Raea is the primary star of the Cnara System. There used to be a large system around Raea when it was in the main sequence, but when it transformed into a red giant, it swallowed most of the planets except the outer planet of Cerlore. A small kuiper belt surrounds the star.
Raea was formed as an F-type main sequence star around 6 billion years ago from a long since dissipated nebula. Like most stars, it was surrounded by a protoplanetary disk in its early days, which began to form planets. However, once Raea reached the end of the main sequence, it expanded into a red giant, swallowing all planets except the outer planet Cerlore.
Raea will soon blow out a planetary nebula and leave behind a blue subdwarf, which will relatively quickly shrink down to a white dwarf.
- Cerlore // hot gas supergiant
- Scab // massive moon, almost the size of earth. partially covered in lava.
- Horus // luna-sized moon, also covered in lava.
- Flame // large moon, again covered in lava.
Raea is the site of the Raea STB Station, a SICTIRIAD station with the interesting characteristic of being the closest station to any homeworld. Its construction was facilitated by partially disasssembling Cerlore's moon Scab to construct a starlifting mechanism and a dyson swarm.
