Covered in a super-dense and carbon dioxide-rich atmosphere, Dremeli is the home world of the species with the same name, and is located in the Amethyst Ring Galaxy about 67 million light years away from the Milky Way. It is over 5 billion years old with ecosystems blossoming with life.
Although the conditions on Dremeli could support gigantic trees and forests, the landscapes are instead covered in a layer of long grass with flower-like plants that are found scattered. The grass is a food source for most terrestrial herbivores on the planet, as well as a few aerial herbivores too. Flowers with bio-luminescence light up at night to communicate with each other.
However, a thick fog of sulfur dioxide coats the entire planet, preventing long distance vision. Most plants and animals are adapted to filtering out the sulfur dioxide through filters in their noses. A likely source for the fog could originate from past volcanic eruptions, which eject gases and ash into the atmosphere.
The climate tends to remain cold which stops winds exceeding less than ten miles per hour, the slowest wind speed on the planet. Occasionally, hurricanes will form when wind speeds exceed over 60 miles per hour and the ocean temperatures rise above 35 degrees Celsius. When storms do form, they can kick up ocean waves to over twelve meters tall.
When the first human colonists arrived near the star system's edge, they immediately scanned for extra-terrestrial activity, however, no artificial signals were detected. They ventured closer and found a densely-packed atmospheric world, and discovered the lifeforms that inhabit the small planet. The humans launched a shuttle towards the planetary surface, but failed to survive the dense atmosphere and exploded, with the debris spreading within a twenty-mile radius. Another shuttle was launched and successfully landed on the surface. However, the local inhabitants soon captured the surface expedition team and tortured them painfully. Five returned, two never made it back to the orbiting human space stations.
