Naphara is an Earth-like planet, located in the Goldilocks zone of a faraway solar system.
It has several continents, and a large saltwater ocean, as well as one moon. Its gravity, atmosphere and temperatures are almost identical to those of the Earth.
There is a network of dormant wormholes linking the Earth and Naphara together, and at one point, when they were active, creatures would be sucked in and roam around on the other planet.
At first glance, the planet appears to be very lush and fertile, however, it is an extremely hostile environment.
Symbiotic relationships between species are almost nonexistent, as everything is either carnivorous or omnivorous.
Trees and plants have over time, developed numerous defences against other species.
An example of this is the Payne tree. It has long poisonous barbs that protrude from its trunk, as well as small seeds that cover its bark.
The trees grow in tight groves, assisting only each other.
The trees spend most of the year growing their fruits, which are packed with nutrients and contain a single large seed within them.
The smaller seeds on the trunk constantly fall off, and grow small, yet extremely vicious shrubs that are designed to kill any other plants that happen to be growing nearby, to ensure space for the healthy seeds once they are ready to fall.
Napharan wildlife is extremely vicious and hostile, with only a few exceptions.
One of its most dangerous predators, remains unnamed by most creatures, as those that encounter them, generally don't survive long enough to tell the tale. The success of these beasts is mainly due to the fact that they are not picky eaters, and will attack and eat anything they can find.
The most intelligent species on Naphara is a genus commonly referred to as the dragon. They can come in many different varieties around the planet, and can have various temperaments. Dragons are extremely curious, which is one of the main reasons they found their way to the planet Earth so frequently.
