The Solar System as depicted in the Director

The Solar System (also called the Sol system) is the planetary system inhabited by humanity. During the Golden Age, humanity forged an empire that spanned much of the system, but the catastrophic effects of the Collapse forced humans to retreat to Earth, abandoning their many worlds to various other forces.

Notable celestial bodies[edit]

  • Mercury—a former garden world, now converted by the Vex into a planet-sized machine.[1]
  • Venus—a volcanic jungle world and the site of the Ishtar Academy, humanity's greatest center of learning. Now occupied by the Vex and the Fallen House of Winter.[2]
  • Earth—mankind's homeworld. The only safe human settlement is The Last City, with pockets of hidden human communities. The Fallen House of Devils and House of Kings control the rest of the planet.[3]
  • Mars—the first human city outside of Earth, Freehold, was founded here. Now occupied by the Cabal, who are fighting invading Vex forces for control.[5]
    • The Black Garden—a Vex realm accessible from and tied to Mars.[6]
    • Phobos—one of Mars's two moons. Phobos was controlled my the Cabal until the Taken invaded and destroyed the Cabal outpost.[7]
  • Asteroid Belt—a ring of asteroids and Golden Age debris marking the boundary between the Inner System and the Outer System.[8]
  • Jupiter—a gas giant. Its moons are believed to have been a major cornerstone of Golden Age civilization; now controlled by the Nine.[11]
    • Ganymede—the largest moon in the Solar System, occupied by Vex and their ruins.
    • Io—a volcanic, sulfuric moon occupied by the Cabal and Vex. Vex ruins lie all across the planet, and the Taken are highly active.
    • Europa—a moon of Jupiter and former human colony, under the control of the Nine.
  • Saturn—a gas giant. Oryx's Dreadnaught and a Hive fleet now orbit the planet.[12]
    • Hyperion—a moon of Saturn, mentioned to have traded with Titan, and was home to some Ishtar scientists.
    • Rhea—a moon of Saturn, mentioned to be under control of the Nine.
    • Telesto—a moon notable for attracting Harbinger matter after the Battle of Saturn.
    • Titan—a methane ocean moon. The Hive and the Fallen lurk around the moon.
  • Nessus—a dormant Vex Machine World that is also under Red Legion occupation.
  • The Myriad—a structure located at the furthest reaches of the Solar system, occupied by Vex.
