Prometheus is a titanoid-class world in the Proxima Centauri star system, and the homeworld of the Prometheans. It is a frigid world with a liquid solvent cycle of ammonia-suspended hydrocarbons, which pool in the ancient craters on the surface. Prometheus hosts a thriving biosphere of partially silicon-based organisms, among them a sophont species capable of interstellar spaceflight.
Fauna & Flora
Prometheus is home to the Promethigenid group of organisms, which are primarily characterized by their mixed carbon-silicon biochemical basis and heavy reliance on sound and infrared senses. These include bioluminescent autotrophs, pack-hunting aerial predators, and a single sophont species: the Prometheans.
