Parent star is Sah’Vam, a star in the Pleiades cluster. Sah’Vam III is known as the Planet Battephex. The surface of Battephex has rarely been seen by foreigners. The database from a destroyed patrol ship was the first glimpse of this dangerous world for outsiders. What was found was a planet as deadly as the Dinn themselves. The planet is covered with everything from deadly jungles to blisteringly hot deserts. It is geologically inactive, with ancient lava tunnels honeycombing the entire subsurface. The atmosphere is also more dangerous than most Earthlike planets. The only relatively safe places on the planet are the great walled cities... and even then, only safe until you consider that they are full of millions of Dinn.
Dist; 590 light years
33 hour day, 302 day year.
The flora and fauna of Battephex are highly lethal and adaptive. Deadly carnivores and armored toxin spitting herbivores share the razor vine covered jungles with carnivorous and acidic pit trap plants that have a 12 meter wide maw. One Terran politician joked that Battephex must be the ultimate masochist’s vacation spot.
Highly advanced, the Dinn have apparently been space faring since the early 19th century by the Terran calendar. Most Dinn starships are a basic sphere configuration for space travel, or a saucer or wedge design where the ship will be traveling in an atmosphere for extended periods.
Pulse; 50 p/min
Resp; 6 p/min
Atmosphere Req; Thin atmosphere. 73% N2, 15% CO2, 11% O2, 3% O3
Notes; Strict carnivores with a highly efficient metabolism. Shark-like teeth regenerate when lost. Each clawed hand has four digits total, two of them being opposable thumbs. Can survive in a toxic atmosphere for long periods of time.
Reproduction; Sexual. The Dinn female goes into a mating cycle once every fourteen to twenty months. She will violently seek out a mate, succumbing only to the male who can best her in combat. Gestation is 6½ months, and one to three offspring is normal. Offspring are protected by the adults, but generally, left to fend for themselves. Dinn are capable of hunting and killing small prey from the moment they are born.
Aging: Dinn grow to adulthood in a very rapid manner, and do not surrender to the effects of old age for a long time.
