Ikthe, the predator planet, is nearest the dual suns of the sister planets. A thick atmosphere results in a hot and humid climate on most of the planet’s surface. Luscious greenery overtakes most of the land area. With an impenetrable rain forest canopy, the vegetation beneath festers and rots, creating a rich environment for microbes and scavenging predators. Yet there is an alien beauty to the variety of life that grows unchecked here. No civilization chooses to live here, therefore it is unsullied by pollution or constructs.
