Aerilon is a planet in the Cyrannus Star System, orbiting the Helios Delta star. Aries is the ancient name of the colony, which was named after one of the Twelve Tribes of Kobol.


Sharing an orbit with the planets Canceron and Hestia, Aerilon is located at the gas giant's L4 libration point. Most of the planet's land mass is within the temperate zone; and the mild climate and moderate precipitation make its rolling hills and prairies ideal for farming and grazing. Aerilonians tends to be poor and relatively uneducated with a reputation as hard workers and plain speakers. This notion of self-reliance runs deep on Aerilon, where the government does not provide social services or tolerate political dissension.[1]

In the News[]
