Description Edit

Mass Effect Edit

Tyr is compositionally quite similar to Earth. However, it lies over 4 AU from Asgard, and possesses an atmosphere primarily composed of nitrogen and ethane. While a potential target for terraforming, the presence of the 'shirt sleeves' habitable Terra Nova relegated Tyr to a support role.

Nearly a hundred corporationshuman and alien – have constructed extensive teleoperated mining, refining, and manufacturing facilities across the face of Tyr. Combined with the platinum lodes of Terra Nova, the resources they produce are driving development of the local hydrogen fuel cell industries. The Asgard system now supplies nearly 4% of the galactic market.

Mass Effect 3 Edit

Tyr is compositionally quite similar to Earth. However, it lies over 4 AU from Asgard, and possesses an atmosphere primarily composed of nitrogen and ethane. While a potential target for terraforming, the proximity of the "shirt-sleeves habitable" Terra Nova relegated Tyr to a support role.

Nearly one hundred corporations -- human and alien -- constructed tele-operated mining, refining, and manufacturing facilities across the planet. The Reapers immediately targeted these, seeking to cut off the Alliance's supply of hydrogen fuel cells.

Trivia Edit

  • Loki's orbit forces Asgard's mass to be 0.992 sols. If the semimajor axis of Tyr is over 4 AU as the description says, then its year must also be more than 8 Earth years.
  • In Norse mythology, Tyr is a god of war, victory, single combat, and heroic glory.
  • Tyr's capital city Kaldidalur, is an alternative name of Kaldidalsvegur, the shortest of the highland tracks traversing the Highlands of Iceland.
