Encyclopedia > Fire (Lexx)

In the sci-fi television series LEXX, the fictional planet "Fire" is the afterlife for all evil souls, and the location for much of Season 3. It shares a tight mutual orbit and an atmosphere with Planet Water, which is the afterlife for all good souls. The souls on Water and Fire have no memory of how they arrived there; they simply "woke up" there one day.

Fire is ruled by Prince, a man with supernatural powers who may be the Devil. Prince controls certain aspects of Fire, such as having influence over the queue in which evil souls wait to be reincarnated on Fire (there are too many evil souls in the two universes for them to all reincarnate on Fire at the same time). Other leaders on Fire wage constant war against Prince; these include Duke, who has lesser supernatural powers, and Queen, who is the reincarnation of the cannibal warlord Giggerota from Season 1. The other major named character on Fire is Priest, Prince's cowardy lackey. Ismbard Prince is the cruel ruler of the Planet Fire in the Third Series of the science-fiction television show Lexx. ...

Fire is an inhospitable planet, with its entire surface covered in desert and open seas of lava. Even when the sun beats down mercilessly on the desert sands, the ground below is hotter still than the sky above. Fire is said to have no water of its own, and people on the open sands during daylight quickly die. The inhabitants of Fire live in enormous towers, each of which contains a single city. These provide them shade from the sun and possibly keep them cooler by raising them away from the planet's warm surface. Prince's city, Princetown, is cooled by an enormous bellows powered by damned souls forced to pedal on exercise bikes attached to Guillotines. The Maiden, an older Scottish design. ...


The inhabitants of Fire frequently raid Water by traveling there in hot air balloons through the planets' shared atmosphere. They do this partly to collect water, and partly to sadistically kill the good souls on Water. But however many times Prince's armies kill all the inhabitants of Water, he and the other rulers of Fire continuously fight amongst themselves until they undermine their rule of the paradise planet and are once more confined to their own tormenting planet. In addition, the inhabitants of Water simply reincarnate and the war continues. For this reason, Prince is excited when the Lexx appears, with the potential to finally destroy Water. Hot air balloons are the oldest successful human flight technology, dating back to the Montgolfier brothers invention in Annonay, France in 1783. ...

Fire is destroyed by the Lexx under the command of Xev at the end of Season 3. This act frees all the damned souls of Fire, and also frees Prince's spirit from his body. Prince then posesses the Lexx and destroys Water, finally ending his war. As the Lexx begins to search for the nearest planet to feed on, it is revealed that Fire and Water were in the Earth's solar system, in the same orbit as Earth but on the opposite side of the Sun in the L3 Lagrangian point. Zev of B3K is a major character on the television show Lexx. ... The Lagrangian points (IPA: ; also Lagrange point, L-point, or libration point), are the five positions in interplanetary space where a small object affected only by gravity can theoretically be stationary relative to two larger objects (such as a satellite with respect to the Earth and Moon). ...
