Mass Effect and Mass Effect 3

Mass Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Orbital Period: 8 Earth Years

Tyr is compositionally quite similar to Earth. However, it lies over 4 AU from Asgard, and possesses an atmosphere primarily composed of nitrogen and ethane. While a potential target of terraforming, the presence of the "shirt sleeves" habitable Terra Nova in the same system relegated Tyr to a support role.

Nearly a hundred corporations--human and alien--have constructed extensive teleoperated mining, refining, and manufacturing facilities across the face of Tyr. Combined with the platinum lodes of Terra Nova, the resources they produce are driving development of the local hydrogen fuel cell industries. The Asgard system now supplies nearly 4% of the galactic market.

Mass Effect 3[edit | edit source]

Tyr is compositionally similar to Earth. However, it lies over 4 AU from Asgard and possesses an atmosphere primarily composed of nitrogen and ethane. While a potential target for terraforming, the proximity of the shirt-sleeves habitable Terra Nova relegated Tyr to a support role.

Nearly one hundred corporations--human and alien--constructed tele-operated mining, refining, and manufacturing facilities across the planet. The Reapers immediately targeted these, seeking to cut off the Alliance's supply of hydrogen fuel cells.
