Overview: Polyphony is the capital of the Cynos Union, and as such, is quite possibly the most important planet in the entire galaxy (although some people, especially the sookas, would disagree, saying that their own homeworlds outrank it). Originally a colony world of the Vossarull Ensemble, it was opened up to non-vossarull species at the end of the Abyssal War, and with the signing and ratification of the Treaty of Prima, Polyphony became the political and economic centre of the Cynos Union.

The original colony town of Prima became the capital city of Polyphony (as well as the whole Cynos) with the signing of that treaty, and this sprawling city remains the home of the Auralium Council to this day. The Auralium itself, the shining jewel of Polyphony’s crown, is one of the most popular sightseeing destinations within the Cynos, with regular tours of its revered halls running every three hours.

As with many of the inhabited Cynos worlds, Polyphony shows a marked similarity to the geology and climate of the human homeworld, Earth. It is not quite as dense as Earth, however, meaning that in spite of its slightly larger diameter, Polyphony has a surface gravity roughly nine-tenths that of the human homeworld, the same as the vossarull homeworld of Tessitura. Planetary population levels currently stand at 3 billion, with people from all six founder species living there permanently, although a large part of this population is made up of koetaani, who came to think of Polyphony as their home, after the destruction of their former homeworld, Klaz.
