Armina is a small O-Class world around a dim red dwarf star in the Galvania galaxy. Although no landmasses exist, the global ocean is home to thousands of species. It has three moons; all of them are asteroids.
Life & Climate
Its climate is driven by the heat the day side gains, which powers a large hurricane. Between the day and night side sits the terminator zone; a narrow band of warm temperatures stretching from pole to pole.
Large animals in Armina's ocean remains scarce, but they tend to congregate near gigantic forests. These forests are made up of extremely tall and strong stalks, branching out with tentacles and bioluminescent lights. They have large leaves that float on the surface of the water, where small insects nest. Animals are drawn to these forests as they produce a powerful, disgusting smell.
Small, fish-like creatures swim around in large gatherings, feeding off microbes and corpses. The larger animals includes a whale-like creature with green, bioluminescent blotches on its skin. These blotches serve as another source of energy for insects.
The night sky offers wonderous sights of the galaxy's disc and some of the closest galactic neighbours. Armina's galaxy sits within the Virgo Cluster about 56 million light years from Earth. Some red nebulas, hundreds of light years away, can also be seen.
Armina formed out of a small disc of dust and gas surrounding its younger sun, Gogan, about 3.6 billion years ago. Its moons are believed to have formed with the planet as it gathered dust into a small ring system.
On a cosmic scale, it only recently developed complex life - about 300 million years ago. Tiny microbes first appeared rather quickly after the planet's formation.
The planet has never developed intelligent life, but was briefly visited by a young civilisation a few light years away. Many centuries later, the Taans visited again and established a small colony.
