Canis is an abandoned Dom'Kavash colony. For aeons it was the center for Dom'Kavash technological research and knowledge, but now it is just a relict of past glory. Technologies developed long ago are still there, but their use was forbidden due to the dangers of its great power. No one knows for sure what dangers and hidden secrets lies there. The Dom'Kavash said to Edison Trent:
"This region of space is much more dangerous and treacherous than the ones you are used to flying in human colonies. There are many dangers on the way ahead and the Nomads you will encounter are the merest threat in all this."
