Offical Name[]

Odrion I

Indigenious Name[]

Osilon- This is the name for the planet used by the largest persentage of the population within the system Odrion. The planet is almost universally believed to be the god/goddess of light/color/rainbows. Because of its short orbital period, it produces a regular refatory event that can be seen during the night and sometimes during the day.

Orbital Radius[]

The average distance of Osilon from Odrion is about 371000000000 MDU. The Orbit of Osilon is very regular, only varing by 1000000000 MDU. Some suggest that because Osilon existed before the current system that it caused Osilon to have a very regular orbit. No one is really sure why Osilon did not form the center of the system, already being a large mass when everything else around it would have been gas. Some studies suggest that Osilon is slowly moving towards the star and one day may be consumed by Odrion. The study was inconclusive.

General Planet Information[]

Osilon consists almost entirely of one element, Carbon. Furthermore, all the observable carbon of the planet is in the form of diamond. The surface is very regular. The only imperfections that can be found is where something struck the surface hard enough to chip the crystal. Very little asteroid debris can be found on the surface. Some consider its fast rotation to be the cause. Due to the transparency of the crystal, a black core can be observed. No one is sure why. Theories range from optical illusions to a new form of carbon.

There is no atmosphere, Osilon being too small to trap one. Many wonder if it would have been large and dense enough to pull itself into a sphere if it had not been made that way by other means.

Natural History[]

Osilon is the oldest known object in the Odrion system. Osilon was previously the core of a class L dwarf, the smaller of two stars in the previous system that occupied Odrion's current position in the galaxy. When the larger star exploded, the resulting shock wave blew all of the outer material off Osilon, leaving behind the dense, hard core. The dwarf star had just enough mass to be able to form carbon at its center. Due to the temperature and pressure at the core of the star, the carbon was converted into diamond crystal. The core went through the disc phase of the new system without collecting any large amount of particulate, leaving the diamond visible and causing the planetoid to be transparent. The center of Osilon appears to be black but no one is sure whether that is due to optics, a form of nitrogen, or some new form of carbon that has not been previously been discovered because of the extreme conditions required to create it.
