This page provides a basic outline of each major body in the S'rend'marr system. The system consists of a binary star pairing, with 6 orbiting planetary bodies. The planets are listed in decending order, from closest to the center of the system to farthest away.

S'rendarr

A yellow-orange Ib supergiant (spectral type-M), which provides most of Adhomai's heat, and serves as the system's primary body. It is also an object of great religious significance in the Tajara's two largest religions.

Messa

An abnormal white dwarf (spectral type-B) with a very high magnitude for its size, Messa orbits S'rrendarr at an inclination that is almost parallel compared to other bodies in the system. It orbits close enough to S'rrendarr that its gravitational effects are barely tangible to the other bodies in the system, holding a minor tidal influence at the most. Messa is likewise an object of religious worship in the Tajara's largest religion.

Az'Mar

A class-Y planet with a calcium-oxide shale surface. The atmosphere is mostly neon, with moderate concentrations of helium and argon. The surface is extremely hot, and the shale that the surface is comprised of is very caustic. Az'mar has one small moon, named Sahul, composed primarily of molten metals.

Trid'irra

A small class-Y planet with a sulfuric atmosphere, Trid'irra's surface layer is almost entirely composed of a shallow layer of raw, naturally-formed glass and obsidian. It is speculated that volcanic activity used to be very common on the surface, but only a handful of active volcanoes have been found. Trid'irra has no natural orbital satellites.

Aethalides

A class-K planet with very little atmosphere, Aethalides is comprised mostly of solid common minerals and silicate. The planet's size and mass are comparable to Adhomai's, and the normal surface temperature during the day is around 50°C. While these factors make Aethalides seem like a perfect candidate for mining colonies, its surface pressure is below 5 kPa and the entire planet is bathed in solar radiation. What little atmosphere the planet does have is composed primarily of argon and nitrogen. Aethalides has two moons; a small, white, rocky moon named Mazu, and a larger pale yellow moon named Halni.

Adhomai

See: Adhomai

Krisha

A J-class methane-helium giant that appears blue-white with yellow-ish bands. Krisha has a large asteroid belt orbiting it, and a small red moon, called Vilgani.

Sani'Orios

An I-class supergiant composed of ammonia, with pockets of hydrogen. It appears a deep blue in color, with several darker spots of varying size across its surface. There are no natural satellites orbiting Sani'Orios. Modern astronomy has revealed that Sani'Orios's strong gravitational force causes it to pull in many asteroids and other bodies of mass which might have otherwise gone to Krisha or Adhomai.
