The prosapia system is a binary star system in which resides Prosapia-1 and Prosapia-2, around whom orbits three solid planets and one gas giant. Two of those solid planets contain life, and sentient, multicellular life at that: Genia and Crixare, containing Genians and Crixeraks respectively. The other two planets are Marcos Pi, a small solid planetoid burning up at a mere 120,000 mile distance from Prosapia-1 in the summer, and Joramputta, The freezing gas giant with an orbital distance akin to the Sol system's Saturn. It occasionally drifts, for periods of about 14 earth-weeks, into the system's goldilocks zone.
