One, massing about 1.4 times Earth, is at such a distance that if it's got an oxygen/nitrogen atmosphere, the average climate would be comparable to Hawaii (thus, probably unbearably hot at the equator); the other, at about 1.7 Earths and in the next orbit out, would be more comparable to Alaska.

So maybe the idea that Remus/ch'Havran is at a distance to have a livable climate on the dark side, and be tidally locked to Eisn, is within the realm of possibility (noting, of course, that if the world is tidally locked, and the dark side is habitable, the light side must be hellishly hot - and living underground would be reasonable, what with the constant hurricane blowing between the day pole and the night pole...).

When I make you breakfast in bed, a simple "thank you" is all I need. Not all this "who are you and how did you get into my house" nonsense.
