System: Arazius

Primary Star: Arazius

Stellar Type: G2V ☼

Companion Star(s): None

Distance from Earth: 382 ly

Constellation: Ursa Minor

Region: Polaris

Population: 2 Billion



The Arazius system is a multi planet system orbiting a g-class star in the Polaris region.  The star is brighter than sol despite being in the same spectral class; this is due to the older age of the Arazius sun.  Arazius contains three inner planets (a super earth, and two gas giants) surrounded by an asteroid belt.  The theory is that planets B and C migrated inward pushing in material close to the star in which planet A formed from.  Planets D and E then formed from the left over material after the inner planets migrated in, leaving the system two asteroid belts.  Beyond the second asteroid belt lies two more gas giants, these planets may not have migrated and are in the same position were they originally formed.  Planet D is the systems primary world.




Arazius A

Arazius A is a seething hot super earth with a thick atmosphere.  The heat of the nearby sun doesn’t allow clouds to form leaving the atmosphere nearly transparent.  Tidal friction causes incredible volcanic activity leaving lakes of molten lava on the surface, which glows red on the night side.







Arazius B

Planet B is dark hot Jupiter orbiting just outside planet a.  Dark sodium clouds crisscross the planet while lighter colored sulfur clouds form higher in the atmosphere.  Like most hot Jupiters the planet has little to offer.






Arazius C

Cooler than planets A and B, though still extremely hot, planet C contains large amounts of yellowish sulfur clouds in the atmosphere.  The clouds turn white near the poles where the temperatures aren’t as hot.  Planet c is the larger of the two inner gas giants and was most likely the first to begin migrating inward, pulling planet b in with it.






Inner Asteroid Belt

The narrow inner asteroid belt formed from material left over after planets b and c migrated in.  The belt is narrower than the main asteroid belt in the sol system but contains about the same number of asteroids.






Arazius D

The primary planet of the Arazius system is the earth like world of Arazius D.  A large population of over 9 billion has grown on this world making the second largest in the Polaris region.  Early the planet contained only a thin oxygen atmosphere and most of its water was trapped in ice in the poles.  Solar mirrors were installed in space to warm up and melt poles turning into a global ocean.  This also helped thicken up the atmosphere allowing more plant life to grow creating more oxygen.






Arazius E

The icy world of Arazius E spends much of its eccentric orbit outside the habitable zone.  The orbit brings it in close enough for liquid water only a short time during the year.  The planet is known for its large seasonal variations.






Outer Asteroid Belt

The second, much wider belt of the system.  This belt contains nearly ten times the amount of material than the inner belt.  Mining operations have been extracting metals from the asteroids for many years.






Arazius F

Arazius F is a hydrogen helium gas giant.  The planet has an extremely fast rotation of only 8 hours causing intense winds.  The planet has a bright set of rings and contains two large moons orbiting it.





Arazius F1


Arazius F1 is a volcanic moon orbiting close to the main planet.  The planet is similar to Jupiter’s moon Io.





Arazius F2


An icy moon orbiting farther out than the first moon.  The moon has a global ocean created from tidal friction located deep below the ice.






Arazius G

The system’s last planet is a cold Saturn sized planet.  The planet sits at temperatures in-between Saturn and Uranus.
