The Sol System as depicted in the Director

The Sol System (also known as Solar System or simply Sol) is the planetary system inhabited by Humanity. During the Golden Age, humanity forged an empire that spanned much of the system, but retreated to Earth following the catastrophic effects of the Collapse and abandoned their many worlds to various other forces.

The system is currently inhabited by both the Traveler and the Darkness, the latter is in the midst of sieging the system with its Black Fleet. The planets and the Sun are also associated with dark-matter based intelligences that make up the Nine.
