Kaan-Bul (RS 0-5-11113-443-11229-7-368503-613 5) is an E-type planet, home to the Vesqkels. It consists of mainly ocean with 2 major continents, Jopil-Bul (north) and Nakil-Bul

(south). Kaan-Bul has a thick brown, Mars like atmosphere and orbits Chav, a K1 V orange dwarf star. Kaan-Bul has the mass of 3.5 earths, and orbits its star at 0.627 AU. It completes one orbit every 202.4 earth days, and rotates on its axis every 12.5 hours. It has an axial tilt of 76 degrees, and has 1.8x the gravity of earth. Kaan-Bul has 9 moons (2 major moons).


Kaan-Bul has 9 moons, although only two are larger than 140km: Thav and Zhav. Thav is the nearer

moon, and orbits every 1.066 earth days. It is a warm desert with a nearly circular orbit 67,000 km out. The second moon, Zhav, orbits 540,000 km out from Kaan-Bul, and orbits every 24.25 days. It is a temperate selena, similar to earth's moon. It has a medium inclination and eccentricity. Thav appears large in the sky, and cycles through crescent and gibbous throughout the day, never going to full or new phase, however Zhav goes through the phases like the earth's moon.

Physical Appearance

From space, Kaan-Bul appears as a brown, dead ball. However, that is just because of its atmosphere, which resembles mars' atmosphere. However, its surface greatly resembles that of Earth. Because it is pretty cold, Kaan-Bul gets frequent snow on its continents. The surface consists of two major continents and random islands scattered around the planet. Because of its high axial tilt, the sun does not move much throughout the day. As a result, summers, and especially winters, can be deadly.


Kaan-Bul was formed 4.69 billion years ago, along with the rest of the Chav system. It started out as a hot ball of lava, and was heavily bombarded in its early years, which is responsible for its oceans and atmosphere. It captured a body between the size of Mars and Earth when it was about 150 million years old. That body was later hit hard by a luna sized object which split it into Thav and Zhav, and gave Kaan-Bul a ring system, which got destroyed by close encounter with a large asteroid.

From there, Kaan-Bul continued to cool, and oceans started to form, and bombardment slowed down. Plate tectonics kicked in, and the continents drifted around for billions of years. Over those billions of years, groups of organic molecules clumped together to form basic organisms, in a process called Abiogenisis. Eventaually, they evolved into single cell organisms. Gradually, they evolved into multicellular life. From there, life continued to evolve and change, until about 20 million BC, the Vesqkels evolved. There were no major extinction events, as the nearby gas giants disturbed many asteroids and flung them out of the system.


The climate of Kaan-Bul resembles that of Canada. Because of the high axial tilt, seasons are extreme. Clouds are sparse and small, and it does not rain much. Winds are quite strong, sustained speeds of 20mph aren't that rare. The air is 70% oxygen, 20% nitrogen, and 10% CO2. The atmospheric pressure is about 2/5 that of earth, so it's quite thin compared to earth. Because the moons orbit quite close, tides can be extreme, and with 2 moons, they can also be quite weird.
