Tawris is a planet within the Nile Galaxy. On the orders of Khepra, Khensu sends Cleo, Brian (with his sentry), and Akila come to the planet and travel through the Bisu jungle to retrieve a data file. In the process, they fight with a legion of Xerxes, which capture Brian, Akila, and Khensu, with Cleo falling down into the indigenous peoples homeland. She later convinces them to fight alongside her to liberate the planet from the Xerxs.
This planet is covered in jungles and seems to be generally terrestrial. Various animals likely live on the planet, apart from the "Fungus God" and Teresians, nonviolent peoples.

- The name Teresian may be based off the word terrestrial, meaning Earth-bound
- Bisu may be a name modeled after Ancient Egypt
- According to the Wikipedia article on the subject, Bes, also spelled as Bisu, "together with his feminine counterpart Beset, is an Ancient Egyptian deity worshipped as a protector of households and, in particular, of mothers, children and childbirth. Bes later came to be regarded as the defender of everything good and the enemy of all that is bad. Bes may have been a Middle Kingdom import from Nubia or Somalia, and his cult did not become widespread until the beginning of the New Kingdom. Worship of Bes spread as far north as the area of Syria, and later into the Roman and Achaemenid Empires."

Without giving any spoilers Cleo and crew visit an alien planet and meet some very interesting inhabitants. At this point the final art style was still being determined. Our fearless Art Director @drawslikeagirl and design supervisor @hootle did a fantastic job coming up with the final line and color style that was applied to the rest of the show."
