Homeworld of the colossally congested Peldooie
A fungal planet in the tropics of the Andromeda Galaxy, Peldoon 9 is a mid-sized terrestrial world in a system largely comprised of gas giants. It is also home to the Peldooie species, who believe they were sneezed into being by their sun, Primus Peldoon. Although a legitimate form of faith, some scholars have interpreted this creation myth as a simple excuse for why the natives of Peldoon 9 are so nasally congested.
The average adult Peldooie has five distinct nostrils, each furcating along winding throats within the Peldooie's large frame. Under-developed Peldooie can be left with as little as two external nostrils, which is the cause of much jeering and lampoonery in Peldoon schoolyards. The amount of mucus generated by a five-nostrilled Peldooie has been described as "alarming" by some, and "terrifying" by others, and many Peldooie choose to wear a variety of masks and nasal apparatus while mixing in wider cosmic society.
Many Peldooie perch in the dizzying heights of the opisthokont funnels towering high over their planet's fungal forests. There are often calls by those residing on lower branches for a system of railings on the top layer to prevent any drop-off, or at the very least some form of drip tray.
