Geography and AtmosphereEdit
Rakosa is a cold world, with a mean surface temperature of 10 degrees Celsius. Arlekt cities are only present in the planet's eastern hemisphere. The atmosphere is similar to Earth, but with only 17% oxygen, and more trace gases. It has one large sea, known as the Stygian Sea.
All life on Rakosa was brought to the planet from Dinoterra by a now extinct race, over 250 million years ago.
Rakosa's biosphere has suffered a mass extinction ever since the Arlekt gained sapience. Excessive hunting, habitat destruction and pollution has lead to the extinction of many groups, including the gigantic gigatheres, a group of massive dicynodonts.
However, Arlekt conservation groups are now working on restoring the planet by resurrecting the extinct species.
So far, around twenty large animal species have been resurrected.
