Gendius V has two polar ice caps, and desert in between. Forests and jungles dot the landscape, as well as rock outcroppings. There is one ocean towards the south of the planet. Few creatures inhabit the forests of Gendius V, killing anything that approaches. It is no wonder that no intelligent form of life has evolved on the planet, with uninhabitable deserts, deadly forests, and barren rock plateaus. The first colonies were only used by scientists who were studying the strange topology of the planet, with glaciers sitting right alongside deserts, and jungles and forests all around. Other frequent visitors included crazed hunters, hoping to snatch one of the creatures living in the jungle, but many did not escape the jungle alive. Those who had been lucky enough to land on the planet and survive told tales of the creatures living in the forest, each more wicked than the last, but the scientists who were studying the planet denied the stories, claiming that there were perhaps only a handful of these creatures living on the planet, and one must be very unlucky to stumble upon one. Other than the creatures in the woods, Gendius V is also home to desert birds, and some small desert rodents, which the birds feed on primarily. The glaciers were relatively empty as far as the scientists could tell, but odd tracks have been found, with no owner discovered yet.
In addition to the deaths of crazed hunters, scientists have also died while studying this unique environment. Fewer than 15 scientists have been killed on the planet, and at least twice as many mercenaries and trained hunters have been killed searching for the missing scientists. The bodies were never recovered, which leads scientists to conclude that either the monsters in the forests eat the entire body, or bury it somewhere where it hasn’t been uncovered as of yet.
