"Lord of worlds, massive Jupiter and its moons must have been a cornerstone of Golden Age civilization. But the nature and extent of human presence there is now unknown. Old records refer to cities in ice and world-spanning oceans, but perhaps this is only poetry."
Grimoire description.[1]

Jupiter is the fifth and largest planet in the Solar System with several dozen moons.[1]

Overview

When the Traveler arrived at Jupiter, it terraformed the surrounding moons.[2] One of these moons, Europa, was colonized by humanity; this colony was later lost during the Collapse.[3] Another moon, Io, was partially terraformed when the Collapse occurred.[4]

Now ice-encrusted, abandoned cities are all that remain.[3][1] The survivors, however, appear to have been radically changed.[5] Jupiter (and possibly the other outer worlds) are now governed by the Nine, a mysterious group of entities whose power is rivaled only by the Awoken Queen.[6] The Nine seem to be interested in surviving human civilization and their Traveler, prompting them to send an agent to the City as their emissary.[7]

The Ahamkara are rumoured to still exist somewhere in the vicinity of Jupiter.[8]
