3: Triton Moons
18 standard hours
285 local days
Triton was a small, almost lifeless planet in Mayagil sector of the Outer Rim Territories. It was orbited by the three Triton Moons. The moons were nefariously used by many in the the galaxy to describe a dead thing—as dead as a Triton moon, due to the ban of stimulants of any kind.
Triton was an unremarkable planet besides its location at the choke of the several hyperspace routes. It was covered by a hardpan desert expanse baked by sunlight which was reflected yellow.
The Tritonites of this world developed a faith around the writings and teachings of the mysterious Gactimus. Travelers to the moons or the planet were required to tithe away money or possessions to Gactimus, and some spacers were forced to join the mysterious cult.
Behind the scenesEdit
While the moons are often used as an idiom for something dead and lifeless, one of the moons is home to the Tritonite species.
