Lykos is one of ten thousand underground mining colonies on the planet Mars. It is also the home of Darrow and his family, and one of the first colonies under Mars's surface.


The Community[edit | edit source]

The people of Lykos are one of dance and song. For that reason, as a reminder of their place as slaves, they are forbidden from one song and one dance of theirs, which is punishable by death if ever performed.

The Common is a tiered circular spiral. Taverns and repair depots ring the lowest level; Gamma homes fill the next several levels, followed by supply depots, a sheer wall, and then, high above in the ceiling, a sunken metal dome with nanoGlass viewports. The fortress where the Reds' keepers live and sleep is called the Pot.
