Oort

Group: Small Body Group
Class: Cometary Class

Oort type cometary bodies are found in stable orbits in the most distant reaches of a solar system, out in the oort clouds. They have never ventured closer than this, so they remain pristine and untouched since their formation.

They are abundant in pure ices, and often lack the tholins found on bodies closer to their star. Such places are dark and cold, for even their own star will be only a slightly brighter than normal speck against the background of more distant stars.
