Skiel is a oceanic planet located in the Tersells system, and is the homeworld of the Suracke. Nearly 80% of its surface is covered in water, and the remaining land is mostly plains and deserts, however some small islands have forests. The planet has reltively poor biodiversity due to the nature of its environments, and many of the native species inhabit large areas of land.
Skiel is composed of numerous landmasses, which range in size from continents to small island groups.
Because of Skiel's large oceans, the suracke allowed the enkirid to establish colonies in the planet's oceans. Additionally, the roruk have been given the right to establish colonies on some of the forested islands.
