    Short summary describing this location.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    The real star system has three stars, Beta Persei A, B and C, with the A and B stars in close orbit of each other (with Beta Persei B eclipsing A for ten hours every three days), and the C star orbiting around them at an average distance of 2.7 AU every 680 days (1 AU is the distance from the Earth to the Sun, and 2.7 AU is roughly equivalent of the distance to the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter).

    In the Phantasy Star universe, the Algol planetary system is composed of one star named Algol and 4 orbiting planets: Palma, Motavia, Dezoris and Rykros.
