Lexx orbiting the planet Water
1 standard gravity
Twin-planet with Fire
|Location||Sol System, Dark Zone|
|Destroyed by the Lexx|
Water is an aquatic planet situated in the Dark Zone next to an desert wasteland planet called Fire. The proximity between Fire and Water is so close that they share a single atmosphere, allowing people to pass through a twister from one planet to another without fear of suffocation. The planets Fire and Water are in a counter-orbit with Earth. It is the location for much of Season 3.
Like Fire is the afterlife for the sinful dead, Water is the afterlife for all good souls. Like its counterpart Planet Fire, the souls on Water have no memory of how they arrived there; they simply "woke up" there one day. Life on Water seems to have been meant to be full of unmarred beauty and contentment, but this is shattered by frequent war parties from Fire, which arrive via hot air balloons through the planets' shared atmosphere.
While Fire is ruled and in many ways physically controlled by Prince, Water does not appear to have a similar guardian.
The planet Water consists almost entirely of water (presumably fresh water, because it is often referred to as being drinkable). It may not even have a solid core; in Lexx 3.12 "The Beach", Kai sinks to the bottom of the ocean of Water, but never reaches a solid floor. Instead, when he reaches the center of the planet he rematerializes on the surface, in the settlement of Gametown. On the way down, Kai passes many souls of the good, presumably sinking through the ocean while waiting for room to reincarnate on the surface of the planet.
Water is destroyed at the end of Season 3 in Lexx 3.13 "Heaven and Hell". After Xev commands the Lexx to destroy Fire, Prince is freed from his body. His spirit possesses the Lexx and destroys Water, finally ending the war between Fire and Water. As the Lexx looks for the nearest planet to feed on, it is revealed that Fire and Water were part of the Earth's solar system, following the same orbit as the Earth but on the other side of the Sun, and it is revealed the souls from Fire and Water reincarnated on Earth.
The inhabitants of Water all appear to be youthful, poetic, and energetic humans. Many inhabitants of Water were killed throughout the war so the planets population has decreased somewhat; however, it is implied that when killed on water, you reincarnate there after a while. Below is a list of inhabitants of the planet Water:
- Brock (Game Town)
- Bunny (Game Town)
- Fifi (Game Town)
- May (May's Town)
- Tulip, Lilly, and Daffodil (Garden)
