Scandia is the home planet of the Thoronians.
Scandia is a cold tundra. Mountains are frequent, but occasionally volcanoes appear on the view of the planet. The Thoronians live next to these volcanoes to keep their temperature average, even though they are cold-adaptive.
Due to Scandia being quite rich in minerals, the Thorosians' hammer ability got very useful over time. The clean atmosphere also allowed Thoronians to communicate on high distances.
Scandia is a play on Scandinavia, one of the coldest regions in North Europe, which includes Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.
Scandium is also a chemical element.
