Inhabited by gigantic spider-like carnivores, the caves are overrated. Unless you’re hiding from a hunter that looks like an apex predator out of a movie franchise. Then the caves are slightly more appealing. If Esra can get rid of the current, uh, inhabitants, she’ll be fine. Maybe better than fine.
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.
