Procyon is a binary star system in Canis Minor. The inhabitants of this system are highly advanced who seek resources throughout the known Galaxy. 65 million years ago, they settled an Earth colony, for which they ended up going to war for.
Earth colony[edit | edit source]
A few centuries later, an advanced reptoid race from the Lokas or Talas, an alternate universe, came to Earth in interest for raw materials. It's quite possible that these reptoids seeded the indeginous dinosaurs, reptiles, and evolving Saurians, at much earlier time in Earth's creation. The reptoid's interests in Earth caused problems with the Procyons. Within a few lunar cycles, war broke out. The aftermath of the war incurred a mass extinction event on Earth, and quite possibly the scarring on Mars at the Valles Marineris.

Inuit[edit | edit source]
Known as Sikuliarsiujuittuq to the Inuit, Procyon was quite significant in their astronomy and mythology. Its eponymous name means "the one who never goes onto the newly formed sea-ice", and refers to a man who stole food from his village's hunters because he was too obese to hunt on ice. He was killed by the other hunters who convinced him to go on the sea ice. Procyon received this designation because it typically appears red (though sometimes slightly greenish) as it rises during the Arctic winter; this red color was associated with Sikuliarsiujuittuq's bloody end.
