Circe's erratic orbit results in a seven-hundred year climatic cycle that has limited the development of the planetary ecosystem, with a handful of plant varieties the only species native to the world. The early colonists faced a long struggle to develop a world capable of sustaining human life, fighting climate as the world approached perihelion in 2831 as well as near-toxic levels of heavy metals in the soil. The settlers spent considerable effort introducing Terran flora and fauna, mostly deliberately, but with occasional accidental releases like the genetically engineered hell's horses adding an element of chaos to the mix. The hell's horses adapted to a niche for which the scientist had few plans: the vast deserts.

Forests now cover Circe's rolling hills, with Circian oak a prized commodity, However, the planet's violent storms - a result of Circe's massive twin moons - frequently wreak havoc with the oak plantations as winds of up to 200 kph uproot even the oldest trees. Buildings are reinforced against these storms, using the latest adaptive architecture; in the early days of the colonization effort, however, the storms caused major loss of life. Scientists on Circe have undertaken numerous studies on the impact of the plant reaching aphelion, due to occur in 3184. They expect the storm systems to worsen, possibly prompting evacuation sometime in the thirty-second century.

Circe is the site of the Clan’s greatest infamy: the Wolverine Treachery. The largest elements of the traitor Clan defended their enclave against the wolves and used nuclear weaponry to destroy Dehra Dun, the capital of their long-time enemies, Clan Snow Raven. Instead of rebuilding, the Ravens moved their capital to Lum. Like Hiroshima before it, the center of Dehra Dun stands as monument to the horror of such weapons.

[3060] Until recently, four clans occupied Circe. The recent fall of the Smoke Jaguars and the ejection of the Nova Cats, however, prompted a major shift in the balance of power. Working with the withdrawing Nova Cats, the Snow Ravens launched a blitzkrieg assault that netted them more than two-thirds of the planet. Khan Vlad Ward has so far refrained from taking decisive action against the Raven's aggressive expansion, but such a move is almost certainly part of the Crusader Wolves' long-term plans.
