100th Millennium Wiki

Florescence is a fairly small E0 satellite galaxy orbiting the Via Sagittaria Galaxy. The galaxy has a very low concentration of metals, making life comparatively rare in it. Even so, The Ravis and Llæns call this galaxy home. The Empyrean controls the entirety of the galaxy as well as its nearest neighbor.

As of the current year, Florescence has a population of over 1.7 octillion mostly residing within the core of the galaxy. At 41 million stars in size, Florescence is the smallest major satellite of Via Sagittaria. It is one of the most densely populated regions of space as well as one of the highest valued regions per system. The average system within Florescence is far more valuable than those elsewhere, causing the galaxy to have one of the highest costs of living in its region.

The species make up of the galaxy has its origin with the native Ravis and Llæn species. While the Ravis naturally evolved, the Llæns are an artificial species incapable of natural reproduction. The galaxy is dominated by the religion known as Fuukanism, a religion based primarily on the idea that all individuals are evil and acknowledging their evil is key to avoiding their deity's wrath. The most common language in the galaxy is Xeno.

Galactic Neighborhood

The galaxy Florescence is fairly remote, with its nearest neighbor being over 400,000 light years away. Its nearest neighbor is also its parent galaxy, Via Sagittaria. Other nearby galaxies include Via Lacrimosa at 550,000 light years and the Cerise Galaxy at 575,000 light years.

Name

The Ravin name for the galaxy, "Vynos" is best translated as the word, "Florescence." Florescence means, "the process of flowering." The name comes from their religious belief that their galaxy is the origin point of their religion. Many believe that their religion will eventually "flower," causing it to spread rapidly among individuals residing outside of the galaxy. Originally, the name was more meant to represent how the Empyreal civilization would colonize the rest of the universe. Once that has proven impossible, Fuukanists largely shifted to a more peaceful means of spreading their faith.

Astrography

Florescence, while controlled entirely by The Empyrean, is divided in two parts, Ravi-Empyrea and Llæ-Empyrea. Together these two nations make up the two jurisdictions of the Empyrean. While Ravi-Empyrea is a part of the Confederacy of Borealis, Llæ-Empyrea is not. The central black hole of Florescence, Mei'os, is the most populous body in the galaxy at almost 500 septillion inhabitants within its direct orbit. Other important worlds include Alphos and Yuusha, the home worlds of the Ravis and Llæns respectively.

The galaxy has a very low metallicity, causing life to be very rare within it. While in many galaxies, bacteria-covered worlds are relatively common, Florescence only has one planet known to have naturally evolved life, Alphos. The other planet to have life since antiquity, Yuusha, shows evidence of terraformation, suggesting that the life on its surface is from another world or genetically engineered.
