Pylope is the local gas giant of the Thlanax System. It is significantly further out than the two planets that lie between it and the system's star, Thlanax. Early on in the system's existence, it got close to becoming a second star, but didn't quite make it far enough to reach combustion, and transformed instead into a gas giant. It obtained its rings through some past and long-forgotten occurrence.
