The orbital period of Mazu is just under 228 hours (approx 9.5 days), and it is tidal locked due to how close to Ran it is located.

Mazu has one small moon known as Kanghui

Named for Mazu, a Chinese godddess of seafarers. The name Mazu was chosen due to the planet’s red coloring and the depiction of the goddess Mazu as a young woman in a red dress.
