DescriptionEdit

Mass Effect 2Edit

Cernunnos is a sizable gas giant with a hydrogen-nitrogen atmosphere. It is believed to be extrasolar capture due to its close stellar location. In a rare phenomenon, it is near enough to its red dwarf star to be within the life zone, though its massive size prevents the tidal lock that usually occurs at such a range. While nothing could survive on the surface of a planet with such crushing gravity, Cernunnos's moon Caleston is habitable. Cernunnos is skimmed for its abundant hydrogen, and refineries on Caleston process it into a metastable metallic form for use as starship fuel.

Mass Effect 3Edit

Cernunnos is a sizable gas giant with high nitrogen content. It is believed to be extrasolar capture due to its close stellar location. In a rare phenomenon, it is near enough to its red dwarf star to be within the life zone, although its massive size prevents the tidal lock that usually occurs at this range.

While nothing could survive on the surface of a planet with such crushing gravity, Cernunnos' moon, Caleston, has life. Cernunnos was skimmed for its abundant hydrogen, and refineries on Caleston processed it into a metastable metallic form for use as starship fuel. The Reapers have since destroyed this operation.
