Celius, the second planet in the Aquila system, is normally considered only a ball of rock. The surface of the planet is devoid of any atmosphere, while the crust is pitted by craters of various sizes. It does not seem to have hosted life either in the distant or in the more recent past, making it a dead planet in all respects. During the first phase of colonization Celius and his moons, like every other celestial body present in the system, have been carefully analyzed to determine if they could be considered interesting in a businness, scientific or other respect. However, the analyzes were disheartening; in fact the materials of which the planet is composed are of little value, and the costs necessary to start up suitable extraction plants capable of withstanding the environmental conditions and the transport of the extracted materials towards Palatinus would lead to a profit too low for any corporation, if not even forcing them to work at a loss. At the same time, the composition, orbit and movements of the planet are so predictable that even the scientific community has little interest in studying the planet, which is thus effectively abandoned by the Roman Empire. However, this mediocrity has made the planet extremely interesting for the Persian Empire, which immediately proceeded to install some spy stations, adequately camouflaged, in order to monitor the flow of network data into and from the system, and send the information obtained from it to Ctesiphon . These fully automated installations are camouflaged as simple rock formations, and are arranged around the south pole, as it is the coldest place on the planet, allowing greater longevity to electronic components, given that temperatures in that place never exceed 20 ° C.


The planet is mostly even, and there are not many mountain ranges. Most of the altitudes are derived from the craters, who dot every single point of the surface.

Natural Resources

On the planet there are small quantities of iron and copper, but it's totally devoid of water, rare lands, and many other metals and/or minerals considered useful.
