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


Leonis has always been a major center of education and industry and, despite the gradual integration of the colonies, it has maintained its own distinctive language and culture. With almost no axial tilt, the planet is blessed with a mild and predictable climate, which means spectacular beaches and year-round ski slopes. Not surprisingly, Leonan food and wine are considered among the best in the colonies. Despite historical clashes on Picon and other colony worlds, Leonis is now on relatively good terms with its neighbor Virgon.[1]


The Twelve Colonies are located in the Cyrannus Star System. Leonis is in the second orbit around the Helios Beta star in that system. Its celestial neighbor is the planet Virgon. [2]
