Its name, given to it by citizens of the Centrality, came from the rabbitlike Lepi who called it their home. The Flamewind of Oseon often twisted a braid of colorful radiation through the constellation as seen from the asteroids of the Oseon system.
Behind the scenesEdit
The constellation was originally part of a joke created by The Adventures of Lando Calrissian author L. Neil Smith. In Lando Calrissian and the Flamewind of Oseon, Smith writes, "Outside, a braid of raspberry red, lemon yellow, and orange orange twisted through the heavens, across a constellation the locals called the Silly Rabbit." This paragraph refers to advertising for Trix breakfast cereal, whose rabbit mascot would seek out the fruit-flavored food before being told "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids."
