"Kaity marveled at the Global River. It was so wide that it was quite visible from space, being about 6 Earth miles wide on average. It cut through Syvoric, separating the city into three sections...
Vexador’s sprawling capital was divided into mostly pleasant precincts. The 1st precinct was the heart of the city, where Vexador’s government resided, and all other precincts were sequentially numbered outward from it."
(Vengeance of Sorrow, p. 6)
Vexador is a desert world. There are no oceans, and its main sources of water are landlocked seas and the Global River, which spans half of the planet. Desert climates range from semi-arid grassland to lifeless dune seas to cactus-dotted canyon country. Greenery thrives around the rivers and freshwater seas. The northern pole is Vexador's one climate exception, being composed of the Jaharil Mountains, a circular range rising as high as 13,000 feet. Snow caps the Jaharil Range year-round, providing melt that feeds the Global River.
Temperatures on Vexador are generally hot, with a significant difference between summer, winter, or altitude. Syvoric City's winters average a high of 55, but its summer average sits around 100°F. Summers in the inhospitable Sea of Giant Dunes can peak at 125°F, while at the roots of the Jaharil Mountains, one can experience nightly lows of 15 °F. The planet receives little rainfall in general, with the exception of the northern pole.
Because Vexador only figures into a small part of Starganauts, I will introduce its people here. The main groups of inhabitants are the Yvoric/Altil, the Hematuse, and the Jaharil/Inxoti. The Yvoric and Altilni intermingled after the former conquered the latter, creating Syvoric City and the first advanced civilization. About 30% of Vexador's population lives in Syvoric alone.
The Hematuse are the proud dwellers of the lower Global River. Fierce warriors in ancient times, they still remain defiant and highly independent. The Jaharil/Inxoti inhabit Vexador in the northern regions and east of the Gakra Sea. Though not intermingled like the Yvoric and Altil, the Jaharil and Inxoti are allies. All three people groups are at peace with one another through a planetary non-aggression pact.
One of the Starganaut forms, Crosshair, comes from Vexador. 200 years before the Starganauts, Syvoric City, was plagued with gang warfare. A hitwoman who called herself Crosshair got arrested and began aiding the police against her father's gang. The power of the gangs was broken, and Vexador entered an era of peace and prosperity...its Golden Age. For her part in improving Syvoric, Crosshair was given the honor of taking the red crystal to the planet Sahara.
