Jupiter, a gas giant, is the fifth and largest planet in the solar system and is the first planet outside of the asteroid belt that separates The Rim from The Core. It is under the rule of the Moon Lords.
"In the steel blue sky, the marbled surface of Jupiter undulates… It seems the vast and evil head of a marble god.” — Darrow
Jupiter is a large gas giant and is mentioned as having a marbled-colored surface.
Because Jupiter emits massive amounts of radiation, special measures had to be taken during the terraforming of her moons. For example, engineers covered most of Io, the closest Galilean moon, with pulse fields, and thickened the atmosphere to filter out the excess amount of radiation coming from planet.
Jupiter is not terraformed and remains uninhabited, since it is a gas giant.
The First Moon Lord Rebellion Edit
In 683 PCE, the Governors of the moons of Jupiter, allied with other Moon Lords of the Rim, tried to establish independence from the Core after Octavia au Lune beheaded her father and crowned herself Sovereign of Society. This event was called the Moon Lord Rebellion.
The Second Moon Lord Rebellion Edit
Jupiter and it’s moons were also a central part of the second rebellion of The Rim. The Raa family, who hail from Io, were the first to declare independence and then pressured other leaders from other populous moons to join.
