Bendis (RS 8474-694-7-16434-83 A9 in Space Engine 0.9.8.0) is ninth planet of Zagrei Prime,Zagrei System and fifth planet to be colonized by humans. Once a frozen T-class world, now is an temperate E-class world. It is homeworld of Nives, an flying amphibious human subspecies.
Physical and orbital characteristics
Bendis orbit Zagrei Prime in 37.687 earth years at a distance of 11.20 a eccentricity of 0.032 and an inclination of -1°16'17''.94. A day on Bendis last 17h51m16s.08. It weights 1.5728 M⊕ and has a radius of 1.4595 R⊕. It has an average density of 2.8143 g/cm^3 and a gravity of 0.73836 g.
Bendis experiences a seasonal cycle similar to that of Earth, axial tilt being 23°21'11''.79. Colossal fussion nuclear power plants,maintaned by robotic drones, keep an average temperature of 25.664°C. Because Bendis have only one continent, there are many interior icy deserts on Bendis in which temperatures can get so as -115.37 °C.
Before terraforming, it has a thin atmosphere of 0.135 atm consisted of 99.6 % N2,0.184 % Ar,0.157 % carbon monoxide and traces of helium and neon. After terraforming, it has now a thick atmosphere (1.98) of 70.35 % nitrogen, 11.11 % oxygen, 18 % neon and 0.54 carbon dioxide.
Bendis was the fifth colony to be estabilished by humans in Zagrei System in 3190. Terraforming last longer than on other world of this system,being completed in 3567 . The early colonists have genitically modified themselves to be amphibious and flying, adopted traits such hollow bones, a pair of wings and thicker fat tissue than baseline humans. Like other colonies of Zagrei System it was under control of Brotherhood of Zalmoxes after First Galactic War and its reunification with Confederacy of Humanity.
Bendis has a population of 9 millions Nives. They lived in and around great lakes of Bendis. Nives are tall, slender, pall skinned and have big slanted bluish green eyes and blonde,red or purple hair. Nives live in a mathiarchal society, all leadership are occupied by elderly women.

Bendis is now a popular tourist destination because her location in Milky Way,her seven major moons and her large ring system.
