RyiXy'an ( SRX, literally Cradle of Xi'an; Xi'an: 9ryi9xyan2 (Proper); )[1] also known as Hyoton III, Cradle, and Xradle[2], is the homeworld and former capital world of the Xi'an race.[3][4] The planet's atmosphere was destroyed in the Xi'an civil war in 19755 BCE,[4] rendering it uninhabitable. The name has sometimes spelled RyiX'yan.[5][6][7]


The atmosphere was destroyed during the peace talks at end of the civil war in 19770 BCE,[4][8][9] when House Kl.ō attempted to assassinate the leadership of Houses Chii, Ru'a and Uai'i by sabotaging the local weather satellites. Instead they accidentally turned the entire world into an uninhabitable smog planet.

Any attempts to restore the planet using Terraforming has failed.[10]


The planet's flora and fauna was described as a 'lush' tropical world with a hot and humid climate.[11] It was also home of the later domesticated species called Ngii.[12] It has an orbital period of 1.28 Standard Earth Years.[13]


The name RyiXy'an literally translates as "Cradle of the Xi'an", and is sometimes translated simply as "Cradle" or as "Xradle". The idea of a Cradle is significant in Xi'an culture, invoking a sense of care and comfort[2]. The alternative spelling of RyiX'yan is "less correct"[5], and in Xi'an writing could correspond to an older spelling that predates the invention of the "XY" letter form[2].
