Surrounded by the illuminations of its seven Lunar Worlds, Chenaga never sees the light of a dawn. Its satellites form a ring that is as much a wall as anything made of more solid stuff. These seven lesser worlds form the 'eclipsys shroud', which blocks any chance for a dawn to break on the world within their embrace.
A world always under the light of a moon, or seven moons truly, is a place perfectly suited to see the rise of beings who find this type of environment ideal. Nocturnal creatures almost find the amount of moonlight too strong. There is one group who cannot get enough of moonlight and it is they who have come to be the dominant society on Chenaga.
