Jovimartian Asteroid Belt

The Jovimartian Asteroid Belt is a large torus-shaped asteroid belt found within the Kinosmo System, between planets Mars and Jupiter. The two planets couldn't decide on naming this asteroid belt since it is shared territory, so they settled on a joint name going in alphabetical order.

This asteroid belt comprises trillions of asteroids, ranging from microns in length to kilometres. Approximately 0.005% of asteroids reach more than a kilometre in width, or about 30 billion asteroids. Because of this, navigation in the belt is surprisingly easy and spacecrafts are almost never damaged while flying all the way through.

History

This asteroid belt has beenthe site of distrust for thousands of years. The jovians and martians are so different as species, with different ideologies, and they rarely get along. Both planets have attempted to take control of the entirety of the belt, causing much conflict over the past few thousand years.

The first major conflict over the belt came four thousand years ago, when jovians were first spreading into space. They attempted to claim part of the belt which was currently under Martian territory, and they were met with swift opposition. The battle, which is now referred to as the First Jovimartian War (of which there are four), which caused the destruction of approximately 30,000 mid-sized asteroids, several millions perishing. The conflict ended with both sides agreeing to co-ownership of the belt, which still stands to this day.

Ecology

The Jovimartian Belt has an extroardinary amount of life, most of which are filter feeders absorbing tiny crystals, rocks, dust and debris in the atmosphere from asteroids crashing into each other. The belt has a large number of mega micro-fauna species, ranging from supreme tardigrades to martian mites. This asteroid belt is known for fostering life of mega proportions, at least compared to their closest relatives.

On the other end of the scale are microfauna. Species of tiny proportions are common here as well, which serve as the base of the various food webs in this belt.

Mega Micro-Fauna

Supreme Tardigrade

A particularly creepy species that is literally a million times larger than its tradition cousins when fully grown. These 50 metre long animals live and feed on asteroids.

Martian Mite

Martian mites are approximately 20 metres long, with small bodies and eight spindly legs. Martian mites are stuff of nightmares for martians, and frequently torment children's dreams.

Yellow Patternback Moth

A moth species with a wingspan of ten metres. These moths have striking patterns on their wings, to make them look larger and more intimidating than they actually are.

Microfauna

Talarot

These six-winged horses are no more than ten centimetres in length. They are a carnivorous species, using razor-sharp teeth to slice the flesh of large animals that don't even notice.

Umbral Ray

A ray species perfectly camouflaged in the darkness of space. These rays are a dark purple yet blend in seemlessly with its environment, only spotted when swimming in front of asteroids.

Ashark

A small chimaera species, no more than a couple inches in length, they feed on various coral that grow on some of the larger asteroids.
