Sikhe is a planet that orbits the star Khaira, in the Triangulum Galaxy. It is the Sethaleya homeworld.

CharacteristicsEdit

Sikhe orbits 1.53AUs from Khaira. It is a garden planet.

SizeEdit

With a mass of around 0.8 Earth masses and a diameter of 13,000 km, Sikhe has three-quarters the density of Earth. Its surface gravity is 0.77g.

DynamicsEdit

The planet takes around 618 Earth days to orbit its sun. Due to the lack of a large moon, it has short 15.3 hour days and a minimal axial tilt of 3.6 degrees.

CompositionEdit

The crust of Sikhe is 50.1% oxygen, 26.7% silicon, 7.5% aluminium, 6% iron, 3.4% titanium, 2.5% calcium, 2.1% magnesium, and the remainder other elements.

SurfaceEdit

54% of Sikhe's surface is covered by ocean. 41% of its land area is covered by forest. It has no ice caps.

AtmosphereEdit

The atmosphere of Sikhe is 73.5% nitrogen, 26.3% oxygen, 0.2% argon, and the remainder other gases. The average pressure at sea level is 970 millibars.

SatellitesEdit

Two small moons orbit Sikhe, both captured asteroids. Thatak is an elongated shape, 20 km long, and orbiting 120,000 km from the planet. Velenov is 60 km in diameter and orbits 270,000 km away.

There are several space stations in high orbit, and three space elevators.

EcosphereEdit

Sikhe's ecosphere is reasonably biodiverse. Enormous forests of thrash-trees and bud-firs cover much the continents. The many mountains tend to also be well inhabited.

InhabitantsEdit

This is the homeworld of the Sethaleya. The nine tribes all originated here, and their capitals still remain, now sprawling cities of millions. The Sethyus capital, Ileva, is the largest of all. There are around three billion Sethaleya on Sikhe.
