Welcome to Solaris, traveller! Let me get you up to speed.
Solaris is a soft science fiction webcomic set in our own universe, kind of. Learn more by continuing to read, or click here to be taken to the comic.
Q:Where am I?   You're still in the system known as Sol. Except this time each planet is habitable and developed its own life. The people are humanoid, mostly.
Q:I heard something about a comic?   Oh yes! The main comic is still in development, but you can read the first few pages of Little Blue if you click here.  
Q:What's going on?   Sol is invading. The resentful sun sends its angelic armies: the Scourge. For now, they're being held back at Mercury by Penumbra.

Humanoids are a catch-all term for sapient bipedal beings that vaguely resemble humans. Humanoids are not necessarily related species, but instead an example of covergent evolution.

Humans of the Moons

  Humans are by far the most prolific humanoids in the Sol Systems, despite not being particularly hardy. They are native to the moons, but there is no consensus on which moon exactly.

  The fragile Mori are moth-like people from Mercury. The former denizens of the Sunscrapers are very distinct with their massive white manes, and fluffy feather-like antennae.

  The Kara are a hardy people. They are insectoid, disposed to thick segmented callouses on much of their body.

Fei of Venus

  Venus is inhabited by the plantlike Fei, masters of self-modification. Their striking appearance demands attention, with coloration in all shades of the rainbow. Their breath is toxic to other humanoids, so travelling Fei wear masks to avoid poisoning others.  
Lysa by Annie Stein

Lysa of Mars

  The green Lysa are usually just known as martians. They are known to be hyperliteral, but that's a matter of culture rather than a inate trait.  

Nymphs of the Outer Worlds

Most of the humanoids in the Outer Worlds are known as nymphs. There is debate on whether or not humans are another variant of nymph.

  The Sirenes are ethereal and graceful. Some draw a comparasion to the Seraphs of the Scourge.

  Harpids have a reputation for being shrill. Not all harpids are winged, but the majority are.

Oceanids of Neptune

  Oceanid are one of the nymphs native to Neptune. Oceanids have a natural aptitude for hydrokinesis, which allows them to propulse themselves through the seas despite their lack of hydrodynamic anatomy. Oceanids seem more attuned to mysticism than most, with a far higher rate of precognition than other humanoids.

This article, really grabbed my attention during WorldEmber '22. The clean, simple and vibrant appearance of the article blew me away - who knew articles could look so good with such relatively simple styling?   P.s. I've featured this article in my New Year's Resolutions article <3
