Mass Effect & Mass Effect 3[edit | edit source]

A large but low-density terrestrial world, Faringor is generally believed to consist mainly of water ice. Occasional upwelling of metals, caused by the interacting tidal forces of several large moons, suggest the core is small, but extremely dense.

Faringor has a thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide and ethane. Its frozen surface is mainly composed of dark carbon-laced water ice.

Ten years ago, Faringor's grim surface color and dim illumination drew the cinematographer Rise Uvarsen to film the exterior scenes of "Starless" on location. Acknowledged as a masterpiece of gothic horror, the sets, - well-preserved by the vacuum - draw hundreds of tourists to the backwater system every year.
