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.

Roseah is a study in contradictions. They move mountains to help Mercurians flee, but disdain them for abandoning their home. A misanthrope who has built the most welcoming Oasis there is on Mercury.
  Roseah is a quiet, strong-looking Mercurian. They are the owner of Oasis, and travel with Penumbra. While Roseah is short with everyone, they are openly disdainful of those who do not appreciate their homeworld, and especially those seek the exploitation of Mercury's natural resources.   They wear a wedding band, but do not speak of their former partner. Fellow Mercurian nomads understand. Among the nomadic people of Mercury there is a belief that the soul is weakened when someone is known only by proxy. Speaking the name of the dead to those who have not met them is seen as ushering them towards the ultimate death.
