiation and solar flares, while life flourishes beneath its canopy. Tall mesas take up the spaces where the Raycaon Titan has not spread. Raycaon mostly consists of high mesas that are randomly scattered throughout. There are no oceans visible, but there are massive underwater caverns deep underground.

EcosystemEdit

Although most animals live underground because of the radiation of the Galactic Core, some have adapted to living on the surface. These creatures drink moisture in the air emitted by the Raycaon Titan and also have metallic exoskeletons that serve as a shield from the radiation. Because these creatures are often hostile, the Vaikan have settled at the top of cliffs with a protective shield from the radiation. The underground oceans are also filled with a variety of fish though very little of these oceans have been explored.

FloraEdit

  • Raycaon Titan - A plant believed to be at least five million years old. It bears similarities to the aspen tree where entire forests can be tied to a single plant.

FaunaEdit

MoonsEdit

The planet also has five small moons. In order from largest to smallest, they are called Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon. Alpha is the only moon that can support life; it is covered in lichens and mosses with underground oceans though no animals with the exception of microbes are known to inhabit it.
