The lifeforms of Tkowes have evolved with four layers of skin to add extra protection from the cold environment. Two major landmasses on the planet are covered with a thick layer of ice. The planet shows signs of early heavy bombardment even now, with the deepest impact crater being a lake on the largest continent.
