Like most of Garden's moons, Grandchild was larger than its parent, but there was confusion about its size and shape. Astronomical records indicated that it was spherical, yet its dimensions were listed as 45 miles (72 kilometers) by 13 miles (21 kilometers), indicating rather an ellipsoid.[note 1] Its surface was perfectly smooth, with no craters from meteor strikes at all. It had an eerie off-white color.
Rumors & LegendsEdit
It was widely believed that, when Yggdrasil's Child, the gargantuan plant holding together the asteroids of Garden, died, a new plant would appear with some connection to the moon Grandchild.[note 2]
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 The source claims that Grandchild is spherical, yet it provides two dimensions, so it is ambiguous whether a sphere or ellipsoid was intended.
- ↑ One potential theory is that the moon is a seed from Yggdrasil's Child, but no further suggestions are provided in the source material.
